I have an opportunity to buy a '73 Bus with an auto trans, very little rust, but no engine. (Always wanted one of these. Have owned bugs in the past but never had a chance at a bus) Anyway.....what type/year engine will be interchangeable with this bus?  Not sure if I'd be able to locate a '73 bus engine, so just in case...what are my engine options here?  Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

There are tons of bus sites on the web. I'm sure if you contact a bus club you can get the correct info.

Did'nt the 73 TII come with dual Solex carburetors? If I remember correctly the 72-73-and 74's were carbureted 1700's. They were a little tricky to adjust if you did'nt have the manual, but were ok when adjusted properly. I've seen several of these equipped with dual Webers that ran really well, they're fairly easy to work on because no ecu and all the related wiring getting in the way and once the Solex's and their plumbing is removed, Webers will drop right in.
