International Electrical Harness and Solar Panel NRG

Howdy Folks!

Sean and Nic here from our magic buzz! We are currently in the process of redoing some wacky electrical in a 87 International s series bus and have been searching endlessly for a harness provider—any clues to where we may be able to shop around for an old part such as that?

Also just recently acquired some secondhand solar panels we are looking to hook up to another 12v battery to run all appliances in our bus—any tips to setting all this up in anyones past experience? Let us know! Thank ya! Blessings!

I don't think anyone's making wiring harness kits for school bus conversions.
But the good news is old buses like yours are pretty simple as far as wiring.

Great info from some sharp folks: https://www.solarpaneltalk.com/forum...battery-design

There are a number of stickies in the various forums that make a pretty good "Solar 101".
