'98 BB partially converted Pusher-not running

Hello to all (I was MIA for a bit due to changing my email and not updating my contact info, sorry about that....)
We recently moved across country, and I was using this bus as a moving van. Due to a failing PS pump and multiple overheat episodes, I killed the 8.3 Cummins powerplant.
The bus is in Grandview, WA, 40 miles from Yakima. It will reluctantly run, but I'm sure it has scored cylinder walls/scuffed pistons/stuck rings. It will need slugs and liners at least.
It has, as noted, an 8.3L Cummins with a BRAND new turbo. near new tires all around, 5 speed Allison, 5 stage retarder, 100W solar panel with charge controller, good batteries (3 8D's as I recall), winter package with insulated walls and ceiling. Flooring was insulated with 1/2" foam board and decked with 1/2" OSB. 60 gal fresh water tank, 110V dorm fridge, underbody LP tank plumbed to a RV 4 burner range/oven and radiant LP heater. Shore power cord connected to a small RV AC distribution center with one AC plug and DC converter. Re-titled as a motorhome with a clear Colorado title.
The bus will have to be towed. I MAY be able to assist thru AAA up to 100 miles.
The rig is in a tow company storage area, and needs to be moved soon. The tow company has been super helpful and has a lowboy trailer, and can haul it, depending on their (or your) schedule.
This is an awesome deal for someone. Tires alone are worth 1200 bucks.
email me at 1reddog48@gmail.com, call or text 970-596-2438.
I will do my best to keep this thread updated. I'd like to see it go within a couple weeks at the most.

Thanks for looking!

Sorry to hear about your troubles.

Do you have an asking price in mind?

Tell us more about the condition and details on the tires?

Thanks

Thanks for the looks and interest, but looks like it's been sold! And sorry I did not post the asking price. I sold it for 1500.

Asking price is 1500. Tires are several
Years old, but 90% tread and zero cracks.

Hey Reddog,

How old are they? My idea of"several" may not be the same as yours ��

Thanks

New buyer looks tomorrow, I'll keep the thread updated.
PNW Steve, I'm not at the bus, so I can't pull the date code off the tires, but I'm guessing less than 5 years old.
