Lurker turned owner - 73 220

Unread postby rolleye on Mon Nov 05, 2018 8:59 am

I have been watching the forum for a while and now took the plunge. I live in the Kelowna BC area and am writing this in Lewiston ID. In a few hours I will start driving my new to me 73 220 back to Canada. I think its a solid unit, about 50K miles on the 318.

I will be taking my time heading back mostly because of the 72 hour period required to export a vehicle from the USA. Today's goal is Spokane and maybe further. None of the house systems have been tested though they look pretty solid so I may be spending a few more nights in hotels.

I will try to post some pics later today.

Biggest concern is the cracked passenger side windshield. I'm unsure if it will pass the BC safety inspection the way it is.

Not named yet but a few ideas bouncing in my noggin.

318 cu.in
Just rolled over 50,000 miles today.

Don't know if any of the house systems work but all/mostly there. Bunks removed but I have the hardware. Beds reconfigured - higher up and storage underneath. Undecided what the final interior will look like.

Will attempt to get the 4K onan going this weekend. Am ready to pull plug and pour a little marvel mystery oil in the cylinder. Will drain and fill oil from crakcase.

Wish me luck !
