I finally found a step van now what do I look for?

Just as I was beginning to think that I would have to drive to Amarillo to get a step van with a 4bt...... I found one for sale this morning on the way home from graveyards :D . Sweet! The only problem is the guy doesn't open until noon and I'm to excited to sleep!

Anyway, now that I have found one what do I need to look for when I go to check it out? Also what type of pumps are there, which is the most desirable, and how do I tell them apart?

Excuse any errors, I'm exhausted and excited at the same time. :)

Thanx.

What kind of pumps? There is near 100% chance that is has the Bosch rotary VE pump. It MAY have a gear-driven power steering pump below the injector pump, it may not. It MAY have a belt driven vacuum pump, it may not. It might have BOTH! It might have neither.

It might have a GM bell housing with either a manual or maybe even an auto trans. It might also have a Ford bellhousing adapter. Most were manuals, but there have been a couple with C6 autos.

It was an x Frito-Lay if that helps any. Or did they all have Bosch Rotary style pumps? Anything else to look for?

Doesn't matter, the configuration varies, even among those.
Some even had either A/W aftercoolers or air-to-air intercoolers, but not very common.
