Re: Brake pedal not fully returning

turns out just needed the front callipers freeing up, and the rear drums feeing up all had seized up a bit where body shop guys had left it standing. all good now, thanks to Haynes Brothers Wallingford.

Re: 12V Fridge Problem

My understanding of these are that they are three totally separate heaters, so if works on 240 and gas, and you have 12v going to the junction box on the fridge, then probable that the 12 v heater has gone.

Re: Losing power when I accelerate?

Interesting, I have just encountered exactly the same problem, was much worse when tried to go up hill and engine was pinking, was fine if I backed off the throttle. It is fine for about an hour or so then this happens. I thought it might be the chokes but surely they would have cut out well before....

Re: Running/fuel problem

I have a similar problem but no apparent fuel leak, has been suggested I look at the auto chokes, is your an auto choke?

Re: Clutch Part number

Thanks people, it is a quality one he can get me, Sachs? which I believe is what the recommended one is, just their system does not go back prior to 1990, and as he is staff gets big discount. :wink:

Re: Stereo help needed please

They will be doing one of two things, either feed in from a cd multi player, normally fitted under the passenger seat, or feeding an amplifier normally powering up back speakers, which could be anywhere! but I would look under seats, including back seat. hope that helps.

Re: No 12V power

Do you know the model number of your fridge, would think by the age of your van, if orginal its an electrolux RM122 which works off 12v or gas only. Did the fridge work on 12v prior to removing the zig unit? Where abouts are you? and welcome. :)
