Re: 8v71 by BUBBA THE BUS TECH
Post New Message Hi guys. The only 6V71/automatic I ever saw in a 5 was a glass top with 41 seats. I got passed by super Bs. Good it was slow on the hills. Just warm up on fast idle or at 1000 until the pressure is there to run it. Since we have very cold winter temps we need to do a warm up before loading the engine, If it starts without trouble (meaning it was warm enough to start with out starting fluid) it only needs 5 minutes or so. In the summer getting full air pressure on the guage and going is definatly the way to run it. Have fun, these little busses were the hot rods of the bussing industy for 3 decades that I drove. Good luck
