Thanks for the good wishes everyone, I am in the slow recovery mode so things are moving positively along.

I called engine re-man company and per information from Reviva, the re manufactured engine was a complete drop in including turbo, done in 2007, when the bus had 167,295 miles, we just went out to the bus and checked the exact mileage, the bus has 195,409 miles on it at this time. The only engine has 28,114 miles on it.

Serial # of re manufactured engine is #830265, re manufactured by Reviva, part #61F4D250BR.

here is a link that explains what is included in a complete drop in engine package

61F4D250BR by REVIVA - Cummins 1994-98, 8.3L, 250HP, Bus, HMRO, Rear Sump, Drop-In

This engine has less than 30,000 miles on it.
obviously it is not a brand new engine but check out just the price of that engine if you purchased it today $11,000
The engine alone as a core charge is almost $3,000

Parts Included

Long Block Supreme

Turbocharger
Exhaust Manifold

Nat, I see you have been on this forum a long time and are one of the more active members; if I could get your input as to what you think is fair for purchaser and seller for a value this bus should be marketed at?

I welcome input from anyone as long as they have read all the description and taken an honest look at pictures and provide how they came to the final price range.

Thanks in advance
Cliff
