Re: How much to rebuild an Detroit 8V92 in a bus?
Sorry, if you can wait a week I can ask the parts guy for prices. Send me a pm reminding me. I forget things most times. Oh, I am going on vacation for a week and I tend to forget all for that time period. Yes have the airbox covers removed and inspected, oil sample ok, mileage on engine/bearings, If you buy this coach then replace the mains and rod bearings. Yes take the oil sample, look for coolant in the oil. 1 tablespoon in the oil pan is enough to spin the mains on these 92 series. Yes 1 tablespoon.Look at the engine closely, look for unuse conditions, rust on the coolant system pipes, cracked/brittle hoses, bad oil leaks, If the coach is worth it then do a stall test to check for excessive smoke. Good way to check vehicle brakes as well. BTW, there is no inexpensive way to build a motor home. Start with a real repair job on the guts of the beast, The drive train. Then add the goodies. Seen a lot and seen some I would like to pass on working on. Good luck.

It is said if you sit by the river and watch the water flow by long enough, your enemies will pass by. This I believe to be true. It is also possible to watch your loved ones pass by as well.
