You will not find a manual to convert a bus from a auto to a standard trans anywhere. You just need automotive back ground knowledge.
You need to learn your entire bus inside out. Learn about your auto trans, what rpm it needs for full band pressure, what model it is, whether it has a locking converter or not, ect.
Learn about the trans fluid to coolant heat exchanger, consider using a external trans cooler, ect.
There is no easy fix here. You need to know everything that makes your bus work.
Or just buy a bus with a standard trans, and wait for the next thing to brake down that you know nothing about.
And be sure to check the things that frank mentioned.
