Don't Forget The Sound Difference!

The six cylinder 671 sounds like....like a 6 cylinder engine.  Very smooth. However, the mighty 8V71 sounds like a gas V8 with an attitude.  Might make a difference if you are "tuned" into such things.

FWIW and IMHO, if you really want either a 4104 or 4106, consider the 4106 for all of the good reasons already given.  Have people put a 8V92N 400hp into a 4106?  Lots of more potential.   HB of CJ (old coot)

 I plan on stopping by on my way out and it better be not in Alaska. I may miss seeing my favorite president Bill.   

I guess every one knows why he is famous.

I can't tell any difference in the 6 and 8 at high rpms, they both scream (nice), at idle there is a difference to me.

The 4104 may be underpowered but, is sure is a beautiful bus! I think we can all agree on that,

HB of CJ-the main reason the 8V-92-whether it be a NA or TA is not installed in a V drive is the large vibration dampner (like a small flywheel) on the front of the engine. Most V drives have mounts that go around the front crankshaft that the vibrations dampner would get in the way. Also with the vibration dampner, the direct drive fan drive would not work.

I had a belt drive set up on my AMGeneral when I got it, but had the mechanic change it to a gear drive where I run a normal right turning 8 blade fan.  Good Luck, TomC

I looked for over 4 years at a lot of buses and got the 4106 because of the AT and the power. I will say I like the look of 4104 better. I just could not pass up the one I got. It just felt right. Good luck in looking for yours thats half the fun.

 Damit Kevin :o (just joking) Now I have to keep looking, because I found a GM 4903, and am thinking the bays are so big, I might be able to pull my harley into one  ;D and solve the problem of bringing my truck and bike with me ::)

Kevin,

Same thing happened to me, I was looking for a 4106 but found this 4107 at a price I couldn't pass by! I really didn't want a taller bus, the 4104/4106 are just the right size, but this 4107 had Sheppard PS and Allison AT which I really need because I am an ancient wimp!

However, the 3751 is still my favorite on looks alone, that style and four on the tree are just way cool!

We will be there with our 5A and we have friends with a 4104 that should be there too.
