New member - 86 International S1800 9.0
Just came across this web-site, kudos to whoever thought it up. I have been in the process of converting my "white whale" only for a short time, but things are coming along smoothly. Getting a lot of good ideas from reading all the various posts.
If anyone needs a service manual for an International Bus with a 9.0 and AT545 tranny (not a real popular combo judging from several posts I've read here) I have a service/operator manual in pdf format that is about 17 megs in size. It covers anything and everything about this vehicle (from a total rebuild to fixing the fiberglass). If you want it, and your email server can handle a 17 meg file, let me know and I'll ship it out. It's acutally a military manual for a firetruck of some sorts but its all the same in the end.
I have been pleased with my 9.0, good mileage for a diesel and it has enough get-up and go for me to cruise at 60 on the highways. This was a previous US Navy bus, so I don't think they did any mods on it. I have all the maintenace records since she was a pup and with only 82K miles for $1300 bucks, I think I got a good deal.
Looking forward to being a part of the board.
