I have a 1970 bus and if I can't get it running I have to get rid of it.  It ran wonderful for a year and a half after I bought it (it had a completely rebuilt engine)  and then I started having problems.  I had a new starter and wires put on, the ignition switch/wires changed, and the voltage regulator and generator were replaced.  The generator light is always on and the battery started draining when the headlights were on.  Now it wont start at all and if I get it running it dies right away.  Anyone have any tips on what I should be looking for? Any advice will help... I don't want to get rid of it :(

Well if the generator lite is on then its not charging the battery. Now the next thing is to check are you getting fuel too the engine, and or spark to the plugs. With a fully charged batery will it run? If not you have to check the tune up parts(points rotor cap and condencer and spark plugs). Hope this helps allways check the supid stuff first. later the Con Kid
