wow I doubt I do, but that was what i paid for it... it wasnt cheap, the dealer should give you the part number for it.. i dont think theres a ford cross for it as it didnt appear to be on the fords when I looked at their belt routing..

ill see if by chance i shoved the work order in the dash cubby.. (I suck at paperwork so I usualy domnt save my service orders).. the bus is in its storage unit, ill go over tomorrow and see if its in there.. be sure to get the right number of grooves.. apparently they made pully in a couple versions.. first time the garage got mine it was the wrong one.. had to go back and get a different one.. by grooves I counted the Valleys in the pulley and not the ridges..

the belt tensioner I believe is the same one as the ford. but hers didnt seem like it was bad, I replaced mine at one point when I was having compressor issues but it wasnt bad.. that pulley feels a little stiff to turn when its normal.

this is one that appears to be available at my home autozone.. autozone you have to finagle their site.. as they dont have school busses listed but the 4700 truck is a good shot at engine parts.. this one says its 8 groove.. my bus isnt here so I cant count the ridges ion the belt or valleys in the pulley..

maybe an autozone near you has one and you can compare it to sandi's?

She's in Orlando anyhow, and they have her part on a ticket with her name.
Sandi- you can pick up that pulley at Maudlin International on monday anytime between 7am-11pm. The south location off Michigan.
call or text and I'll get you their number.

You're not the type of person the police profile.
If I got stopped in your bus, IDK how bad it could go but I'd imagine they could tow your bus.

IMHO, you are extremely foolish, because most likely you DO NOT have valid insurance. The insurance card may get you by when the cops pull you, but in an accident your insurance company will deny any claim on an unregistered vehicle.

My insurance covers my bus, and did before I registered it.
You can insure a vehicle that isn't even yours.

Check with your company, they will gladly sell you a policy, whether they cover you or not when you have an accident with no registration is a different matter. If I have your VIN number I can get a policy on your bus, so there are 2 policies? Might want to check that also. Normally you have to have an "Insurable interest" in the vehicle, which means you have to own it.

"Most auto insurance providers require that you own a car to place it on your policy and insure it. This is called having insurable interest in the vehicle."

There are exceptions, but trying to rationalize Wanderwoman situation is pushing it. I would be willing to bet money she would not be covered in the event of an accident. you have to remember Insurance companies are in the business of making money and will find every little excuse to not pay out on a claim if they can get away with it. I was recently in a rare end accident. 82YO man ran in the back of me, told his insurance that I hit him. I asked if they read the police report showing him at fault. They said they had , but were standing behind their clients claim, WTF. Had to sue him and got screwed again when he showed up with his Allstate attorney and the judge dismissed the case due to no evidence. WTF, how about the big dent in the back of my truck and the damage to the front of his Escape. There is no justice anymore.

All insurance is is a piece of paper making it legal for you to drive.
As long as the VIN is the VIN that's insured, what's the problem?
I've had a policy on someone's vehicle that I didn't own. And they had their own. I've done it. But I'm not in GA, thank goodness.

In Texas some companies now sell "non-owners" liability insurance

Yep. There are those.
My fiancee has a non-owners policy to drive my Subaru Crosstrek.
God we hate that car. Can't mention the car without mentioning what a total turd it is.
