I would say they are WAY more comfortable than a normal school bus seat. Honestly I'd never been on a school or transit bus before with seats this nice. If it was on my local route, I'd probably be...

Free - AC units

Two A/C units and a condenser. Works great! These just came out of a 2000 BlueBird Transit bus.

Free - Leather bus seats

I have really comfy maroon leather bus seats coming out of a 2000 BlueBird transit bus. They come in groups of 2-,3-, and 5-seat benches. Great condition. Free! Pick up in St Pete Florida.

Looking for Cummins ISC 8.3 owner's manual

Hi, does anyone have a pdf for the ISC 8.3? I'd be interested in the "Operations & Maintenance Manual", "Owners Manual", and the "Wiring Diagram" documents.


I actually have a C-series manual...

Ha, that's exactly what I thought at first, probably just lazily copy-pasting, but upon looking closer I realized the text is not verbatim, and they would have had to go out of their way to do so....

Hmm okay, I see there is a general consensus forming. All these points seem reasonable to me.

I think it must be cracked, because the mechanic said it is leaking oil from there. He also said, assuming I can find a used differential, it would probably be greater than $5k to replace the entire...

Thank you for the thoughtful response. If I'm being honest (hopefully I don't get tar & feathered on this forum for saying so) I personally think it's insane that people, such as myself, are legally...

The bus will be registered in FL and from what I can tell there are no emissions requirements or inspections here. I'm still curious about the legality of the actual delete itself. Obviously if I...

DPF & cracked rear axle housing: dealbreakers?

I found my "perfect" bus! But of course, it's not quite perfect. This is a 2000 Bluebird transit-style bus equipped with a Cummins ISC 8.3, and a HUSS DPF. I've done some digging on DPF in this...

Should EGR be avoided at all costs?
