Anyone know roughly what a rebuild would cost on my 1975 Silver Eagle bus with a Detroit Turbo Diesel motor?

To begin with, a 1975 Eagle would not have had a Turbo Diesel originally, so you need to know what engine you have. Someone put something else in such as a 6V92, a military 8V71, or a 8V92. Costs depend on what engine, the level of rebuild (inframe vs out of frame), which components need overhaul, etc., all effect the price. It could be from $3000-5000, or over $20,000 in a professional shop that gives a guarantee. Depending on what you perceive is wrong with the engine, it might only need a repair, or something as simple as changing the fuel filters.
