    Hi there Cadillackid! I just saw that you were also in Columbus, OH and thought I’d reach out and ask if you knew of any places here in the city to park a 35ft Bluebird TC2000? I started gutting it in the last couple weeks and have been asked to move it by the end of the month. I’ve got some lines out but would love to hear from someone with some more experince than myself! Cheers

    Got a question for you. Would a 3060 computer off a C7 with a 3060 be compatible with my 3060 on the DT? If so, the 05 could be programmed and put into my 99. Could the DT ecm work on the 05 as a swap?

    Hi Cadillackid,
    I'm David. If you're into craft beer perhaps you know this bus? (It was Brewdog's)

    Anyway I'm super new to skoolies and still very new to Columbus -- I'm in Galloway. Not sure what direction we're gonna go with this thing, but the first step is to get it running and driving...
    You mentioned in a post here somewhere about School-bus junkyards. Are there any junkyards around here you recommend for that? Due to the spaypaint I need all new taillights and some other hardware and then there's the rust on the engine accessories...

    Appreciate any local insight you can give me!

    Good Evening, not to bother you, just wondering if you were able to find those wiring diagrams, thank you

    Hi Christopher, we spoke a few years back about adding the Silverleaf VMSpec Engine readout to get additional data from our buses. I have an International DT466E but am not finding that specific engine listed when doing the initial programming. As a matter of fact I'm not seeing any International engines to choose from. What engine do you have in your bus and what choice did you make to a similar one if yours was not listed like mine is not?

    I'm looking to purchase my first bus and this one looks very promising, but I've got cold-feet. You were recommended for advice - I'd be very grateful for your thoughts on this bus:

    1992 Navistar International DTA 360 diesel engine 5.9L in line 6 cyl. 5 speed manual transmission. 55,400 miles. Body model: Carpenter SB-2508. Wheelbase 218, 59 passenger, 30' long. They're asking $2,650

    Loving your tech solutions that you offer people and the knowledge you have about the engine diagnostics.
    once I get closer to the drivers compartment I'm sure I'll be picking your brain a bit here and there..

    I wish there was an easier way to track threads started by users... if there is I haven't found it

    If I pull the fuel filter off the DT466 and crank the motor, should there be pressurized fuel coming out there?

    Damn, you turned up ol red? did you just drop in a chip or did you do the injectors too? cost?

    Thanks for the advice on the 2008 !.....I'm waiting to see what engine / transmission it has. It has about 120,000 miles and has been nicely converted ...just had a complete brake package $15000 Canadian. I've heard the Ford 6.0 litre diesel is one to avoid on mini buses.....but that the gas ones are mostly OK. Personally I like the size of the mini buses better as a newcomer ( I'm 56 but not technically competent....I'm an artist )....I see one 2003 E450 superduty with a 7.3 diesel that maybe sounds better? ( also about 115,000 miles.....$11,000 Canadian ) .......the real time saving being that an already-converted bus registered as RV would save me a ton of time and money since Ontario only insures RV's.

    Thanks so much for your notes of wisdom and experience !
