Skoolie Parts for Sale

Looking for harder to find Skoolie parts?

These are parts that came out of a 1998 Freightliner school bus.  They are all in good working condition.

The refurbished fuel pump was brand new, straight out of the box – never used, bought at an auction along with the bus.  We found out that it was the motor’s can valve that blew the motor up.  The mechanical parts are what failed, not the computer parts.  The other parts are what were attached to the motor, so we kept the good parts and scrapped the rest.

If you are interested in buying any or all of these parts, or are in search of other parts not displayed below (including any type of vehicle parts and/or accessories), email us at:  apinkbuscalledprincealbert@gmail.com, and let us know how we may assist you.


Important Points to Remember When Preparing for a Homesteading Lifestyle

There was a time when everyone was flocking away from cities to suburbia, but in recent years even that has lost its thrill. An ever-increasing number of people are seeking a simpler lifestyle away from all the noise and distractions that are a “normal” part of life in populated areas. They are seeking homes even more remote than the suburbs and a homesteading lifestyle reminiscent of days long gone. It may sound simple but there are some important points to remember when preparing for that long-awaited day.


Access to Services

This is perhaps one of the most fundamental aspects of choosing where you plan to enjoy life on a homestead. Unlike any populated area, some crucial services may simply be unavailable or so remote as to be almost nonexistent. For example, there are areas of the country where it is almost impossible for emergency rescue teams to reach you quickly. Services such as fire rescue may take as long as (or even longer than) an hour to reach you. Always have a family emergency plan mapped out for those necessary, but often remote, assistance you may require.
