Re: DO YOU HAVE A 1990'S BLUEBIRD TC-2000

Got an 89 TC FE 72pass 5.9 AT545 4.33 rear end. Tops at 57mph give or take. Thought it should be better, now that my tranny's blown and I got a new identical one coming, we'll see if it's any better. Runs on straight veggie oil.

Re: DO YOU HAVE A 1990'S BLUEBIRD TC-2000

I got a 91 TC2000 but with a different drivetrain that you have. I have the 5.9 Cummins with an Allison 545 (I think) and 4.33 rear end. It's a great drivetrain, it's powerful and gets decent mileage. When I got it it topped out at an indicated 57mph, I had Jason (fellow skoolie member) turn up the governor and now it goes almost 70mph (indicated) - which I found out with my GPS is 10% slow - so 60=66 70=77 ect...

I'm still confused. Many of us have the TC2000 Front Engine, but I keep thinking there is a TC2000 pusher also. Which is yours, 1993bluebird?

Isn't the pusher the BB All-American?

If only it were that simple. From what I understand so far, All American is a DeLuxe version of TC2000, kinda like Mercury is a fancied up Ford. All American is reported to have more galvanizing and a stronger frame, among other differences. (Important stuff, unlike Mercury over Ford, which generally just gains a toothier grille. )
