I have lots, LOTS of bus parts, and advice

My name is Patrick young. I have owned about 100 Gilligs, Crowns, Fords, Waynes, Internationals, Thomases, I've lost count. Also 5 fire trucks, vehicles raning from 1954 Crown to 1990 Crown. All types of engines, even gas Hall Scotts.

I have a huge inventory of parts, and a good mental inventory and network of folks to help rare parts get found, how to get repairs done cheaply, I been doing this stuff for 17 years.

You need a part, or some advice, just give me a ring.

What does the designation "kornbinder" mean? Pre electronic? Or specially made for ag equipment?

(Might be able to find one)

Just a slang term for IH. Correct, the new generation 466, just before they went electronic. Even if one needs a rebuild. Just want one that's mostly complete, but I'm in no real rush.

Re: I have lots, LOTS of bus parts, and advice

Patrick: I've got a 1980 Gillig 636 Cat 3208; In the rear drivers side near the bumper is an electric connection under a weather cover. When I tried to trace it, it appears to go to the transmission line and/or coolant line. I assume this is a block\coolant (+- transmission) heater? Assuming this is correct, is it 110v or 220v?
Thanks!! Dave

Love my Gillig. My 636 has the storage basement; lots of room for water, waste, propane, storage etc etc. It has an Allison 643 auto, which is easy to drive, but tends to want to go fast down hills. Just completed it's first 3+ weeks working Burningman.

as far as power goes....i've had quite a few setups in the 4 jacuzzi buses i've created. I think the best setup i used is this:

Large 24 volt inverter....at least 2000 watts
add a 24 volt alternator and a bank of batteries in series to make 24 volts

24 volt systems have significant advantages over 12 volt systems when it comes to high amperage applications like a large inverter. Voltage is not the limiting factor when it comes to alternators, it's Amperage. An alternator making 100 amps @ 12 volts only makes half the kw of the same alternator making 24 volts @ 100 amps. amps=heat. The components in an alternator can only handle a certain amount of heat/amps.

this system also allows you to keep your stock alternator/electrical system separate from the house system. In the event that the stock alternator fails, you can always "tap in" to the house system to temporarily run the stock bus systems.
