i dug up this post that elliot made, but i'm still not sure what trans is in this bus....not that it matters. I'm pretty sure the bus is coming home tuesday. It is by far the nicest used bus i've ever seen. Less than 70K miles. It was never a school bus, it was purchased new by the kawanis club (some charitable organization) and used exclusively by them, and serviced exclusively by school bus mechanics. The gentleman who showed me the bus is in the kawanis club and also principle of one of the schools. It's a super clean bus, cummins 5.9. Unsure about the rear end, it was poring rain.

they were not used and easy to see.
AT545. Note simple mounting pad with two holes above each other near the front.
Nothing on oil pan.
MT643. Note complex mounting pad with four mounting holes.
Temperature sender on oil pan.
here's my actual trans......., it might not even be an allison. It doesn't seem to have the complex mounting holes up front, but it does have a plug in the oil pan....hmmm
