This evening at 6:30 I am off to view a potential van.
It is a Vw 1000 TD SWB 1896cc
The chap has put a new engine in this vehicle and it is running up 70k miles.
questions 1) why would someone put in a new engine? are there things that i should be looking out for ?
The chap who is selling it has many accessories on the van also.
Question 2) I have heard that insurance may be high UNTIL it is converted.
This is an obvious intensive to get on with it!
Any ideas who i should contact with regards to insurance companies?
I am fortunate enough to be going with a good friend who is a mechanic.
It may be possible that Dave from this forum, Friends with Martin may be able to come and have a gander also.
More eyes the better!
I am wanting to disconnect the rear courtesy lights from the main battery and have they work only from the leisure battery.
I have some 11a auto cable and a kettle on the boil if any one wants to help.
