1998 TC2000 All Mechanical?

I am looking at a 1998 TC2000 with 12 valve 5.9.


Question: Is there any kind of computer PCM/ECM for this bus?


I see it has the mechanical pump, but wondered if anything is electronic about this bus or not.

electrics on 98 5.9

well you need angry pixies for the shut off solenoid.... IF this engine has what are known as "grid heaters" those are controlled by a electrical circuit of sorts.. and maybe the pump that feeds the injection pump could be electric...

I have a 1995 5.9..... I have converted to a pull rod to shut off the engine. mechanical pump to feed the injection pump. and no grid heaters.... If the engine is warm, and I can make it roll I can bump start it with the clutch...

it does not need electricity. even my gages are mechanical...oil pressure temperature and tachometer.....
