new member with new (old) cve omni bus

hi
just got a 1990 cve omni and am embarking on a refit of the existing conversion. first-up is mechanics - need to replace the compressor belt and fuel/oil/air filters - anyone know where i might get them or what vehicles use compatible parts?

the air suspension is a bit dodgy, i think it's just down to the loose compressor belt but dont really know anything about it - if someone can exlpain the workings of air suspension and outline common faults it'd be really useful.

i can't find any technical information about the vehicle - if anyone has any info i'd love to hear from them....

much love

Cheers Ronnie

Ah, I've just 'spoken' to you on your other thread! Look forward to seeing some pics - the other thread would probably be better.
