Ford E350 Corbiel 7.3 5 window
I've been in and out of this site a few times, but not had time to post. I am now coming to the closing stages of my short schoolie conversion (but i am aware the work will never really end) and thought i'd share.
I started with a retired 2000 Ford E350 Corbiel built 5 window, single wheel bus. After one year of blood sweat and tears, i now have our bus mostly the way i want it, and being used as a daily driver.
Mechanically, we replaced the batteries, hoses, water pump, rad, alt, power steering pump, brakes, gaskets, filters, fluids etc. Internally, we ripped it all out and built it up form the floor, adding insulation, a 2.5kW inverter, decent stereo etc.
The idea was never to go full motorhome, but to supplement our travel trailer space with a little more living room, while making a comfortable tow vehicle.
I've put about 10,000km on "Monte" since his rebirth and so far all's well.
I have benefited greatly from guys like you posting your trials and tribulations, and so i am happy to share what few nuggets of knowledge i picked up along the way.
Here's a few pics to get you going, and please feel free to ask any questions.
