I am re-powering a 1956 FLX VL 100 (ok its not a skoolie) that was converted by Angola Coach in 1970.
It started life with a DD 6-71 and Roadranger , but in 1974 the MD that bought wanted to be shiftless , so went to CAT , for a new engine & Allison Automatic tranny.
The dealer installed a CAT 1160 , this is the daddy to the 3208 , except it has factory liners so is not a throwaway.
The package with 6 speed Allison runs just fine and produces 10mpg , according to the last owner.
The package has 150,000 miles since brand new , and comes with the shift control tower and is totally mechanical, so a snap to install.NO computer to puzzle out , just a throttle cable to shorten.
I have both factory engine and tranny books which are included.
The engine is still in the VL, located in Arcadia Florida in fine running condition and the VL has plates , so a test ride to hear and see just how nice the package runs is EZ... Till about July 4 2 009.
This setup is 210HP and as a 3208 is fairly common in many Skoolies , so the swop/upgrade would be a drop in.
You get the entire setup ready to install, bring a trailer.
Price is $4000 for everything , but I'm open to an interesting trade (but not another bus) , so lets DEAL!
