So...

Allison 2500 transmission
He's going to send VIN
DT466 was rebuilt at 150,000 (new sleeve?)
Tires are okay, changed once since 2002, he thought about 1/2 tread

I'm going to look at it this weekend, will take pictures of undercarriage. Other suggested photos for this group to look at?

Might wanna check the rear end gear ratio, should be a small plate on it.

Check around the wheel wells for rust. Floor cross-beams too. Date codes on tires (especially the rears which could possibly be retreads). Probably more that I can't think of right now.

Sounds like a good bus.

Thanks.

He did mention some undercarriage rust, but said it hadn't rusted through, to be expected on a Midwest rig.

Ideas on whether $3500 would be a good price (given no major showstoppers) for this bus? Should I counter with a lower offer? So much variance on prices, it's hard to tell, but I think I'm set on the DT466 and less than 200k on the bus.

I guess I missed something about the rust?
Depends on how much rust we're talkin here, but I'd likely move on and start with one that's not rusty to begin with.

I'll take a look and try to get a few good photos, but I would think you'd be hard pressed to find one from 2002 without under body rust? I'll see what it looks like and take pics.

My 92 bought 18 months ago doesn't have any appreciable rust underneath.
Not only does the rust never sleep- it makes it a pita to work on anything.

Cool. I'll assess the amount and go from there. My sister lives in Denver so I might watch the CL there as well.
