Re: 95 IH skoolie........
After the price of the rebuild kit, you will have to add in a new head. One of the valves wasnt very nice to the head. It blows antifreeze out the tailpipe faster than you can put it in.
The bus weighs in around 18,000 pounds. That is alot of scrap. It also has 4 good rear tires with plenty of tread on them. The engine only had 130K on it which is the part that kinda pisses me off. But I have been told that a valve doesnt care when it drops, can be at 100 miles or a 1,000,000 miles. When it goes it goes.
I was on my way back from an IH truck show, where the bus placed second in the Medium duty, street modified class. My scout was on a trailer being towed by the bus when it all went down. After making the decision Monday night, I started ripping stuff and putting on the trailer behind the scout. It made for an interesting sight on the parking lot.
Any one interested in it? Good tranny, rear end, 4 tires, good turbo. Let me know.
