I am brand new in the Westy world.

I just bought the van last week and I can't start if the shifter stick is in parking position (P). If I move the stick in Neutral (N) it cranks fine and starting of course.Do you know if there is any switch in the shifter stick mecanism that can cause the issue?

The second problem I have noticed is that in between 40 and 50 mi/hr under acceleration the whole van vibrates and as I pass 50 run very smooth. I have checked the axles for play and the seems tight. it is a same vibration like an unbalanced drive line. It can be from tranny? Hope not

Thanks for your help
