At least 30 MCI 102DL3 for sale
« on: December 15, 2016, 09:49:43 AM »
I have no connection with this site, but I came across these today.
Golden Gate Transit-Santa Rosa

At least 30 MCI 102DL3 with DDEC Series 60  and Allison B500R
They look to be between 1991 and 1999, and a couple of RTS buses with series 50
ALso says they have been sitting for 3 years

If I did not have the 96A3 I would probably try and get one of these.

Would not the 4.56:1 be problematic on the road? Seems that is a city bus ratio.

No a 4:56 is a ideal gear for a B400 or B500 6 speed World Transmission with the double overdrive

Yup Clifford is correct just about all over the road buses with the B500 come from the factory with 4:56 gears.
I know mine have.
