Got a bus.

I just got my bus home. Now the work begins. I was told it has the MT643. I dont know how to tell. I dont have a oil pan on the tranny, so cant find a sensor.

Yours looks like it's in the 2000's I think they dropped the MT643 and put in the MD3060 sometime in the late 90s. Is your tranny control push button or a manual selector?

If its push button then its a 3060.

Nice bus, its virtually the same thing I started out with on Roll Your Own. I love that air ride, I couldn't do without it now!
How tall are you? I'm 5'10 and couldn't do with the factory ceiling height.
