Thanks for all the info....when I first looked at it a year ago nothing was siad about gas (outside of it would be easy to convert), but this time one guy said they put gas in it (hope its not in the sand tanks)..which sounded odd (didn't know you could run both) and I looked at the propane tank (still there) as well as the odd looking carb...after looking around on the net I find its possible to run both gas and propane (should be a switch somewhere) now I need to go look for it..course its still raining here (sounds like soused moose's problem) so I'm still not going out there.
So I decided to limit my fights with the bus to makeing my laptop work...after all its one of the first things going into it...I plan for it to run a backup cam and to monitor engine temps and such as well as carry the raod maps I'll need

The 370 sounds right and I know its stickgod forbide anything going wrong but if the motor dies I think I would rather goback in with a small cat than go back with a ford motor (I like deisel)

You'll be time and money ahead to sell the bus & buy one with a factory diesel.

ok it stopped raining for a few days so I ran out and checked into the bus...its a 1976 ford B-750 with a carpenter body..propane fired but it also has a fuel tank underneith..no idea where the switch is as I couldn't find one...only other thing I could find out was that its got an auto in it..least it looks like it *frown* the lever has 1st, 2nd, 3rd and drive...then nuetrul and rev..explains why I remember shifting.....no info on motor outside of its big..but it doesn't look HUGE like a 460 does.

It seems like I measured the inside last year and it came out to over 30 feet from the drivers seat back.

Fords usually have engine badges on the left side of the grille--more than likely, yours will be "370-2V" or "370-4V" (2 or 4bbl carbuerator on a 370 V. Other possibilities are a 2V or 4V 429.

badges, we don need no stinking BADGES!

well at least mine doesn't have any, nor does it look like it ever did have any *sigh* I may have to go park this beast in front of the local ford dealer and pester the guys in the shop for info on it.
