Hey everyone. I have a 97 lifted jeep wrangler for trade that has 14,000 invested in it. Been looking to get back into a westy since I sold my 76 reluctantly. Anyone interested pm me. I'll send pictures and all the details if interested. Thanks everyone!

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?

I am guessing it can be done by connecting up the vacuum line and firing it up. the bus won't know which booster it is.

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

If you use a vacuum pump for checking the boostes put the one way valve on the line and draw it to 18 neg psi and shut off the vacuum, it should hold the vacuum. You can use a brake vacuum pump, but it might take a while to get the vacuum built up, just use the vans vacuum to pull it down to check it, like Oatmeal said.

gotta figure out something because the noise from the vacuum (cleaner) is pretty loud. Much louder than the hiss I can hear in the van

If the hole is that bad, it must be causing trouble with the idle.
