I think it's for the best. Didn't realize those 4-speeds were still column-shift, though I guess it shouldn't surprise me. I've just never seen or heard of a bus or heavy truck with a column-shift manual. Guess I have NOW... You'd have your hands full with that one if you'd never even driven a three-on-the-tree.

I think that's way too much for something nearly 70 years old with a lot of parts being unobtanium. Let alone the conversion being probably 30 years old.

Cool bus, but no thanks.

It's not $10,000 a cylinder for an inframe on a detroit. It's about $5000 for the whole job. @Busgreasemonkey just did an inframe on his channel if you would like to take a look at what it involves.

That was for other than Scott. I know Scott and have told him he works too cheap. Most places, if you can get them to work on a 2 stroke at all, are waaaaay more then that.

To give an idea of how much mark-up that website charges, and how poor the info given is, I looked at this White 2 years ago in AZ, when it was advertised on craigslist. The asking price back then was $14k, instead of the current $22.9k. The bus hasn't moved since then, and the "recent 200 mile trip" they refer to was in 2015.

$10,000 a cylinder, guess I better raise my prices.

I just bought an in frame overhaul kit for a 1942 6-71. Took a week to get it and was $2500 from the dealer all genuine DD parts. This was liners, pistons,rings, bearings, and all gaskets.

My Dad had a Internationl cabover with a 5 speed on the column. Cabovers were bad enough with sloppy linkage, and a column shift just added to it.

Hi Ronnie!
Obviously you are familiar with this kind of engine. Can you recommend somebody on the West coast that specializes in these oldie engines?
