9.0l international?

I'm looking at a school bus with the intent of converting it. I've worked on air cooled vw's a little bit but I have no experience at all with diesel. The bus I'm looking at is a 1983 35' international 9.0l with about 40,000 miles on it, is there anyone who is familiar with these motors that could give me an idea what to expect/what to look out for?

Have to admit, I haven't heard much good about them.

Also: they're pretty much oddballs by now...are there even parts available anymore?

Very loud and underpowered. I wouldn't recommend it. Now if that bus had the DT466, than you would be golden!!
