Post I have Repair Manuals and Info for Thomas Saf-T-Liner MVP buses

Hi,

After doing a lot of searching online for wiring diagrams, I found a bunch of useful info for these buses. The main site I found info on was this:

Index of /tbb

It is a fairly weird site, as it shows up on Google as a site where you'd find dogs or something. But this page has PDFs of all aspects of the bus, wiring diagrams, repair manuals, for front and rear engined MVP buses. So you can download PDFs of it there, but I compiled a collection of docs from here and elsewhere specific to the MVP-ER buses with the CAT 3126b engine and Allison MD3060 trans (all Montgomery county MD buses are this and I know there are a number of these on this site).

Link to the docs I have:

https://drive.google.com/folderview?...Vk&usp=sharing

This includes:

Wiring Schematics for everything, including CAT engine
Front and Rear Axle servicing procedures
Front and Rear Suspension servicing procedures
General service intervals and specifications
Air Brake service procedures and general info
Steering system info and maintenance
Allison WTEC III transmission service, troubleshooting and operating manuals
Older and newer Allison 3000 and 4000 series manuals

It isn't excellently organized, but it is a bit more straightforward. The notagz link also has dozens of PDFs of recall and TSB info for various bus models. I didn't include these in my documents.

Let me know if you need any additional info or documents, or have some that I left out!

Nice, I'm searching for International 3900 info/manuals. All I've found yet are had copies on Ebay for hundreds of dollars.

This is awesome! I've been printing away. Now, just need some dividers and a gigantic binder for it. Thanks!

Here's the Webasto Operating Manual if you need it...

That site didn't do anything for me. It resolved to www-notagz-com,tbb, (munged on purpose). Going to the root URL just got an "Under Construction" graphic. Anybody else do better?

Good to hear from you, Porkchop.

It's not working for me either. Is there any chance you could check that the links are still good? I'd really love to get my hands on that manual.

Looks like the site I posed where those are is down. If you want the manuals, send me a PM, I have them all saved locally.

I can get to the google docs now, it already paid off because I now know how to find the fault codes!

Thanks!

Thomas bus manuals

Porkchop,

Help! I've just bought a 95 Thomas ER6CTA with a Cummins 8.3.

I attempted to find the website "Index of /tbb" without success.

I'd appreciate your giving me any additional info on where I can find manuals for my bus.

Anybody know where I can find Operation and Maintenance manuals for my 2001 Thomas MVP RE, Serial # 1T7HR3B2511098756? It has a Cummins 5.9 Turbo with MD3060 Alison transmission and air brakes.
