Bus with no power to dash...
Hi Folks! I do not have a bus yet but I am looking at one that is super cheap, however there is no power to the dash. The bus only starts if someone goes out back and turns over the engine (an 8 cylender cat motor). Once started it drives fine according to the current owner. The bus is an early 50's gilig that was converted back in the 70's and just makes me drool! The guy wants less than 2k for it and the interior is nice but vintage. I'm not to mechanically minded so I'd like to get a realistic point of view before I jump the gun and get myself into more than I can deal with. Could the issue be similar to replacing the starter in a regular car? Or would it likley be an electrical problem because the signal has to reach all the way back to the diesel pusher? I can't help but think if I pass this bus by I will regret it later but I'm afraid if there is something wrong other than the starter I could never afford to fix it.
