1969 C/50 Ward Skoolie
First let me confess to my Newbie status on this forum, so please take pity on me. So I really want to drive this on the interstate (cruising speed of 65 mph), but not sure if the 292 L6 w/4 speed is the right combo for this. I'm thinking the lack of an OD trans will be the problem here, but don't have enough experience with medium duty trucks to say for sure. I'd like to keep it a manual transmission, but not sure if there is a good OD manual trans out there that will bolt up to the 292 (provided it has enough power in the first place). The bus has a GVWR of 19,500# with a single axle, single speed rear end. So let me know what you folks think, any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks!
