New Mexico Mechanic for pre-sales inspection

I think we found a bus with all the specs we need.

It's a 1990 MCI 102-C3 with a 8v92T. Photos look good and video shows a nice clean rebuilt engine and running strong on the highway.

I am looking for someone who knows MCI's and is in the Albuquerque, NM area to have a good look over the bus before I head out there.

or maybe a referral for a Mechanic in that area?

Would appreciate any and all input.

Bus photos below just cause I know some of you will want to have a look

That's a nice looking MCI. do you know how many miles it has on the rebuild?

I am having trouble understanding the use of "clean" and "8v92" in the same sentence

Just kidding. But there is a reason they call them "green leakers".

My last bus had an 8v71 and left two silver dollar sized oil spots from the vent tubes. Kind of a calling card.

DD two strokes are picky when it comes to oil. A good read on the subject can be found here:
