2010 cummins

I'm looking at a 2010 Thomas with a Cummins. It has 183,000 miles. I assume it's the 8.3. It's on an auction and when I called of course I couldn't talk to the maintenance man they gave me the principal. Anyway, because it's from a school they are required to do inspections every 90 days, so I am pretty confident it's been well taken care of. I just don't know much about the 8.3 and what kind of emissions it will have from the year 2010.

I don't plan on putting a ton of miles on this bus. Just transporting the Boy Scout troop to campouts and a high adventure trips every other year.

Not sure, but I think a 2010 bus is a lot more likely to have a 6.7.

What kind of bus? The only Thomas that had the isc was the rear engine'd transit, so if it's a conventional or front engine transit, it's got the 6.7. Even an RE transit would more then likely have the isb over the isc.

Regardless, in 2010 any bus would have had the full gamut of emissions devices(DPF,SCR, and EGR) installed. All first generation devices too, so you'll very likely have reliability and repair issues with it, at least we did on all the first gen units. They seemed to have gotten the bugs worked out on the emissions by about 2015 or so.

Seeing as you'll be driving this instead of parking it, I'd go with something else. Either pre-emissions(2004 or so) or after 2015. If you must go in that time period, avoid anything built by international. JMO

It is a front engine. It has all that stuff on it.
