  1. Do you folks believe there could have been a domestic-market version of the Ikarus 284 articulated bus? Unlike the 286, which was the domestic version of the European-market Ikarus 280, the 284 artic had its engine in the back of the bus (the 280/286 was a mid-engine configuration). And if a domestic (U.S./Canada) version of the 284 had come to be, the available engines would've included the Detroit Diesel 6V92TA and 8V92TA and the Cummins L10, rated from 300-375 hp, teamed with the Allison HT740 (6V92TA or 8V92TA), ZF ECOMAT 5HP600 (6V92TA or L10) or the Voith D864 (6V92TA or L10). A 375 hp articulated bus engine is rare. Most importantly, would the domestic 284 not be as so steeped in the "lemon" problems the 286 had acquired? ~Ben
  2. Hi, Does anyone know anything about the Crown-Ikarus articulated buses, and if anyone here has any audio recordings from back in the day? All of the Crown-Ikarus 286 artics had Cummins NHHTC Big Cam engines at first. TriMet in Portland, OR, decided during 1986-87 to change out the original Cummins engines in favor of Detroit Diesel 6L71TA engines (an engine that was used on the related Orion III artics in Toronto and Ottawa), following prior lawsuits it made against the bus manufacturer (among other things, maintenance diagrams whose text was written mainly in Hungarian (Magyar)). The transmission specified in these buses was usually the Allison HT740 4-speed automatic, but 5 out of 40 buses ran by the Milwaukee County Transit System (MCTS), as well as all of Houston Metro's (MTA of Harris County) artics, used Voith DIWA D864.2 transmissions. ~Ben
