Mercedes rear engine bus. Anyone have one

I am chasing an oil pan for my 4WD conversion and a guru mentioned that the Mercedes 906 or 926 used as a pusher had a shallower pan that might suit.

Has anyone seen a Mercedes pusher in the USA? Any ideas where I might find details.

Wow a reply. I thought posting here was definitely a Hail Mary pass.

What I would like to know how deep it is and how far back from the front it starts to drop down.

When I get back to a computer I will try to markup what I am looking for on a photo.

Thanks

Yes. That was luck. We are on the road and just came out of the boonies for a day. Two hours later and I would have missed your post. All good now. We will go back of the grid in another day.

Do you have a supplier lined up? I think these might me pretty rare.

Probably used out of Europe. I can find 1 for sale used in the USA but no reply to my email.

Kid itís not too much of a pain. A rough measurement of those couple of points and also the width of the pan would be great.

Thanks in advance.

Nice project. I assume that this red beast has the Mercedes and not the 5.9 in your avatar?

The bad or may be good news is that my oil pan looks somewhat different. Maybe better?

The width is 20 to 21 inches.
Let me know if you need more info.
Good luck. Johan

Yeah this one has an OM926 280hp. Sometimes I wish it was a Cummins but the 5.9 would be a little small.

That is excellent. Any chance there is a casting number on there. Or if I PM my contact details could I grab either the engine serial number or VIN number.

Thanks.

Please let me know what you find out. We are pushing g our rig over dirt roads and although I am pretty carefully an accident is easily possible. My mind would be more relaxed knowing a possible replacement oil pan could be obtained if mine meets with a bad stroke of fortune.

We have a 906 the engine # 334521 according some diagnostic scanner. I used to have a picture of it but cannot find it and I remember that I needed several showers and visit to chiro to recover from taking it.
Here is the number on the pan.

ď let me know what you findĒ

So the answer to the search is that I havenít found one so I would suggest you may want to put a guard of that one. Also to buy any of them off Detroit one would need to sell at least 1 kidney.

Haha. New? For sure. Probably would weld on up. But if I see one used for $75 then that would be easier.
