There is a book, that can be had in CD form, called "The Bus Direct Pages," located, through this site's link, called "Conversion Books" (links are located on the home page).

This is a yellow pages of parts dealers, whether new or used. The cost is $19.95 for the CD, or $24.95 for the book. BTW, shipping is extra and I think it's still $7.00 for one book or 100.

I do not work or have anything to do with them financially, I'm just a satisfied customer that bought a couple of books from them (this was when Ben still owned it).

I hope this helps,

Roasting

Thanks for the tip, where ever I get a list or links I plan on testing them before using them or printing them out, for example call and ask to see if some basic parts are available like a brake drum, king pin, trans seal, rear axle bearing, try to get a feel what they are... I dont want to learn all this whilst setting in a parking lot where they towed my bus hehe

Thanks again.

Anybody else?

Oops, I forgot to mention, RV-Conversion has a satisfaction garrantee on books, not CDs.

So, if the book doesn't do it for you, just send it back for a refund.

My experience with NAPA is that they also carry the drums, kingpins, etc as long as they aren't a podunk store and you don't have something odd like an M-H front axle on a 4wd bus.

The beauty of NAPA is their supply and distribution system even in podunk they have the ability to locate parts and tell you when they can get them, they can also be a great source of information about other local options. Cat, Cummins and IH guarantee next day delivery of parts if you pay for shipping. The most important thing is to remember that our skoolies are Medium Duty Trucks when it comes to the mechanicaql side of things.
