Re: Random Oil Leak

Yeah if you have heat leave it alone. You're already better off than 90 percent of the Aircooled vans on the road. :lol:

Re: Random Oil Leak

Agree with the above.

90 percent of the time it's the push rod tube seals. Tell tale signs are oil slicks on top of the exhaust heat exchangers.

If it's on metal and it's going to be recovered anyway I'd just attack out with a rotary wire brush in a drill.

Re: Airbed that works?

I've had 2 Coleman ones. One which converts from an inflatable sofa to a kingside mattress. Never had any problems with either of then deflating and they're surprisingly supportive.

Re: Caravelle 7 seater coversion.

If you are quite handy, doing it yourself and building your own units then you could do it for £700 depending on how far you want to take it. The most expensive bits would be the rock n roll bed and fridge. If you can source most of your parts second hand then you're in with a shout. But beware, it ...

Re: Split charge relay

I have no mains hookup so any charging of the leisure needs to be through the alternator but I can't see where this device connects to it?...

Re: eberspacher fitting locations
