Engine size in a 1994 IHC?

I've not seen the bus yet but if everything checks out this is probably the one I'm going to spring for if we can come to an agreement on price. The question I have about this bus is the engine size. The guy says it is a 406 Navi. Is he reading this wrong and it is a 466; or is a 406 an engine they made in this era? If so; what kind of rep. does it have?
Thanks again guys,

dt408 is probably what it is. Not as common as the dt466, but still a good engine.

I love school bus ads that are complete.



School bus.
Diesel.
Automatic.
I'm not going to tell you the miles but know that it's just barely broken in.
Diesels are known to go millions of miles even with no oil changes or service. Just sprinkle some fairy dust...LOL

Re: Engine size in a 1994 IHC?

I called to set up a time to look at this bus and it is sold.
So the look continues. There is always the IH 3800 from
the bus dealer in Webster SD. Problem is then I've got to
get it and my car back to ND 400 miles away. That is my
ace in the hole for now. I tried to get them to transfer it
to their other outlet in Bismark ND; nothing doing unless I
pay a transport fee of 1.45 per mile. So for now I threw
my hand in on that deal.

Can you take a Greyhound to pick up the bus? Or give a buddy gas a few bucks?
