INTRODUCTION
TRANSMISSION SPECIFICATIONS
Allison B 500R Transmission
Transmission Continued
Allison B 500R Features and Benefits:
•
•
•
Allison Transmission has built a reputation on their ability to build
transmissions that last just about forever. That is why Allison
Automatics are the preferred choice for many large, well-known
transit and charter bus fleets.
When you factor in all life cycle costs along with the increased
productivity, an Allison Automatic-equipped vehicle costs less per
mile to operate than a comparable competitively equipped vehicle.
On a vehicle with an automated manual transmission, the power
interrupts that occur during shift changes result in lower average
wheel horsepower. With an Allison Automatic, there is no power
interrupt during shift changes so Allison Automatic’s can make full
use of the engine’s horsepower. No power interrupts also
contribute to a smoother ride.
•
Six forward speeds, one reverse.
•
Its dynamic shift sensing automatically selects between lower and
higher speed shift schedules based on the vehicle’s weight and the
grade on which it’s operating.
•
It features a set of low and “super” low speed shift schedules
designed to keep the engine speed at its optimum point, maintaining
necessary performance without shift cycling.
•
The transmission moves neutral at stop to reduces or eliminates the
load on the engine while the vehicle is stopped, reducing fuel usage
and emissions.
•
Its acceleration rate management mitigates aggressive driving
practices by automatically controlling engine torque. The intensity of
control is determined by the vehicle’s weight and grade on which it’s
operating.
•
To get the most out of every drop of fuel, Allison 5th Generation
Electronic Controls offer an enhanced array of smart controls
designed to increase fuel economy and fuel efficiency for the
specific needs of buses.

OPERATOR PRECAUTIONS
The following precautions have been prepared for your safety and the
safety of your passengers and fellow motorists. Read and understand
this information before operating the motor coach.
The safe and reliable operation of this vehicle includes a thorough
working knowledge of all its components. When checking the vehicle
over or driving it, you should be able to recognize problems when they
exist and determine if your motor coach can be driven without affecting
its safe operation or causing more serious mechanical problems. When
work is required, you should be able to report accurately on the
problem.
WARNING
Use extreme caution while under motor coach, as motor coach
can suddenly drop when air is intentionally or unintentionally
removed from the suspension. Ensure parking brakes have been
applied and the wheels remaining on the ground are secured with
wheel chocks. Use properly sized jacks with the appropriate lifting
power. Always use proper chassis stands under a jacked up motor
coach.
WARNING
Never open the engine cooling system or the interior heating
system while the system is hot. Never add cold coolant to an
overheated engine. Do not place unprotected hands on a hot
engine, transmission, or exhaust.
WARNING
Before starting engine, ensure the transmission is in neutral and
the parking brake is engaged.
WARNING
Safely depressurize systems containing compressed air or liquid
under pressure prior to opening system.
WARNING
Prior to performing any checks, maintenance, or repair
procedures, ensure that motor coach is disabled to avoid serious
injury or death. When conducting checks, remember to keep a
safe distance away from moving parts.
WARNING
Refuel outdoors and use extreme caution while refueling.
WARNING
Do not unnecessarily idle the engine. Do not operate the engine
without an efficient exhaust removal system. Carbon monoxide
gas is toxic. Breathing it can cause unconsciousness and even
death.

SAFETY
PASSENGER SEATBELTS
Each passenger seat is equipped with a lap belt. Designed to
comfortably keep each passenger safely in the seat.
Why wear seat belts
•
•
•
•
•
•
Seat belts are the single most effective safety device for adults and
larger children (infants and smaller children must be properly
restrained in child seats.
Not wearing a seat belt properly increases the chance of serious
injury or death in a crash.
Keep you connected to the vehicle so you can take advantage of
the motor coaches built-in safety features.
Help protect you in almost every type of crash; including side, rear
impacts, and rollovers. In a rollover crash, an unbelted person is
more likely to die than a person wearing a seat belt.
Help keep you from being thrown against the inside of the motor
coach and against other passengers.
Keep you and your passengers from being thrown out of the motor
coach.
Of course, seat belts cannot completely protect you or your passengers
in every crash. But in most cases, seat belts can reduce your risk of
serious injury.
What should you do:
•
8
Always wear your seat belt properly and make sure your
passengers do as well.
WARNING
If a seat belt does not seem to work as it should, it may not protect
the occupant in a crash. No one should sit in a seat with an
inoperative seat belt. Anyone using a seat belt that is not working
properly can be seriously injured or killed.
Contact CHTC (USA), INC. 800-216-6788 as soon as possible
for parts or repairs.
WARNING LABELS
Warning labels warn you of potential hazards that could cause serious
injury. Read all warning labels carefully and follow instructions on them.
Learn and watch for labels.
If a label comes off or becomes hard to read, contact CHTC (USA),
INC. 800-216-6788 as soon as possible
ROAD SAFETY
The motor coach has been equipped with three reflective roadside
emergency safety triangles that are to be deployed while motor coach is
disabled. After opening the kit, unfold the triangle and ensure it locks

ENGINE STARTUP
GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS
After performing the daily inspection and safety checks, you are ready
to operate the motor coach. Safety on the road also depends on you.
Observe weather and road conditions, then drive accordingly. Be
physically and mentally alert.
Engage parking brake. Put the gearshift in the neutral position, making
sure that the rear compartment doors are closed (or engine is
prevented from starting). Insert the key into the ignition start switch and
turn clockwise to the start position. The engine should start within 30
seconds. If starting fails, wait 2 minutes for starter motor to cool down.
Repeat start procedure until the engine starts.
WARNING
Do not run engine for long periods of time in a closed or poorly
ventilated building, where exhaust gases can accumulate.
Do not run a cold engine at high rpm. Idling too fast during warm-up will
cause too rapid and uneven expansion, resulting in premature engine
wear. The rpm should be increased gradually after starting a cold
engine.
If, while driving the motor coach, any of the items below are noticed,
correct condition immediately.
Do not operate the motorcoach at high rpm until the engine water
temperature reaches 158°F (70°C).
•
•
•
STEERING ACTION - Binding, wander, shimmy, excessive steering
wheel play, and pulling to one side.
BRAKING ACTION - Increased pedal travel, slow response,
chatter, grabbing, weak, pulling to one side, and excessive air
pressure drop for brake application.
VIBRATION - From engine, driveline, accessories, and wheel
imbalance. Scan the instrument panel frequently and be alert for
any changes from normal gauge readings.
Refer to appropriate subject in troubleshooting section of this manual
for detailed data.
CAUTION
Damage may occur if engine idles for more than 10 minutes at low
rpm. Idling the engine too slowly does not allow sufficient splash
lubrication of cylinder walls and may result in excessive wearing
of pistons and liners.
There must be a display of the oil pressure on the instrument panel
within 15 seconds after starting the engine, otherwise stop the engine
and correct problem immediately.
If the parking brake indicator on the instrument panel is illuminated, the
parking break is engaged.
37
OPERATING
Engine
After starting the engine, but before operation, be sure the indicator
lights and gauges work. The braking system air pressure should read
at least 81 psi (490 kPa) or above. Coolant temperature should be 158°
F (70° C) or above, and the parking brake released. You can now
operate the motor coach in a safe manner.
This will allow circulating coolant and lubricating oil to carry heat away
from cylinder head, valves, pistons, cylinder liners, and bearings, thus
preventing warping of valve stems or distortion of other parts resulting
from uneven cooling.
NOTE: Refuel before final shutdown. The less air space in the fuel tank
means that there is less opportunity there will be for water to condense
in the tank.
Normal Driving Conditions
Stopping The Engine
Ensure the following are within their acceptable limits.
•
•
•
Oil pressure should be within the range of 33 to 52 psi (227 to 358
kPa ).
Water temperature should be within the range of 176 to 200° F (79
to 94° C).
The indicator of the air pressure gauge should be within the green
range of 78 to 130 psi (538 to 896 kPa).
If you encounter any abnormal sounds or smells, stop and check the
motor coach. Avoid any abrupt acceleration or braking if possible. Avoid
engine over-speed.
CAUTION
Do not shift into neutral until vehicle is stopped!
Perform the following procedures:
1. Bring the motor coach to a complete stop using the service brakes.
2. Shift transmission into neutral. The transmission should be set to
the neutral position before shutting off the engine to prevent an
error report display.
3. Set parking brake by pulling out control knob.
Before Stopping Engine
4. Allow the engine to cool below 194° F (90º C). Do so by letting the
engine idle no more than 10 minutes.
CAUTION
Do not shut off the engine while vehicle is in motion. This will
cause eventual brake and immediate power steering failure.
5. Shut engine down by turning the ignition key to the ACC position.
The accessory position cuts off the fuel supply and shuts down the
engine.
A hot engine has a great deal of heat stored up in its iron mass. Let the
engine idle for no more than 10 minutes before shutting down the
engine.

WINTER DRIVING TIPS
DPF REGENERATION
Perform the following winter driving tips for enhanced motor coach
performance needed during cold weather
A diesel particulate filter, sometimes called a DPF, is a device designed
to remove diesel particulate matter or soot from the exhaust gas of a
diesel engine.
•
•
•
•
•
Add long life coolant into the cooling system.
Check the fluid level, specific gravity, and voltage output of the
battery.
Use soft water in engine cooling system.
Do not operate the vehicle until the engine has had time to warm
up.
Do not operate if any malfunctions are present.
In addition to collecting the particulate, a method exists to clean the
filter. This is known as filter regeneration. Regeneration is the process
of removing the accumulated soot from the filter.
WARNING
To avoid serious personal injury or property damage, ensure that
no persons or objects are at or within 2 feet of the exhaust outlet
at any time during a regeneration.
WARNING
Ensure that exhaust and outlet are clear of any trash, grasses, or
other vegetation or debris.
WARNING
Use extreme caution during a stationary regeneration, as exhaust
gas tail pipe outlet temperatures can exceed 900° F (482° C).
WARNING
Stationary regenerations are to be performed outdoors only.
WARNING
DO NOT perform inside a garage or maintenance facility. DO NOT
attach an exhaust extraction hose to the exhaust outlet.

Park Regeneration Procedure
Park the vehicle safely off the road and away from flammable
materials. Place vehicle in neutral and apply parking brake.
Press regen button ON
then press engine diagnosis button
.
The engine speed will automatically ramp up to a preset RPM
which indicates the regen cycle has started. When regen cycle is
complete engine speed(RPM) will return to normal operating status
and return regen button to OFF position.
WARNING
Failure to perform Parked Regeneration when the exhaust
filter indicator is ON will cause the engine to lose power and
eventually shutdown. When performing Parked Regeneration,
make certain the vehicle is safely off the roadway and away
from people or any flammable materials or structures, as the
regeneration process will result in elevated exhaust temperatures.
Failure to follow these instructions may result in a loss of engine
power, vehicle speed, and may cause an accident or fire resulting
in property damage, personal injury, or death.

quantity is below the add mark.
NOTE: Inspection check sheet is available at the end of this section,
and can be copied for reuse.
WARNING
Before checking, park the motor coach on a flat roadway.
Before starting each day, check or inspect the following to ensure
trouble-free performance:
•
•
•
Make visual inspection of entire unit.
Check under motor coach for signs of leaks. If any are noted,
correct condition causing leaks.
Check all fluid levels on chassis: engine and transmission oil,
coolant level, power steering fluid, and all other oil and liquid
levels. Also check engine belts, hoses, and wiring for condition
and adjust as needed.
NOTE: For more details, read the following:
With the engine stopped, pull out the oil level dip stick and clean it with
a clean cloth. Insert the dipstick into the crankcase completely, then pull
it out again. The fluid level should be between the add and full marks. If
engine had been running recently, allow at least ten minutes for oil to
drain into crankcase. Use only recommended engine oil.
ENGINE OIL PRESSURE
The oil pressure will be high soon after cool-starting the motor coach; oil
temperature will be increasing, and engine rotation speed will be
normalizing. The oil pressure should be in the range of 33-55 psi. If the
indicator is low or does not register within 15 seconds, stop and check
oil level/condition and for any needed repair.
DRIVE BELTS AND BELT TENSION
Check condition and tension of the belts on the engine, fan, and
compressor. If any relaxation, tighten belts. If there is any belt damage is
present, replace belt.
Check for intersecting cracks on belts. Cracks are acceptable along the
width of the belt, but if these transversal cracks intersect with
longitudinal (belt length) cracks, replace belt. Also replace if the belt
shows extensive wear.
CAUTION
Over-tight or excessive slack in belt tension can be harmful to the
engine.

INSPECTION
TIRES AND WHEELS
WARNING
Always maintain your tires in good condition. Frequently check
and maintain correct inflation pressures as specified by the tire
manufacturers. Inspect periodically for abnormal wear patterns
and replace/repair cut or broken tire casing. Always use
experienced, trained personnel with proper equipment and
correct procedures to mount or remove tires. Failure to adhere
to these warnings could result in tire malfunction, damage to the
motor coach, personal injury, and possibly death.
Regular and frequent inspection and proper care will give you the
assurance of safe, reliable tire operation. Most tire wear problems are
caused by under inflation such as a slow leak. Low pressure is a tire's
worst enemy. It allows tires to flex badly and this causes high
temperatures to build up. Heat causes early tire damage, such as flex
breaks, radial cracks, and ply separation. Furthermore, low tire
pressures can affect control of your motor coach, particularly at the
front wheels.
Look for bumps, blisters, cuts, punctures, cracks, uneven wearing, and
tread depth. Verify that lug nuts are tight. Adjust to specifications if
loose.
NOTE: Correct inflation pressure should be:
•
•
•
•
Front axle 120 psi.
Drive axle 110 psi.
Tag axle 120 psi.
Spare 120 psi.
Check and maintain the correct inflation pressure for each tire every
morning or when tires are cool. Check tire pressures ONLY when the
tires are cool. Warm or hot tires cause pressure buildup. Do not deflate
a warm tire to specified pressure. Tire thumping during the walk around
inspection will tell you if a tire is deflated, but the only way to check tire
pressure is with an accurate gauge. If any tires are found to be
considerably under inflated, the motor coach should not be driven until
cause of the leak is determined and repairs have been made.
NOTE: After driving a new motor coach approximately 31 miles (50
Km), an adjustment of the lug nuts should be performed according to
torque specifications. The fastening sequence should be cross
symmetrical. The fastening sequence and torque specifications can be
found in the maintenance section.
*No regrooved tires on the front axle are allowed.

ENGINE OIL
The preferred engine oil is an equivalent of the American Petroleum
Institute API CI-4 15W-40.
The engine oil will need to be replaced at specified intervals due to oil
consumption, contamination of the oil as it flows through the engine,
and the breakdown of chemical additives. The recommended
frequency for changing the oil is approximately every 15,000 to 20,000
miles (24,000 to 32,000 km). Based on the driving conditions, quality of
fuel and environmental conditions the frequency may increase or
decrease based on the individual use of each motor coach.
Engine Oil level
CAUTION
Never operate the engine with oil level below the ADD mark or
above the FULL mark on the dipstick.
Oil dipstick and oil filler tube.
Place motor coach on level surface. Pull out dipstick and wipe it clean
with a clean cloth. Insert dipstick and pull out again. The oil level should
be between the ADD and the FULL marks on the dipstick.
If the oil level is too low, add oil through the oil filler tube. Bring level up
to FULL mark.
Engine Oil Viscosity
Since the viscosity of the engine oil changes with the temperature, the
average ambient temperature at the operating site of the engine is very
important for us to choose oil viscosity grade. Occasionally, if
temperature drops below the lower limit, it may reduce the cold staring
capability of the engine but not cause any damage to the engine.
The engine oil with an excessively high viscosity would cause engine
starting difficultly. Therefore, the ambient temperature while the engine
starts is the main basis on which to choose an engine oil. You may also
avoid replacement of the engine oil due to the temperature changes
provided the multi-functional engine oil is used.
NOTE: Adding any additive into above-mentioned engine is
unnecessary. Avoid mixing and using different types of engine oil.
Performing oil changes on time is crucial.

MAINTENANCE
GEAR LUBRICANT
DIESEL FUEL
Always use synthetic gear lubricant that conforms to the API GL5 SAE
80W-90 grade. Using the recommended brands from ZF Axles is
acceptable.
POWER STEERING LUBRICANT
Allison C-3, DEXRON-II hydraulic transmission oil should be chosen
when the power steering mechanism operates under temperatures
lower than 50° F (10° C); If above 50° F (10° C) then choose C-3/10W;
the C-3/10W grade oil is an all-season oil in freezing zones; The C-3/30
grade oil is all-season oil in non-freezing areas.
FINAL DRIVE UNIT LUBRICANT
The lubricant for reduction final drive should meet the applied
conditions of the ECO FluidX (80w-90) grade of API for the heavy
load, the hyperbolic surface gear as well as meet the applied
ambient temperature conditions.
CHASSIS LUBRICANT
The #2 lithium-based lubricant grease (suitable for ambient temperature
of -22° to 248°F (-30° to 120°C)) should be applied to the various
components.
DEF TANK
The DEF tank is located rear curbside access door panel. Filled to max
line. Max capacity 15 gallons. Never add diesel fuel into the DEF tank.
72
Fuel tank fill caps are located behind small locked panels. The small
locked panels are located on both sides of motor coach. Use only high
purity diesel, with a content of sulfur that is not more than 0.3 percent.
CAUTION
Avoid driving with an extremely low fuel level. Running extremely
low or out of fuel could cause engine damage.
MAINTENANCE
EMERGENCY STARTING USING JUMPER CABLES
WARNING
The following procedures must be performed exactly as outlined, otherwise a fire or a battery explosion could result in property damage,
personal injury, or death.
1. Do not allow metal tools to contact positive terminal of battery to prevent shorting of the electrical system.
2. Place transmission in Neutral and set parking brake in both vehicles.
3. Shut off lights, heater, air conditioner and any other electrical loads in both vehicles.
4. Wear eye protection.
5. Make sure vehicle bodies are not touching.

MAINTENANCE
FUSE PANEL
74
MAINTENANCE
First diagram’s fuse panel is installed in the luggage compartment, and second fuse panel is installed beside the battery cabin.
WARNING
Electrical circuits are designed with a particular wire gauge to meet the fuse and circuit breaker current rating. Do not
increase the size of fuse or circuit breaker, or change type of breaker supplied with your motor coach. To do so could
cause wiring to overheat and possibly burn, resulting in a fire which could cause property damage, personal injury or
death.
CAUTION
No modification should be made to any motor coach control system without first contacting your HT dealer.
