Intro: I'm typ4's son, with a big old transit bus RV conversion I've been flogging down the road for a handful of years. We're upgraded the cylinder head, rodded the radiator, re-plumbed, tuned, adjusted, and upgraded all that is possible on this TIRED 6-71 Detroit Diesel. I converted it to an overdrive (automatic, due to the odd v-drive configuration) to help on the highways but this power-plant is nearing the end of it's life. It won't start without ether and the thought of spending the $ on an in-frame when this old beast is just too darn underpowered to push these slushboxes down the road...hurts. With that in mind, I am seeking out a GM RTS NOVA, Flxible Metro, Neoplan, or anything similar with the VR731RH tied to a Detroit Diesel 50 Series. These would be buses from the mid 1990's and have the 4-banger mounted transverse in the back with the odd-ball v-drive driveline running off at an angle. Runners are ideal but I can work with most anything if the price is right. I'm here in the Pacific NW but please point me at anything that could help us out in this project. A rusty or wrecked bus would be ideal so I'm not gutting a perfect bus but with my limited budget, we'll see what happens. If you see one of these about, let me or typ4 know. Thank you!
