|Re: Diesel Pusher Chassis by Mark O.|
|Almost all of the diesel pusher chassis were built either by Oshkosh (now Freigthliner) or Spartan.
Engine choices were mostly Cummins 5.9L/ISB or 8.2L/ISC or the Cat 3208 or 3116.
Transmission choices almost always Allison AT540/MT640 series hyrdalically shifted tranmissions or on the newer rigs the electronically controlled World Trans.
In most cases, the larger engines with the larger transmissions are the better choices. Stay away from the AT540 series transmissions because they are not built heavy enough for the application. They also do not have much hold back on downgrades--they basically freewheel.
Good luck and happy trails.
