Planning on camping next week so i went to adjust the rear brakes only to find what I think are leaking wheel cylinders. Great!

Then I start the engine to move the bus and the oil light isn't working. Looking in the engine bay I find the oil light wire is missing.
While looking for the wire (which I haven't yet found) I see a nut is missing from the driver's side intake. Shocked What next?!!!

Too dark to do much more tonight. Guess I know what I'm doing after work tomorrow.

You clearly haven't paid enough attention to the bus, they don't like to be ignored. Crying or Very sad

They don't it is true; however, I've done nothing but work on the bus for the last two weeks. Shocked

When I stripped the interior I pulled out unused speaker wire and I'm afraid it may have been connected to the sending unit wire in some jack-leg way.

geez, speaker wire on the oil light circuit, You should turn your radio on and see if you have any oil pressure Smile If you have to rerun the wire, it may be a good time to run wires for the gauges as well.
