bus transmissions at auction

how/who would know how to tell if any of these transmissions would be suitable for a replacement of an AT545?

looks like they came out of RTD denver from behind 60 series detroits.

my bus has the cummins 5.9 paired with an at545.

the auction is for allison B500R series..... is that a 545?

here is the link:

B500R is pretty big. Quite a bit bigger in terms of power handling than an AT545. It is what's in Offgr1d's VanHool with Cummins M11.

My bus has a B300R behind its Cummins ISC 8.3L, which I think is programmed for 250 HP.

I don't have any idea how they compare physically in terms of space required and bell housing pattern, for example.

You might want to bid on one of those Series 60's to put in front of it. Your bus would fly, and you'd have one heck of a doghouse.
