    you are up and running / happy and back on the road .

    What engine / transmission does it have ?
    Its a Detroit Diesel ? Or do you have a part number for the starter ?

    I just bought a set of brand new tires for my bus ,
    I got them off of EBay for far far less then the retail price .

    The plan of using small jacks to lift a large weight scares me .
    4 jacks are not one , they will not be equally loaded .
    They will not be the same as one 8 ton jack .

    I think most big bus can be rolled under without being jacked up .

    This guy says he has parts .

      Commins 290 Turbo and Alison Automatic. We will need to jack the bus up because the suspension is air bags. We will block up to the needed height  so the bus wont be resting on the jacks when we get under it.

      Stop and think about what you can do to help.
