Re: Ford 6.6 Brazilian diesel????

cummins 5.9 is one of the best skoolie engines in my humble opinion. rugged, reliable, lots of power, good fuel economy, and easy parts availability.

i also really like the brazialian ford, the dt 360/466. These are all inline 6 cylinder diesels.

i don't know if it would be a deal killer, but i would find much less desirable any v8 diesel, including the 7.3/6.9 navistar, gm diesels, detroit diesel, t444e, etc

not to say that a v8 motor in a bus would be a death sentance, but most semi-truck diesels(with the exception of screaming 2 stroke detroits) are inline 6 cylinder and they can go a million miles.

Re: Ford 6.6 Brazilian diesel????

We are really anxious to find a bus and this forum has been so far the most help. The advice and opinions have helped us so much.

Re: Ford 6.6 Brazilian diesel????

Okay, one last question then I'll try to refrain. Is an ford 66 pass '86 model 8.2 detroit with 120k miles for 1500.00 a good buy supposing it runs fine?
