Talking Hello from Marques Tx

Hi! My wife and I just got a FREE bus from my friend that just wanted it off his land. It is a 1990 International 3700 with the 7.3L automatic trans. It was sitting for 8 years and when I put new batteries in it, it fired up. I then drove it back to my house an hour away going 60 down hill and 40 up hill. We got the floor and seats out and the rust doesn't look bad, no holes as of yet. Im a mechanic but don't know much about these diesel V8s or what the exact trans in it is. I have 2 little boys and one is special needs so the intention is for boy scouting and family vacationing. The demo is going pretty quick with the right tools, and apparently from when i read on here I have some engine upgrading to do. cheers!
