    I started with a bare frame,but had to set the cab in place for fitment.We're going to run a nv4500/205 combo behind it.I believe we will remove the factory heater and go aftermarket.Finished the motor crossmember yesterday and will be ready to re-install the motor today or tomorrow.

    Seen many a bus in my life working for freightliner. Some of the GSA Bluebird buses run gm A-6 compressors with custom brackets on the bottom of the engine....and or sanden compressors in the same location. Later model ftl medium duty ftl's mount the compressor to the front left of the valve cover on the isb and older 5.9L's. There were some problems over the years with the mounts and different methods of belt adjustment. I still have a cummins TSB in my tool box where cummins incorperated the compressor mount with the fan drive for ridgity issues....as far as the heater box goes...been waiting on mosesburb to get off his bum and drop his 5.9L in his 72 burb and see what it looks like as i have only seen gen stuff converted to cummins power. There is a parts guy in phx who works for cummins rocky mountain who has a gen 2 burb powered by cummins for at least the last 8 years.
