It's funny, quite a number of views but your the only one who thinks this stuff is important enough to save.
This info will pretty much be about the same along all international chassis so you would think...ah...who cares about braking systems.... LOL...

And I made sure to download every one of those. Came in very handy when reducing the size of my wiring harness from a 2" loom to about 1". I've pulled several thousand feet of conductors out.
THANK YOU SIR

Thanks for posting this Ewo1, this is good stuff.

What years does this manual cover? I note your bus is a '99 so if that's the year of the manual I'll have to be careful using it for my '04.

When I have a chance I'll have to have a look at some of the wiring and see if what I have matches the wiring diagram in your manual. That should be a pretty good test.

Some of the subject chapter are dated copyright 1991 so I guess it should be good from about 1990 to at least 2000 maybe 2004?

Most of the stuff should be somewhat generic or I hate to say "Standard" when it comes to the axles and brakes....

For wiring I feel that too is somewhat the same thru ought those years. Best way to find out is to take a look at the "Master Wire List", it should be posted in the Amtran RE wiring diagram thread.

All the wires in the international busses should be 1) color coded and 2) have a number imprinted on them.
With the master wire list you can verify the color, number and wire function. It really makes life a whole lot easier !


I also have an '07 bus with a DT466 that I am going to pull out and rebuild. I feel confident that the wiring scheme should just about be the same as in my '99 bus. Sure there might be 1 or 2 things different but the majority should be good!

This manual should be also good for Genesis busses too!
