Re: How to Identify differns busses
I guess you are talking to me.
I have allison automatic transmission. it's b300 world transmission, 5 speed push button.
just as good are the b400, b500, and mt series.
top speed? I haven't reached it yet, and I have gone 80 mph going downhill. I cruise easily at 60-75, although I try to keep it at 62 mph, my sweet spot.
to be fair though, my bus is not a school bus per se, but you can find school buses with that engine easily.
one serious advice is if you are hitting the governor or top rpm ever in driving your bus, then you can kiss mileage goodbye. the bus is not designed to go at that speed.
