This page is a bit of a list of whats wrong with the van, items I plan to replace or repair and whatever else ends up on here.

It seems like a pretty good list, but nothing is really horrible. The big thing is going to be the condition of the clyinder heads. Everything else is pretty much typical wear and tear items.
