I would like a mobile version of the FMBC site, even if it meant losing ALL data and starting over.

Yes, it is uber important.

No, leave it as is please.

I am on the fence.

I have 2 "Westys", same year, same color scheme, 1 full camper and a weekender.
I am selling the weekender for $6000

or use as downpayment on a VWsynchro-camper (4x4).

I originally bought the weekender for parts for my camper, but then it kept running so well after i gave it new cylinder heads, new steering fluid pump, shocks.....

Ok. I'm always behind the ball. Nothing available at Paddy's wagon. Do they tolerate doubling up on sites? If so, anyone willing to double?

if I were you, I would first determine the following:

good grounds and ground straps (I once had check them with motor running)

good spark, is there power on the coil when the engine is turning over? is there spark at the distributor cap?

does the fuel get power when the engine turns over?

those answers will point you in the right direction before you start throwing parts at it. the trick is to look at the obvious things before considering a major change like an ecu and in not omitting looking for an obvious cause first. I understand how hard this is to do, my '85 was a daily driver for all 11 years of its service life

past busses:
'73, '85, '93, '93, & '02
