Maybe it a over reaction on my side , but I research everything as must as poss before parting with $$ ...
I been reading about the killer dowel pins & it seems some of the 24v 5.9s can have injection pump issues due to low fuel pressure .
I run to ford f350s for work ,,, a 99 7.3 that shows 500k & still runs very well .... I also have a 08 f350 with the 6.4 & I've not been happy at all with it & in fact it's getting sold .

The bus I'm looking at is a 2002 Thomas front engine 5.9 .. Deff not what I set out to buy 1 month ago , I have a dog nose located at a very good price but folks have told me I might regret as its low roof type .
Lets see I guess .... If this snow don't go away I'm never gong to get anything
