    Thanks lads, went down to the show today, soon as the tank starts to get down it coughs and looses power.

    We put the fuel pump down lower but it's still seems to do it when the tanks goes about half or so under..

    Suggestions...

    Other than that the subby motor pushes the old fella along nicely

    Yeah mate, saw you at the show today... But only as we were lining up to leave. Bugger! Will hopefully catch up next time. It was good to see the double door in the flesh though. Looks really sweet! :cool:

    +1 on tank vent.

    The bus looks incredible.

    The tank needs to be able to relieve the vacuum that is created in it as the fuel level drops - basically it simply needs to be able to suck air in. If there's no vent (or it is blocked) the fuel pump will be fighting that vacuum... and you get a fuel delivery issue.

    I would imagine that your tank vent is either blocked by debris, or not up to keeping up with the needs of the motor.

    You chose EXACTLY the right wheels for her!

    That is beautiful, i would have been tempted to get the exterior to show finish but it really does look good just as it is.

    The bus has been off the road for awhile had a lot of issues with the starter motor that I used.

    Now have a cranky kit sorted and in.

    Also had dramas with pressure and was spitting off hoses everywhere.

    But she's back on the road and taking the old fella for a cruise to Byron this weekend.

    Will take some updated pics and post them up soon

    Bus is back and all running sweet with the cooling issues sorted, ended up needing a bigger scoop on the radiator. But if it is not one thing it is the next, now can't get third and fourth gear.... But am pretty sure its just an adjustment I need to check.

    Couple of pics will get some better one soon.

    Thanks mate... Yeah I thought the same with mine being wired wrong but it was the scoop in the end. The gears are working fine now.

    Old fella is back at the auto electricians now though to fix a few little issues..

    Awesome pic easo thanks mate. Do you have anymore when she was being used?

    I've had a heap of problems with the bus and starting to regret the Subaru conversion.

    Let's hope it's all sorted!!
