I'm not with the coach, facilitated it's sale/handoff to it's new owner who departed on WEN.

Monday I think he has it scheduled to get over a pit to see what the issue is.

I gave him BK's # as well as a few bus companies in the area

Glad to hear he's up and going.

I saw the thread this weekend, but noticed he'd already been given my # as well as several others and figured if he still needed assistance I'd hear from him.

Never did hear from him so I assumed all was good!

Hey BK.

know anyone down in your neck of the woods that knows about the Allison VS2-8

my folks are in the Nashville area and she won't upshift out of "second"

Doug,
I'd call Mr. Bowen down @ the Choo-Choo garage in Chattanooga.
He and Joel know quite a bit about those and may even know someone up around Nashville that does.

The only other suggestion I'd have would be "Clarke Power Service" the local Allison dealer in the Nashville area.
