    Howdy George...Most all of the post war buses I have seen will accommodate a 6BT. The issue with the frames on the pre-war & war era rigs is that they narrow WAY down in front. I had to set my 4BT back almost 24 inches just to clear the frame rails. But the only way to know for sure is to run some tight measurements. Good luck and while I think it is likely doable, let me know what you discover.

    Hi Tango, I live in Florida USA. I have a couple of short buses, a 55 Ford B500 3 window, and a 54 Chevy 4500 3 window. Both have Wayne bodies. At the moment, I am looking for a newer engine for the Chevy, which has the original 261 in there. I was going to put a Cummins 5.9 in there, but rethinking the whole thing after seeing how far you had to set your 4BT back behind the firewall. How many inches did you have to move the 4BT Cummins back? Is there any hope of putting a 6BT in there? Thanks, George

    Hello Tango, I'm new to the site. Very interesting build you have going. I have a friend that has a '46 like yours that he wants to sell. I don't know much about the bus. Will be visiting it soon. Can I assume $2500 is a fair price? Thanks for the help.
