I'm a bus nut, who uses buses to haul medical supplies to Central America and Haiti. Plelase read my blurb below, and contact me if I can help with anything.
Howdy fellow Enthusiast/Bus Fan
I am new to the site, but I already recognize many of the nice bus folks and names Iíve seen for years on the Net. So I wanted to drop a line to some of the members who I think I might be able to share information with, or possibly lend assistance.
I am a retired school teacher (not by choice) who has been working with buses and trucks and diesel stuff for about 18 years. I've also owned 3 diesel Mercedes, a diesel Isuzu (Great car!), Lister Diesels, Deutz diesels, and I have also had two Nissan diesel pickups. I started driving a truck (Intíl Fleetstar 2000D, 6-71 DD, 10 speed Roadranger) 31 years ago when I was in the military.
I'm best on school buses, so if you have an expensive silversides 4104 I will be of only limited help. But I do know quite a bit about engines in general, especially Cummins, CAT, Detroits and IHC. Iíve helped rebuild a CAT 1160 V-8, and a 180 Cummins, so I learned a lot and got very dirty!
I currently have several Crowns, some Gilligs, a Ford/Gillig, an International/Ward, and also LOTS of tires and bus parts. I mean LOTS!
I have a very simple policy on selling anything, from an entire bus to the smallest part. If you are unsatisfied with anything, just return it undamaged for a full refund. That includes the entire bus, as long as you donít keep it for 10 years. Bus parts and buses only appreciate in value (well OK s.l.o.w.l.y appreciate) so I wonít be hurt, nor will I have any hard feelings. Iíll just sell it to somebody else later.
I have also dismantled 7 buses (one Crown, two Fords and four Gilligs) and know a lot about their innards. Iíve spent waaaay too much time underneath a bus!
So if you need any help, feel free to give me a call or an e-mail.
Have a good one
