I've decided to name my bus MAN CAVE

I think that will work for me. The bus is a 1986 International with a Ward body. It is powered by a DT466 and has a MT643. My conversion will be a simple one. I will finish whatever I need to title it as a RV first. The rest will come later. Here are a few pictures of my beast.

VERY nice!!! Your bus is extremely similar too mine, factory high top, underbelly storage, same engine/tranny combo, and budd rims!! The back deck looks sweet, too!

I can't remember, were Ward and Wayne in cahoots at one point? Because other than the older front clip, your bus looks identical to mine. Even the one piece lengths on the ceiling.

That looks like a prison bus from the outside because of the all white!

Smitty, it's the same bus. It sat all this time cause life got in the way. Not sure of height, I'll measure.

Some are staying, some are already gone. They take up a lot of space.

I don't think the rims are budds. They are 20" with inner tubes. I think they are split rims.

Possible brain fart. It's been so long, it might be a Wayne.

Is that good or bad? Maybe the cops will leave me alone if they think the same thing.

Re: I've decided to name my bus MAN CAVE

I posted twice under the mechanical section with no reply. Does anyone have the engine oil capacity of a 1986 DT466?


EDIT: Got my answer from nevrenufhp.
