      If you take something off that is going back on clean it and paint it. No sense in doing it twice.

      So I tried to drain the fuel tank and this is what trickled out. I put more in but it didnt pour out. Does this mean I need a new tank filter and pump? lol


      I think so!

      Can tell you this...your pump is gonna last about an hour,the lower end of the motor ain't much different with the sediment from the oil either...your fuel lines are gonna be dry toted or soft from the fuel turning into turpentine too.

      This is where it gets fun and you start to realize this aintwhat it's cracked up to be.


      Gave my bus To my buddy Skills,since he helped me with the build of the trans conversion and parts etc he had since sold it to a dude in jersey too.

      No aircooled exp.+ 78 Champ. Ed. Bus= Confusedsheelos!!!


      What were you expecting to see when you drained a bus thats been sitting in yard for who know how long?
      Non running vehicles are that way for a reason and very rarely for the reasons the sellers say.

      Time to decide what you want to have in the end and do with it takes to make it happen.
