Re: i may have found my bus

Ya, the 545's are tough as nails, but real fuel hogs. The new gen Allisons with full lock-up can save a bundle in diesel. I have a perfectly good 545 that came with my Cummins 4BTAA that I am going to swap out for a newer 5 or 6 speed with serious OD.

Re: i may have found my bus

didnt get to test drive on sunday .....they were closed on sun and,had nobody that could meet me there....if its ment to be the bus will wait
on a side note i did a little checking on my work truck.....looks like 349.xxx miles on that allison 545 with no rebuild...wow....its a 1991 with a 6.1 ford in front of it....engine has been rebuilt about 70.000 or so ago.....cold mornings it looks like its on fire but clears up....no racecar for sure!
