First of all, I'm excited to join this community and do my first bus conversion!
I have been looking at a 2008 Ford E450 w/ 6.0L V8 diesel engine over the last couple days... about 152k miles and used for senior transport.
Now I know absolutely nothing about converting a bus or buses in general, so I'm very excited about this forum!
I have read numerous horror stories
about the 6.0L V8 diesel engine.. but many of them mention 2003-2007 being the bad years.. although many also claim the last two years they were produced after 2007 they also had many problems.
The seller of the bus has been claiming no engine problems in the past, but I'm skeptical.
Even if there haven't been any engine problems up to this point, should I count on there being problems with this engine?
Should I avoid this engine altogether?
Thanks for the suggestions!
