B3400 anyone build one?

Im going to look at a super low mileage international B3400 6 window. Its a unique looking machine, and were looking forward to our family adventures in a skoolie modified just for us. Anyone have experience with this chassis? Its got a t444e, and im fairly familiar with the old 7.3 stroker, so its a pretty good choice for me. I do NOT know what trans is in it. Im hoping not a 545, but i plan on installing a monster of a trans cooler regardless of what trans is in there. We'll be adding bunks for the kids, and a hitch to tow our fun machines. Thanks in advance!

I am dubious of low mileage claims on International buses in particular as the dashes love to fail on them.

If you give us a year we could give you a fairly decent probability of what transmission you have in it. Best to crawl underneath and get the Allison transmission serial #

Its a 2000. It was purchased new by a kinder-type private school and shows 66k with 5k hours on the clock currently.

Pretty much guaranteed to have a 545 in it, get the VIN and call the international dealer and they can tell you which transmission and rear end are in it
