Simple is good as long as smog police don't muck it up.

Well today was busy...
Checked into getting a a second 50 gallon propane tank, now looking for a used tank.
Checked on getting an off the shelf "Y" pipe, no luck. Custom exhaust here we come.*
Checked into getting 900 R 20 tires or something to fit, nothing. Custom rims and 22.5 tires down the road.
Found out I have Allison Transmission AT 540 3 speed

You may want to consider swapping out hubs/axles, yours appear to be an odd size.

Check the big truck wrecking yards for a much better price.

Love the older buses! I studied alternate fuels in school. Propane is cool and CNG but personally I would swap in a cheap 12v Cummins. Anything that big will get terrible MPG anyway and diesel will be cheaper. Sticking with the LPG engine and such is cheaper right now because that is what it came with. Keep us updated!

I took a look at my wheelchair lift today. It has a hydraulic pump and a single ram. From the ram goes 2 chains 1 for each side, the chains are stiff and gooy, need lubricant. Thinking if I keep the lift changing the hydraulic system with a electric actuator. But the lift takes up room in the bus, hmmm....
