    We got our manual from eBay. It's a general purpose manual for a range of different size International engines for buses and tractors. Beware, though, some of the torque specs printed in the manual are off. The manual had info about the engine, oil, and coolant systems, but not about the chassis/axles/rest of the bus.

    Our three cats stay indoors all the time. Two belong to Dan, and he is a mama worry wart and his cats have never been outdoors and would not be able to protect themselves. My cat was a stray and would be fine outside, but she decided she doesn't want anything to do with that now that she lives the good life! At Skooliepalooza we met a lot of bus folks with indoor/outdoor cats who roamed even when there were lots of off-leash dogs. If you're concerned, I'd say a GPS collar would definitely be a great investment. Maybe some training as well. For instance, a month before you start traveling have the cats live in the bus (a lot of people do this with the family too, to get used to it) and then at night when you call them in make sure to give them lots of treats. That way they will be more likely to come when you call.

    I am very interested to know how you all fare with multiple animals? We are going on the road with two adults, two kids (8&10) and three cats. The cats are indoor outdoor, mostly outdoor if the temp is above 50. They stay close to the house for the most part and generally know to come in at night. Though at times they like to hunt at night, so we have to go calling for them, lol. Specifically we are wondering if it makes sense to get some kind of pet tracking device for them, in the event that we do need to jump and cannot get them to come inside, we can go locate them with GPS lol. Thanks for the great posts. Your build thread is great!

    I think the bus I just bought is the same/similar to yours. Do you have a source for operator's and service manuals for the bus/motor/trans? 1993 International/Thomas with DT360 and Allison trans. We are driving the bus from PA to CA in a few weeks. Anything I need to keep an eye on?

    She's pretty good with her horns and doesn't headbutt people but she's not afraid to butt a cat, dog, or pop-up camper if they look at her wrong!!!

    I built a "goathouse" at a farm that is on Woodstock rd in Odessa Fl. they do therapy horseback riding for handicapped. I cant imagine having a goat in my bus. they hooked there horns in the leg of my shorts constantly. You guys crack me up.

    I have no idea, but I was told that since half of the engine sits inside the bus, you can do a complete engine rebuild without ever having to remove the engine. I'm not sure if that's true on other International inline-6 buses with the regular dog-nose or not.

    what is the purpose of a "pug nose" bus? is it that they are looking for max capacity in the shorter wheel base? and why not just go with a flat front like the all american? never understood why they made them. we don't have any in Montana but i have seen them at day care shoals and some of the southern states.
