Things to Look For . . .

30 Jan

The book How To Keep Your Volkswagen Alive – A Manual of Step-by-Step Procedures For the Complete Idiot – John Muir, was recommended to us by Gene. He has been a tremendous help with all our questions. I personally want to thank him for keeping Marilyn from buying every bus she sees! If not for Gene, we would probably own 6 buses by now.

This book has a section dedicated to checking many mechanical items before buying a bus. This included checking the compression. I agree that this is good information to know, but are sellers really willing to let a potential buyer run this test? Most of the other tests that John recommended are less intrusive and at least I would feel more comfortable performing,

Anyway this is a great book and it receives 5 bus BusJunkie rating!

    I had this book when I owned a 69 VW bug (great car). If there is still an option, get the spiral bound version, it opens to a particular page much better. The author suggests rolling one before starting on any major job: good advice, right?
