A small block with the block number ending in 010 is a 4 bolt main 350 chevy. And as was mentioned earlier yes it's really a car motor put in a medium duty vehicle. Any intake from that era will fit, it's the big blocks that have interchange problems. If your gonna stay in your neighborhood then that motor will work, gonna run across country it's gonna work the hell out of it. I didn't see where you talked about bus length (weight), that's important on what motor will pull it along. With that "little" motor in it you might not want to go to "high" on your rearend change, there might be a reason that rearend is so low (ratio). If it runs the same RPM whether up hill or down hill you can go up on your rear end, if it slows way down climbing a hill you ran out of power and are maxed out on rear end ratio, in my opinion.
