, it's not a two speed...in fact yesterday I talked with International and they referred me to the local rep and he looked up the VIN and faxed me the "Line Set Ticket"
which is a list of all the original spec's for my bus when it was built. Boy am I a dummy! That was easy!! Shocked
Engine: 9.0L IH V8 Diesel
, Model Code BA18535, Ser# 0000534
Transmission: AT545 Allison 4SPD T326
(well it does shift REALLY SMOOTH)
Rear End: Spicer Model F170S Ratio 6.50
Apparently there's a tag somewhere on the bus that lists all these spec's. I found a partial tag on the drivers side valve cover...but about half of it is worn off. Thanks to the local Navistar/International dealer I now have a complete list of everything originally set up on the bus.
I would still like to find any manuals pertaining to this bus. Haven't located anything like that on the internet yet. Any suggestions as to where to look or who would have something like this?
haven't been up to Breckenridge yet....but I wonder how many skoolie's there are here in Colorado? Perhaps a Skoolie "roundup" or gathering
would be in order sometime in the future.
I'm taking next week off and with a buddy am going to start the careful demolition of the old interior. It should be interesting to start with a clean slate. As he sits right now the bus is nothing but a big room with electricity if hooked up to "Shore Power". The goal is design a bus that is fully capable of extended dry camping anywhere we choose in any season. So that when we've had enough of civilization we can just "bug out" to the hills, valley's and empty spaces for a while to regain our sanity
