    Utilimaster used the P-30 Chevy chassis so it's a 350 in there.

    Did you remove the distributor? Chevy V8s have them at the back. I figured it was a Ford because it looks like the plug wires are coming from the front.

    You can see the cap at the back (in the middle) of the motor, it's flat with the 8 plug wires coming out.

    Hmm, I can't see it.

    Oh well, don't mind me, I was just being cheeky. Have fun renovating it.

    It's scary as shit and I haven't even jumped off the edge of the cliff...yet but plan to this week. It's super hard to push out of your comfort zone with something like this for sure. What has stopped you from doing it?

    Lack of finances and mechanical knowledge, mostly. Substituting a 24-hour Fitness pass for a built-in shower might make a similar lifestyle more feasible for me.

    I lived out of my volkswagon, but I was careful where I lived.

    I parked and lived on the University campus, surrounded by all the physical facilities for free, with social facilities for free, educational facilities for free, sporting facilities for almost free, many different clubs and societies on campus, and I even had a girlfriend.

    I took part in campus activities and was made a Life Member of the Student's Union.

    I could have tried to be self sufficient, but instead I plonked myself in the middle of llfe, and reaped the benefits.
