Any Crown bus owners on this board?

Looking for any Crown bus fans to swap stories and parts. My Crown bus is a 1968 exschool bus. It is currently powered by a Cummins 220hp.. No turbo and not much power. I am preparing to up grade the engine with a 425hp Cummins BC4 and an Allison auto trans. There are lots of changes to be made.
I'm never too busy to chat. Frank in Idaho

Since you've had no replys... I wish I had a Crown! When we were in CA the last couple of weeks my head was on a swivel looking around to see if there were any Crowns for sale anywhere (cheap). No luck.

Hey Frank-

Have you noticed Crown parts getting even MORE scarce now thinks to the legislation in California that's taking them off the road? As I understand it a school can get the full cost of a new bus reimbursed by the state, but they must give up the old Crowns to do so and they must go straight to the crushers...no chance of even pulling good parts off.

Leave it to CA to mess up a good thing. When I was in Ferndale I talked to the guys at the bus garage and they said CA has mandated going to seat restraints. I'm curious what that's gonna do because they said seating capacity was gonna go way down.
