The guy told me it "has a 350 with 4 bolt main"
Hmmm I'm not going with that because other this have been "curber" sales talk. A C60 came with a 366, it has a 2 barrel intake, 1 single battery, none factory propane system, 10 bolt Rear axle, 5 bolt front hubs, "milk jug" radiator overflow tank, looks like interior panels mostly screwed in place where the exterior panels have different types of rivets. The floor behind the wheel wells is roten. I was told the brakes are hydraulic, the lines from the master cylinder are rusted and I did not see a booster.
All gauges are imperial, they show readings not sure if they are accurate. The automatic gear selector is right in my left knee. I might look into moving it.

"I'm home" I had to fill the propane tank (50 gal) 3 times to get home. The price for propane ranged from a high of 1.159 ltr to .589 ltr. A ltr is equal to 0.264172 US gal. Also on the way the "Y" pipe broke, had to open the windows to drive it. Can you say noisy.

So that works out to about 38.5l/100km (6.1mpg)? That's not so bad for a propane bus engine. I would have expected worse

If you can hit all those stops that are $0.58/litre then you'll be laughing!

Try looking for id numbers on the engine block. 😣 block might have been "decked". My signal lights stopped working few blocks from home. Need to look into wiring diagram. Took a look behind switch panel, nothing labeled, it will be.

Anyone know a good resource for the wiring of a 1974 C60 blue bird?

As hard a time as I've had with that in the past, I can commiserate. Adventure aint really the word!
