Re: crown bus engine upgrade? by Aaron
Post New Message Adding a turbo, haveing the timeing changed, and a calabratiopn of the fuel pump is all you'll need to do to upgrade the 220 to a 262, also install a proymeter at the dash to watch for excessive engine heat 1200 to 1300 is all you want to push a 262, also adding a set of Jacobs brakes will help on the down hill grades. Parts are still available for this motor but getting spendy.
Changeing to something else might be a problem as the Crowns laid the motor on its side for the busses, they we called the pancake 220's, they are getting hard to come by, 335's were also pancaked but none to had that I have seen.
