What threw me off was the 2180 part. 2180 is a 82 x 92 type 1 engine.

I also didn't like the looks of things around it, just pressure washed, LOTS of moss on the ground.

Repainted the wheels, wife made new curtains. Started cleaning engine. The breather blowby was just exhausting into the engine bay. Changed plugs. Scraped front floor section and coated with rust encapsulator. Some of the cool stickers on the bus. Stories to be told from this bus!

Well, two weeks ago, we drove the bus for a friends going away party in Lebanon. On the way back, blew the motor. I pulled the motor, flywheel was still on the trans input shaft! I took it to Strictly Foreign Friday, Mark will have more time to get it done than I will. We need to drive it to Maupin in June!
