if its really a 92 then it would have a 6.9 or 7.3 IDI and not a T-444E, those didnt come out until 94.

most all standard school busses use 2 group 31 batteries connected in parallel.

They're $75 each if you have a Rural King.

Or if you live out west they're closer to $250 each.

I can get blems for $35 from my local mom & pop store. With a one month warranty. A rebuilt one is $100 with a 3 month warranty. $35 batteries are in my future.
I was never a fan of blame until my father in law said the one he had was 2 years old with no issues. I tried one in my lawn mower. I'm sold.

My bus came with a Duracell battery. Impressed? Or does that make this a toy?

Mine is also an 8D. It just happens to be branded and labeled as a Duracell. Didn't come with the bunny.

Just means someone went to a retail battery store instead of a truck battery store.
Computer/internet people tend to buy Duracell. Batteries +
I've had one or two, they were good.
I just buy the cheapest batteries I can find and I've never had any battery problems. But I'm in the Sunshine State, too.
IIRC an 8D is around a buck twenty or so at RK... lemme check. I prefer two 31's, myself. More cca, and much easier to replace.
