That bracket could use a little Krylon.
c'mon dude can we get somewhere with this thread bro?
in the time it took to do what you've done...i have lowered my bus,converted it to a 4 spd and also got 3 cars ready for paint!!!!!
lets go man!!!
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.
I do hope you realize the amount of cutting and reworking of the engine compartment that is going to be required to make that vr fit. Heck an aba swap won't fit back there without modifications to the firewall and gas tank. I'm not discouraging you I'm just saying I hope you are prepared to overcome the issues that are going to come up. This isn't going to be anything remotely close to a 4 banger counterflow swap in terms of the installation.
well i' not gonna rain on any parades here but as a guy who kinda has a grip on this kinda s--t
i' have painted two full blown cars,rebuilt 2 motors,run a business daily and even had time to f--k with mu hot rod and blast it out for a ride...
dude you need to light a fire under your a-- and get some s--t done!!!
seriously....not everything involves money just good old fashion hard work,gettin down and dirty and cleaning!!!
just sayin bro!!!!
