For your sake, I hope you don't share my mechanical abilities...
Greta at taking things apart. Less than great at getting them back together.

Mostly it had bad connections, but there was some things that needed cleaning inside. And I wanted to check to make sure the vinyl gear was still good. It's running now.

Finally got the webasto heater working and now my bus won't start. It cranks over 2 times and then the power dies. All the lights go out and my clock resets. And it will slowly keep cranking and kill the battery after every crank.

Throw a trickle charger on it and check the oil. These motors won't start if they're low on oil.

Re: Credit Score 1000 Bus

Good to know I now have a goto person when my Webasto breaks down. What is your hourly rate?

I can see why that guy only charges 300 per unit. It really doesn't take much to pull these apart. It was scary but simple. Very simple system.
