      Just ordered a little tuneup kit for the bus, should be in today! Yanked off the strainer this morning and it didnt look that bad. I was expecting molasses.

      Started to look around some more and do a little more thorough visual inspection on some of the wiring and came up w/ this. First we have a pic of the "fuel filter" granted its lookin better than most of the bus but look past it and take a good look at the pump and tell me if you see something missing b/c I do!!! HOSE. Also the wiring is not connected. Also that brown wire on the "fuel filter" is connected to that red wire which goes to the + terminal on the coil.


      Next we have the coil wiring. - terminal is supposed to have the disconnected green wire connected which goes to the ignition distributor. Looks like spark and fuel are an issue on the bus lol


      Last but not least especially when I get really get working on the bus. I put in about a 1/2hr before work so pls bare w/ me. In the beginning its gonna be a slow build. When I had picked up the bus the owner of the vehicle was budging the bus up from inside the car so I was trying to figure out what he was doing. Apparently he was tapping the red/black wire to the fusebox while lvg it in gear to jump it forward. As soon as I saw this I told him to stop b/c thats not good lol so I ended up pushing it. This is the loose wire from taking a look at the wiring diagram it goes straight from the starter to the front to a 8 pin connector which ends at the ignition switch. I have to find that 8pin connector. I hope the force is w/me lol

      spark, fuel, compression....

      Its clear to see the previous owner was on the right path to getting it running, and I am confident you will find where he went off the track. Get that tank drained, swap in the new parts you got and let the real troubleshooting begin.

      Glad to see you using some of my time savings tips. GL.

      that isn't going to happen without a lot of body work. quite a bit of difference between an early and late bay.

      you've already got yourself a fairly rare bumper setup in the world of baywindows...personally i'd be happy with that

      Yeah dude I had to clip that section on my 78,wasn't easy especially if you don't have a donor...but to go retro anti to bad as your gonna wanna cut the impact bar out and cap it with a older donor flat panel...locate some bumper bracket sections and brackets and your off to the races

      Rubber impact strip A1? That's why right? Pretty cool too it finishes the bumper as mine looks like a--.

      When you goto lower this thing your in for a long ride bro'. Not to mention the cost of getting the motor and drivetrain up to par..these f--kin things are expensive compared to the type1 world.
