Re: Fuel hose problems

Thought so. Sorry but that's cheap rubbish from Malaysia and costs about a £1 a metre. Ask for a certificate of conformity for the R9 specification and you won't get one! We have genuine R9 specification landing on Thursday from Codan and we will of course be selling this without the VW tax :)

Sweet post Paul! Glad your all sorted now mate. Any chance of a picture of the dash clocks all lit up now at night?

Re: Hi top roof bed or not?

We have a high top and our children are 8 and 12 and both fit up there comfortably. We have a 1" memory foam mattress and then sleeping bags so they are pretty cosy. However, the 12 year old has decided she prefers a cab bunk even though they can both lay down and read in the high top bed. Our...

Re: Cheap dash cams

I'm after one after the 5 month battle with my last claim when some idiot pulled right out in front of us. Trying to cliam we were speeding :shock: Even if you were, that shouldn't excuse him from pulling out in front of you. If anything, it makes it even more stupid of him - unless, of course, he'...

Cheap Ebay Injectors

I'd say those eBay ones are fine. They are new too rather than remanufactured and I only found one comment on the entire internet (on Amazon I think) that was negative about SMP. Clearly they're widely used injectors and trusted in many parts of the world. They've been in business 90 years. Bosch? ...

Re: Cheap Ebay Injectors

No idea how long they have been on the engine as I have recently fitted the engine into my van second hand.

Cheap Ebay Injectors

Re: Crank pulley torque setting

I have the same situation.. and tightened it as much as I could with a breaker bar not a torque wrench no issues in seven years Thanks. I had to use a metre 1/2" breaker bar on my back with both hands and my feet on the chassis! It was a right battle! So I guess I'll do the same in reverse and...
