DT360 & Parts?

Hey, I am looking at a bus that has a DT360 in it. Since it hasn't been in production for quite some time, if parts would be required are they accessible enough for the age to not be a concern?

What would be a mileage to say this engine is gonna need major repairs in the future? It has 141k currently. Or I guess a better way to say it, what is the engine's life expectancy?

And a long shot question in the wrong forum, is it an alright veggie convert? No plans to do that part yet, and is not a deal breaker. Just curious.

Thanks!

They're common enough. Good engines.

no idea on veggie, but its a good solid engine.. you can still buy inframe kits for it and all as well. they are popular with some of the swappers and tractor pullers..
