Looks like an honest motor from an honest vendor so fingers crossed it serves you well. Fit a low coolant alarm if it hasn't got one, and budget for ongoing rust related repairs check around underneath including vulnerable metal pipes especially the one underneath half way down the drivers side that supplies the rear heater unit. Other than that, get out and enjoy the drive :-)
The main concern is that it should especially provide a very large budget for the repair while already invested everything in the implementation of the project.
Sorry, not got a clue what you're referring to, and you seem to have inserted a foreign object into my quote :shock: :? [-X

I must be betting word blind these days. All the advice on getting coolant alarms fitted etc. but I could not find out anywhere what type of motor this Bongo was running. I thought that only diesels had an overheating problem and petrol Bongos were fine. Must be longer than I remember since I sold my diesel to a chap living near Haddington and moved up to a motorhome to keep on the right side of her indoors.
