Re: Engine size in a 1994 IHC?

I need the bus where I'm working so I've got no buddies here. I work 400 miles from home; that is why I need the bus. I need a cheap place to stay. Also I work 60 odd hours per week besides trying to get home every other weekend to make sure someone hasn't taken up residence in my bed other than my wife Life is a little wild for me these days.
I am waiting for a call from a guy with a 92 Ford hi-top not far from here; so I think I've got the bus thing covered. He needed to get it in the shop and clean it up a bit, change the oil and grease it. He should be calling this week.
An IH would have been nice, so too, would have been a Cummins. This ford 6.6 will do nicely with the hi-top and standard 5X2. Not a lot of power but I never travel the I-state anyway. I'm more about economy than power. My diesel car doesn't even have a turbo and I love that thing.

Re: Engine size in a 1994 IHC?

After I read this I realized how crazy it sounded . . .but ya . . I'm in the oil field things are a little wild a woolie up here. The part about my wife I just threw in there for good reading. She'd have me by the short hairs if she read it!!
The guy with the bus in Rugby, ND called and the bus is ready so I'll wander over this weekend and give it a closer look.

<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<I see, on the left, I'm almost there<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
