Too cool.  I hope all is going well with the bus.

Oh, you will have that double clutch down in no time!   Although I have driven many busses through my years in that line of work, I have never driven one like yours but still brings back memories.  First job I had was driving a 59 GMC  4104.  They also had the 01 Eagles. Going from GMCs and Eagles was quite different. The Eagles shifted slowly. We used to say that ya had time to run back to the rest room in between shifts lol. GMC s were faster. (the ol oil bath clutch) and were a little tricky on some. But I have never driven a bus with column , always had the floor shift.  No power steering is not so bad. When ya get used to it. The first bus I drove with power steering was in 1987. A MCI 8   The first time I drove I thought I was in heaven. It was the first automatic I drove too.   These GMCs are so well built and yous even has a Jake brake !   like the fact that it still has the destination sign too.   Well, sorry to ramble on here. I wish you many happy miles . Its not just a classic its a piece of history as well. Like I said, she is a beauty.      Best Wishes.                                        Rick

The engine is a 6-71 Detroit Diesel with a Spicer four speed manual transmission, on the column with electric reverse,  and a jake brake.  There are approximately 45,000 miles on this rebuilt driveline.  The clutch, drag link and tie rod ends received attention last summer.  

Guess I'll be working on my double clutching technique when it get's here;) 

(upshift: Clutch, neutral, shift.... clutch neutral shift & downshift: clutch, neutral, tap gas, shift....  right?)

Also no power steering, I'll be getting a free workout every time I drive.... lol
