Bus turns over won't start, 2000 BlueBird RE 8.3 ISC Cummins
Hi all, been lurking for a long time and need to post now that I finally own a bus! :dance:

Bus: 2000 BlueBird All American, RE 8.3 ISC, MD3060, 157k miles.

I just purchased our bus last week and drove it home over 2,400 miles with no major issues. I parked it in front of our house and then went out the next day to move it in to it's spot where it will be converted. It fired right up, I put it in drive, drove it 200 feet, and the bus sputtered and shut off. I towed it right back to where it was, and now it won't start. It will turn over, but will not fire.

I have tried to make sure that all windows and doors are closed as they should be. I have fuel pressure at the filter, I also loosened one of the fuel lines going to the motor and cranked it over, plenty of fuel getting there(at least I think it's plenty of fuel). I'm not sure what else could be the issue. :banghead:

Any help or guidance would be amazing! I'm pretty handy around an engine, but this engine is new to me and I don't know all the quirks or things to check yet.

Thanks in advance!
