that pick

Do what feels right to you..... also that combination is probably the least expensive to buy parts for. ever. anywhere. Now do you think it has what you are looking for. Take it for a drive and feel it out. get the thing checked out by a trusted mechanic.

best I can do...

700r4 in a bus? That would be surprising...


The cons are going to be fuel mileage, lack of power, longevity of the 700r4 (if thats what is in it for sure)...



What size bus are we talking about?



Pros will be cost of maintenance.

That trans wasn't around until 1982 so I'f suggest you have a qualified mechanic go over the whole installation just to be safe.
