Engine and trans repower
Last week I visited a guy near Portland. Or. who changed the engine in his 1982 BB bus. The bus was powered by a 6.9 Int. diesel with a 5 speed. The new/used engine is a 5.9 Cummins and an allison auto trans. The Cummins has had the fuel turned up, turbo changed to larger unit, trans shifts modified, intercooler modified, and exhaust piping with removal of muffler. The rear axle gears will be changed to a 4:10 from a 6:30. This bus also has a wood burning stove.
