Most definitely! 13 years old, and doesn't look or sound a day over 2!

 

And it rides VERY good!!!! That had to be the Best ZF 5000 I have ever driven!!!! It wasn't all that bad BEFORE the Overhaul either.

Wow... sounds different from an RTS.

IMO, it sounds unbelievably awesome but horrible at the same time B).

 

9967 still beats this

That's a strange noise, hard to believe that the MTA only fixed the electricals and it ended up sounding so different. Coulda been some sort of muffler repair / overhaul maybe, that's a funny sound.

 

Great shots though, 5098 looks great.

 

This bus ran like this BEFORE the Overhaul....Nothing was done to the engine, only undercarriage, electrical, and body work was done, maybe even a engine clean, thats about it

Ummm......okay. This RTS has a ZF Transmission, so this is normal for them to sound like that. This one is just REALLY loud compared to the other ZFs that I have driven

That's what I said too! If you listen really close you can hear it though. Check out the videos in ciboii22's post here.

The engine was probably flushed. MTA has a contract in place with Detroit Diesel to overhaul/maintain some DDs50's and 60's
