...will be buying my first bus (7 or 8 window) in 8-12 weeks or so, and have a few questions.
First off, let me scream out a huge THANK YOU to all of you who regularly post here. I've probably spent 70-80 hours over the last 5 months reading threads, and the amount of insight and helpfulness you guys share is really an awesome thing to behold. I'm sure I can handle most of the conversion on my own, but it's too cool knowing I can search anything here and probably come up with 4 or 5 different ways to accomplish the task at hand.
So, my questions --
1) Is an Allison 545 trans to be avoided at all costs, or just because it won't lock up? Is it otherwise on a par with their others models?
2) I haven't seen anything concerning the Spicer manual trans....anyone have a good or bad opinion ?
3) For cooling help on my bus, I had planned on cutting 16" wide x 6" tall vents in front and back (above the windshield and above the rear emergency door) with a sliding door to regulate the amount of air coming through while the bus is rolling. Other than blowing all my papers onto the floor, is there any structural reason I can't do this? I have yet to see any pics or discussion of this.
4) I have carefully read and agree with the forum rules, but.....can you insult Buckeye fans for their poor taste in football teams ?
GO BLUE !
