Me too.

I'd love to find a clean 5 or 6 window with a 5.9 and throw an Allison 2000 behind it.

Can the 2000 be used behind a mechanical engine?

I think you're making the biggest mistake you can when looking for a bus.

Yeppers the 1000/2000 can be run behind a mechanical engine.



that 98 may be an ISB. .. if its electronic it should have a J1939 link to use for the Trans.



as for the 5.9, its like a 444E, excellent reliable engine in stock form for a short bus.. a little under-powered in a full-size bus unless you are skilled like rivetboy and pump up your 5.9, they can be made to make lots of power..
