I posted this video on youtube a few days ago. However I am not quite sure if the engine is actually a Caterpillar C9, I was told it was. These are Gillig Advantage 40 ft buses with Voith D863.3E transmissions. This is my first post so please forgive me if its in the wrong spot.

Welcome to Bus Talk!
I don't know much about transit buses, and even less about Gilligs....but I looked at Gilligs website, and the engine options were either Cummins, or Cat C9. Don't know if you have access or not, but Cat engines are instantly recognizable by their yellow paint.....

You're definitely in the right garage! Welcome to the forum. Can you tell me what bus company owns this bus? Perhaps it can be a start for finding more info.
