    literally, a 78 chevy 30 dually van one,

    neighbor traded an 86 chevy K20 pickup for it,

    and its tired and beat and the 350 needs a carb and tuned up and th400 kick wire is unplugged or something it stays in first gear, but i rode in it from where we got it all the way to next door just now, should have sene all the looks we got haha

    dana 60 with 4.10 RPO, school bus equipment RPO code, 5.7L 4bbl engine RPO, RO5 dual rear wheel conversion RPO, some other interesting options

    hell it might be the same exact short bus i rode to kindergarten everyday back in around 81 a few blocks north of here

    neighbor says he wants to use it to haul the ATV's in.
    engine runs bad though, rockers rattling, carb loading up fuel coming out of it, and the tranny not leaving first gear.

    the K20 he traded for ti i would have kept, it was nice, worth alot more than the bus, but oh well, he does this stuff all the time, he is crazy

    fixed the bus, the carb was dumping gas into engine so bad that there was about 5 gallons of gas to drain out of pan, put a good carb on it and new plugs and oil and the tranny is actually a th350 and what was wrong was the hose at the intake for the modulator valve was disconnected and split, now it will burn off all four wheels, before it would barely idle along in gear barely any power to move itself we had to pull it at first,
    about an hour ago after while we took it for a spin after we just got done fixing all this i was sitting inside and i got thrown all the way to the back of the bus haha, its great now it hauls ass big time, we just got back form taking it around towna nd showing friends and stuff, alot of ppl point and laugh its great. gonna use it to haul cars to peoria, its got reese setup under it already:D
    wish i knew you needed a 4.10 60 rear axle last fall, i had to scrap a '67 powrlok one cuz no one wanted it i held onto it for months
