New Guy Needs Shorty Advice
I am brand new to this forum, first post(though I have visited often for helpful info).
I want to jump into the Skoolie scene with a short bus. In my recent searching, I found a very cool, though small, Ď91 GMC Vandura. It seems to have everything I want. Less than 10,000 GVWR, ~155k, retro look, solid tires, apparently very little rust.
There is one question mark for me. It has the 6.2 16v OHV Diesel engine and an unspecified transmission. I have no knowledge if this engine/trans combo is any good or if itís a failure waiting to happen. I am mechanically inclined but admittedly have very little knowledge and experience with Diesel engines. I need info!
I like this bus but donít know if it would be a mistake. Plans with the bus are occasional road tripping for long distances, some venturing into the wild, and winter driving, being that I am in Colorado.
Can I get some advice? Thanks so much for any help!
