    New to Forum...

    Brand new to the forum and brand new to "vanning". I've always loved vans, but until recently, I've never owned one. This is a 1989 Chevy G20 Camper Van which I bought off of my mother in law. It has the 5.7L V-8, toilet, full-sized bed, microwave, sink and captains chairs. It only has 101,000 on the clock and it runs very good.

    It developed a leak in the upper left window of the popup and now I have to replace the paneling and the upper bed platform above the driver and passenger. It doesn't look like a huge task but I've never done it either.

    I'll try to keep pics up of the progress once I start the repairs.

    Glad to be here and hope to find some parts over on the other treads...

    on closer inspection I found that it was a cracked plastic oil line coming from the motor to the aftermarket oil temp/pressure gage. don't know why I didn't see that in the first place. did the whole fuel and brake system so she's almost ready to go down the road

    Cool

    I have had very good luck with the newer electronic oil pressure gauges.
    They read very accurate.Best of all NO plastic line carrying oil into your drivers compartment.Only 3 wires.
    If that line breaks and you do not notice it.It can,,will keep pumping oil into your cab area until you shut the engine off....
    Its a "van thing". A life style you have to live to understand!!!!
