The engine is a ford 460 7.5 liter gasoline. I was hoping for a diesel but it turned out not to be, oh well. The rear axles are dual then single tag. The tag axle has an electronic brake and auto leveling air spring installed, sounds great but I fear it just more to break down later!
Day 1, we got the seats removed and started on the rear heater. My daughter is my bus buddy, not many teenagers would want to spend their weekend working on dirty old bus with their dad! She got the bug, I'm so proud!
At the end of day 2 we completed removal of the AC unit, rear heater, and ceiling.
When I was under the bus removing the heater lines, I noticed the floor is plywood straight through. Looks like I'll be ripping it all out and installing sheet metal before laying a subfloor. The upside is it'll be easier to paint the frame. I was thinking on using Por-15. I've had great luck with their products on past projects.
