Looking for bus ...

2011 International 3000 with MAXXFORCE DT engine / 60k miles, would it worth 5k ?

It still bit more than i can chew, and I still need to check for rust since it is in the NY area.

Walk away from the bus, no Maxxforce engine is worth it. Horrible engines that love the shop. I've watched hundreds of thousands be flushed down toilets trying to fix Maxxforce engines.

As Truthseeker says, walk away walk away fast. If you think $5000 is the expensive part of bus ownership you'd be in for a huge surprise with that beast.

No way in hell. Even if the bus was FREE I would not want that engine.

MaxiPadd engine? I wouldn't take that headache if they paid me 5000. Cummins ISB isn't terrible.
