Re: List of Bus Yards & Graveyards

One thing about Acme is they guaranty their motors. They actual do a partial teardown to check out the motor. After that, they run it on a dyno. I know that doesn't mean a whole lot for the skoolie crowd, but if I had to buy a motor for a truck I used to put food on the table, that would be the way to go.

Re: List of Bus Yards & Graveyards

I'm still going to tear into it. They may not warranty it in a drag racing Super Duty . Yes, I'm slipping a DT466 in a 99 Super Duty F250. I have to do a few things like o-ring the head, port it, and install head & main studs, but that's mainly it for the inside. I guess that's not much on topic.....sorry.

Re: List of Bus Yards & Graveyards

Definitely want to see pictures. I like pictures. I have a DT466 in my Intl rated at 210hp. Where can I find info on getting a few more horses without doing anything crazy or expensive? I'm sure you've already looked into the subject.

Re: List of Bus Yards & Graveyards

I made a little post on the how-to section about just that. There's also a link in my signature. You have the best version of 466 to modify. It uses a fuel plate just like the ones they use in the 94-98 Dodge/Cummins. It'll be a whole new animal after you slide the fuel plate, & make a couple other adjustments. I sent you a PM.
Oh, and the pix of my lack of progress:

Re: List of Bus Yards & Graveyards

While there may be many things I have put my fingers into and on, a fuel injection pump is not one of them. I'm a little worried about screwing it up. You're local to me. Do you mind if I send you a PM?

There's a couple more of a Ford 7.8 that "somehow" lost the muffler:

Re: List of Bus Yards & Graveyards

I'd like to second the shout out for Zia Bus Sales, in Albuquerque, NM. I also got my 1985 6 window Wayne/Lifeguard IHC bus from there and i love that place. I used to go there on weekends and just play around and day dream in their buses on site, and they have a full garage for doing repairs. They also had this sweeeet 20's or 30's restored bus in there, absolutely beautiful! I even took a girlfriend of mine who also was a skoolie enthusiast there!
