B 700 bus with 8.2 L detroit diesel engine Anubis 3-11-03  

I just purchased a Ford bus (B700) with an 8.2 L detroit diesel engine in it.

I was wondering if anyone knows the basic maintenance spces for this engine:

Engine oil capacity / type

Coolant capacity / type

Belts / hoses / filters / etc.


It has an Allison transmission. Not sure which one.

It would be nice to know how much fluid it holds, what type to use, etc.

I want to take good care of this setup, and I need to know the basics.

Any help would be appreciated.
