It was informative until I read this: there is a black rubber seal, called Wassermanteldichtung (cylinder head gasket),
Why would the glass be anything other than half full?

That translation is a bit iffy, it is actually a water jacket seal.

 I was happy to read this..
In general, you can say that the whole range of T3 engines was solid, if the bus was regularly serviced and if the former owner has not misused it as a racing car. With a cruising speed between 100 and 120 km/h, a well-tended bus can reach an operational performance of 25000 km and more, before an extensive reconditioning becomes necessary. So you should ask the seller about the way he used the bus and about the consumption of the vehicle; that is an indication for his style of driving.
