I bought a bus (bookmobile) that I have not recovered or inspected. Bus hasn't been run in a few years and they are saying batteries are dead, sounds fair. They also say it may have fuel pump issues. Not sure if they mean lift or injection, but we all know which you would choose if you could...
Please take a look at the bus, was originally unfinished coach and is not standard school bus. I would love to hear more about it from those that know about these units.
1) What size batteries
does this beast need? I'll bring extra amperage to assist in the cranking it will take to flush/prime the engine, just wondering what battery fits.
2) Low battery can cause gremlins and oddities- is the Bosch CP3 finicky about electric power
, therefore fuel pressure where it may mimic bd pump.
I will change fuel filter with Baldwin PF7977, wherever it is located (assuming that is correct size ?)
Thanks for input.
