Can I Do This?
Im currently a mechanical engineering student on my junior year at university. My hopes are to save up enough to make a skoolie after my senior year. The only issue I really see, is that I don't know what Im doing when it comes to engine maintenance. I have a background in woodworking and other similar skills, so I can easily handle the interior, plumbing, electrical, etc. I worry that by buying an old school bus it will have a pretty deteriorated or worn down drivetrain, and I don't know how to service it. Did anyone else have this fear? How did you overcome it? Should I just spend a couple of years trying to work on my car engine first before I decide to tackle this? Is there someone I can take the bus to and have them service it for me? How cost-prohibitive might this be?
