stock carb and intakes.

stuff that can be reused:
crank, cam, rod, rockers, oil pump(?)

case as far as i know is good. the guy i bought it off of said it was in good shape. he built it for someone else. the person he built it for said it leaked oil (if you saw the cooler you would know why) i don't think the case will need to be bored denis and i have been talking about that. tomorrow i believe, i am going to a friends house to make sure the thing is in tip-top shape. i am sol if i have to buy a new case.

essentially i think it just needs an over haul kit: pistons, jugs, gaskets, valves, guides, cam followers push rods, and tubes.

flywheel is questionable. it is a bit rusty.

that is for the motor.


i don't know about the master cylinder. i have been trying to get rid of the fabubus (which i did) and haven't climbed under the camper to see. what it even looks like. there is no preassure on the pedal. i don't even think there is fluid in the lines. i don't know. i just have anticipated buying a new master cylinder for it.

You say you have $1100.00 budget.

You can get brand new 1600 engine from Ronnie for $1450.00.


But then you say you need brakes and tires.
The brake cylinders are about $100.00 for the 8, rebuild kits would be cheaper.....
(69 has no booster)
I would replace all the rubber brake lines as well.

I would see if you can find these tires local to you,(Discount Tires can get them):


I have a set and love them, completely different bus compared to the cheap car tires I had.
(less than $400.00 installed)

I think that leaves $600.00 to rebuild the engine.
Do you have the engine apart?
Can you reuse any of the stuff from the engine?
Do you need a new case?
Is the case needing to be align bored, how do you know?
Is the crank still in spec. or need to be turned?

Than you mention valves and guides, are you going to rebuild the heads as well?
You mention cap and rotor (I would get plugs and wires too atleast) but not what dizzy and carb. you are using.
I am a little confused as to what you have and what you need.............
