Jon & I met another bus nut at the sales lot to look at Jerry's bus. Sorry Jerry, but you need to cut your losses & abandon this lost cause. Don't waste any $$ on a plane ticket. To help you out, I'll take care of disposing of this vehicle for you for a very small fee. LOL Seriously though, the main thing wrong with this bus is that I didn't find it first!
The engine didn't smoke like you thought a DD 2-stroke should when started in 40 F. Just a little black smoke & that was it! Jon drove it & said that he was afraid of the power. I was following & he didn't poke around.
Took some time to air up though, rose to 70 psi & sat there a while before it went to 120psi. The fast isle didn't work till the pressure went above 70.
Minimal rust, the only place that looked like it needed attention was above the blowers.
No curb rash either! The body was very straight.
Only air leak I heard was at the rear wheels when brakes were applied.
It currently has several empty gallon jugs of 15w-40 in the bay. That needs to be corrected.
It had a coolant leak that looks to be an easy fix. The interior was in good shape too!
Over all, an awesome bus for the dough. Way to go Jerry! I think I'll let you pick out my next one
The people at the sales lot were GREAT! No perssure & wanted to make sure they hadn't missed anything.
Jerry, keep us posted when you come to get her. . .
