Re: maybe

I don't think it's taller. We have fat kids here in California, so the law requires 12" opening. More to come. Oh yea, rear air suspension.

Re: maybe

So here's the one really bad part. CNG
I am searching for a motor. It has a John Deere 6.8 CNG motor with less than 12K on a fresh
rebuild. It's sooo smooooth and very quite. But the tanks have expired so they can't be filled.
This is one really nice bus. It has less than 43k original miles, no really. Not like the other one I bought
from that scumbag used car saleman.

Re: maybe

I have no idea, but with the amout of work that would take I would rather put a Cummins 8.3 or a Cat 3208. First choice is the Cummins. Priority given to the cheapest.

Re: maybe

cant you just have the tanks recertfied? or in worst case, put new ones in. But this bus can not be old enough that you shouldnt be able to have them recertified. For sure cheaper and less expensive then going through the whole conversion.

Re: maybe

New tanks are between $18000 and $25000 dollars US. That's right kiddies. I don't know about recertifying, that was something I was going to look into. But I will still only have a 100-200 mile range.
