I wouldn't say stay away from the Fords. My 6.6 has been a great engine and lends itself rather well to a veggie oil conversion. Ditto for the 7.8 Brazilian. Heck, the later model Fords came with a 6BT 5.9 liter Cummins and some of the earlier models got the 3208 Cat. If you end up with one of the Brazilian models you won't ever have to worry about having too much power, but they're dead on reliable and share common parts with other engines. Plus you get to be extra cool because you'll have a column shifter when everyone else has the dash mounted levers.

Re: i want in

hey welcome, great to have you.

I recently bought a 50 chevy, not sure it even matters what you buy.
I know alot of people are brand sensitive I'm a chevy guy but that's what I know, not nocking anybody else ok
hey if you have experience working on a chevy get one, ford, international ect.
The point is that you understand it enough to keep it going!!!!!

I have not started my project yet, there are plenty of guys here that have not bought a bus yet,
no problem.
Just have a plan of action first,
I'm still at the planning stage myself. want to think it through first buy my supplies then attack it.

good luck if I can help let me know

Dale
