#ecobus Belinda gets a new heart (and shameless self promotion)

  1. Hey!
    Long time reader here, but haven't a lot yet. So I thought it was time for me to share my project here at The Late Bay. It was a little difficult to choose which part of the forum to post in. But I ended up here in modified. Admins, feel free to move thread if there is a part of the forum that is more appropriate.


    My bus is called Belinda. She is a 1974 1800cc Type 4 camper. When I bought her she had an ugly high roof that was a pig job to drive when it was windy.

    She ran and drove fine when I bought her. Started to act up after a little while. Backfires and not running properly. So I decided to rebuild the carburetors. After I did that, I realized that I didn't know jack sh*t about tuning and syncing carburetors. With the help from Ratwell, it did turn out pretty good though.
    But, onwards upwards. I like computers a lot more than old mechanical things. So I decided that I want to convert Belinda to EFI. Not the old (and to some, pretty bad) VW EFI. Noooo. I decided that I want to this with aspeeduino. An open source ecu that highly tunable.

    Right now, I'm rebuilding the engine, because of a pretty worn out crankshaft (crankshark).

    Somewhere along the way, I also decided that I wanted to make a Youtube show about my build.

    Here's the first episode. There are more of them on the channel.
