Cost of engine rebuild and tranny rebuild?

What's the average cost of an engine rebuild and tranny rebuild for a diesel powered, dog nose bus? Just trying to get an idea to factor it in my plan in case I find a bus that needs a fresh engine/tranny or end up having to have them rebuilt after it's purchased.

Re: Cost of engine rebuild and tranny rebuild?

Allison will run around $4,000 - $5,000 to rebuild.....

New from factory around $8,000.....
At work we had to replace 2 in one month, both Allison's, the company gave us a deal at $6,000 exchange since we needed 2 of them, sweet of them huh?

Engine really depends on who and where you get it done....
I've heard of sums up to $23,000 for a replacement installed in a motorhome.
Hopefully you won't need to do both the same month, ouch !!!

School bus MIGHT be a little cheaper, since they are older and smaller models. sure hope so.
