3563's New Diesel Life & 4766

Recommended Posts

Wow, that looks so weird @ 3763, bus looks like the top was literally just broken apart like a toy. Anyways, what buses are next to get the conversion? An Xcelsior on the Bx39, lol, that looks like overkill!

Cool pics! So they're just gonna leave those two things on top?

 

 

From what it looks like, yes.

What are the specs? ISL and Allison or ZF?

 

Awesome shots as always btw.

Smart move, but I thought this was just a 1-bus trial so far. The BAE HybriDrive was meant for urban stop and go traffic only, if this works out they should do the same thing to other BC/NYCT buses in the outer boroughs.

Now comes the part where everyone rushes for a sound clip or a video of 3563! Thanks for keeping us updated Trevor!

ISL is the engine. Allison or ZF made the transmission.

I just checked the bus out today, definitely has a remaned ISL in it. I can't tell if its an EPA '04 or an EPA '07 though, definitely not an ISL9. Given the age of the bus and the fact that every new EPA diesel exhaust regulation comes with a higher price tag, I'm leaning towards it being an '04 regulated ISL. As for the transmission, the keypad in the front has an Allison symbol on it, so I'm assuming the transmission follows suit. I just don't know exactly which model it is. I'll see if I can dig up a few things on the computer

I'm assuming it would be an EPA 07 ISL (or at least according to the documents that was posted some months ago)

So will these OG's sound like the Orion 3G's we have?

 

They will not sound like the Orion 4Gs, this one has an Allison.
