I'm pretty certain that being a 2006 the engine is actually a C7, production for the 3126 appears to have stopped in 2003.

It looks like that bus had air conditioning, do you still have the air conditioning equipment?

We sold took out the A/C. The bus was going to have rv AC if we would have been able to finish it. I am not sure about the CY. I have to check with my diesel mechanic.

Is the C7 not a 3126? The C7 was intoduced in 03, the only real difference between it and the 3126 is the valve train configuration. Other than that, it's the same engine, they just no longer used the 3126 designation.

From what I understand they are very similar but do have a couple of relatively minor fuel system changes. The injectors design changed making them more difficult to remove. They also got a calibration file, meaning the ECM needs to be reprogrammed when you replace an injector. The later oil pumps, which I think were also found on the late 3126s, also tended to fail more catastrophically and wipe out the injectors.

Not huge differences, but I feel significant enough to take note of.

I like the paint job. Whatís the insulation situation here? What work have you done on the bus besides paint, and laying in the subfloor and framing? Inquiring minds are going to want to know...

Love the pain job, really good lookin.
Not so much the cat engine though....
Wonder if 6th gear is really unlocked... Allison 2000 or 3060?
I'm not looking to buy I just love to look.

What a shame.

That is a gorgeous bus but you have two strikes against you. No A/C and the C7. If you haven't already, try posting on the skoolie Facebook pages. It seems that folks are more flexible and have deeper pockets, when it comes to bus buying, than many of the members here.
