Re: Where did you get your bus.
LOL could have been!
Actualy the story goes that they took a church trip to Denver for whatever reason and on the trip back home eastbound bucking a Kansas headwind lugging the motor at 30 mph in 5th gear after a big bang, it developed a bad miss. One of the mechanically inclined folks worked on it and determined it to have no compression in one of the cylinders. SO they decided the bus was worthless and dad bought it from the church for next to nuthin. Well, he yanked the motor and dropped in a fresh 350 4 bolt main out of a rollover Jeep. I remember seeing the smashed air filter and something on the carb was broken. Anyway, Dad and I pulled off the pan and found pieces of metal in there which turned out to be a broken up piston. And this is NO LIE the connecting rod had flopped over and wrapped around the rod opposing it. Yes stuff was banged up and chewed up really bad and there was a chunk missing from the outside of the cylinder wall that lost the piston. But the thing STILL RAN!!!
