Re: Prepping for the Journey - Picking up my Skoolie

Well... Sitting in Florida. The final test drive brought some issues up to the surface that seem to be fuel related, possibly injection pump. Not wanting to deal with potential repairs and risking a cross country drive, I decided to follow my gut and pass on the bus. It wasn't an easy decision after flying down here for it but I think it was a solid choice. The hunt continues!

Definitely! My guess is he had injection pump issues the more and more I looked into it. It had the VE Rotary pump. Seems to me like the pump is dying its slow death.

After reading more and more the past few weeks, I am going to be building my own centrifuge-based filtration systems. Not knowing mechanics and how this stuff works, the owner of the bus would buy or secure free filtered veggie oil wherever he went. However, he could have put oil with water in it without knowing any better. It's a shame for his bus. It's a nice, low mile rust free bus. But.... too expensive considering it could land me on the side of the road in 10 miles or 2000!

I am leaving for Tennessee tomorrow. I am down in the area for 4 days and going to be looking!
