Greetings and thanks for having me! Buying a 1991 international school bus tomorrow and need help with some ID and tech info. Its a dt466 engine and 5 speed manual transmission, but i have no idea what the trans is, so i cannot search for the shifter bushing itl need. It also has 5 lug Dayton style wheels and disc brakes, wanting to swap to 10 lug if possible. Please helpppp!!!

Thanks man! Trying something a little different, well i beleive its different. Plant to remove entire body and feont end, building a cab over that strongly resembles a HEMTT with 24.5 steelies and a western hauler type bed. Let me know what ya thing. Sorry for the upside-down pic. First one is of the actual bus, second is the plan

I keep discovering new computer Stuff that everyone else on the planet consider mothers-milk basics.

But wasn't that image in a program that can easily flip it?

Anyhoo... Welcome!

Dayton wheels are bad news. Are you buying this beast dirt-cheap?

Of course, a 466 with stick....

Why do you believe the transmission needs some sort of bushing?

I was thinking of a 10 lug hub swap, or to fill and drill 24.5 steelies for the 5 lug pattern. Kindof excited, still researching; its a dt466c, supposed to be better in many ways than the 2 previos gens. The shifter is sloppy. Shifts firmly into gear, but i can tap the shifter on the side and itd swing 3 inches to the other side... i dont have much experience (or any really) on heavy duty applications, but i know that my mustang, jeep, and pickup all shifted nice and firm, with no wobble, after replacing the nylon bushing(s)

In order to swap Dayton spoke wheels for 10-hole Budd wheels you are going to have to swap wheel ends at the minimum and more than likely complete axle assemblies.

There is no way you can get a 10-hole Budd wheel reconfigured to attach to a set of spokes. Not only are the studs on the spokes not stout enough to directly attach wheels directly to the spokes but the weight of the bus would be riding on just those studs and not on the spokes themselves.
