In addition, most Blue Bird people are sociable and willing to show their bird if you show interest. The key word here is "most".

Default Allison mod at Q?

I need to get the Allison transmission modification done (so it doesn't go straight into 4th gear when the retarder is on). Is there a place at/near Quartzsite that does this, and if so, would there be enough interest to get someone out to the Birds Nest to do it on multiple busses?

I would be interested in this mod to shift to 5th instead of 4th. Do you have a contact? The Alison dealer in Anaheim was not interested in doing this. He claimed it could damage the computer which would then have to be replaced. I have contacted WW Williams in Tucson and expect to hear back on Monday about possibly coming to Quartzite to do a number of coaches if more are interested.

W.W. Williams in Phoenix is a lot closer to Q. https://www.wwwilliams.com/location/phoenix-az/

Default We’re going to Q14!!

In January we had had our bus a few weeks when we went to our first rally at Q. What a blast. So many nice people. An amazing second adventure, the drive home from central Illinois to Denver being the first.
Quartzsite is a blast. Going back in 2020!! Look for a hole in the weather and blast down to Az. Or take our time even better. I highly recommend it!!

I checked the Allison Sales and Service Locator website. The closest is Rush Truck Center in Yuma. Allison Website Indicates they do reprogramming.

Contact Info: https://www.rushtruckcenters.com/loc...arch/1505-yuma


Allison Service Centers: https://www.allisontransmission.com/...ervice-locator
