Also National bus sales had a DT466(E?) w Allison 2000 but I don't see it in the inventory anymore.

Then there is this but its got 305k on the dash:

10456 - aaabussales.com
I found that listing this week too. It's only 100 miles from me but ultimately not what I'm looking for (and too expensive). What exactly are you looking for? I scoured the the depths of the internet this week and found a couple great leads off the beaten path. I'll send them to you if you want.

Send em! I'm looking for something Front engine, mid sized, eventually I want to tow a car/mid size SUV so I'm trying to keep the length down and power up. I want a wheelchair lift for my motorcycle, at the rear or middle is fine, and A/C. That Genesis would be perfect with less miles just haven't seen many. So to be specific: Amtran Genesis, TC2000, International 3800

I finding myself trying to figure what's more important getting a DT466 or avoiding a AT545?

Its way easier to upgrade the trans than it is the engine.

Your right, I'm probably putting too much emphasis on AT545 avoidance.

the AT545 isnt a Bad transmission, its a workhorse.. sure there are better and newer transmissions out there but the AT545 isnt likely to fly apart unless you greatly "enhance" the motor or neglect its filters / temperature..

plus AT545's are everywhere if you do nuke one chances there is someone ready to Give one away!

ha! I probably shouldve snagged it from ya when i was out there.. now that I have 2 busses with 545's... of course there is the secret "ulterior" motive that If i nuke one of the 545's its time to UPGRADE! to a 1000...

the 1000 is a Near direct drop-in for the 545 on DEV.. and id still have 6 gears... i think when I looked at the 2200 the SAE is different as well if I remember right..

CAC makes a kit specially for mechanical engines...

on the new bus..

with my T-444E i could easily use a 2000 series as the existing comouter will run it.. plenty of version of it made to fit the T-444.. I just have to shorten one of the driveshafts.. which is easily done.. (well for me OI take it to my fav driveshaft guy in columbus ohio.. who's been building me custom shafts for years)..

I love little indie shops... usually good work and Honest answers...
my fav engine blocl guy retired.. so i dont know who im gonna use if I have to get a block or heads worked now..
