Clunking - on big Exmoor hills

I've been reading lots of posts on here about driveshafts - or more specifically the CV joints.  Does this sound like a CV issue?  I've been hearing the odd single clunk when starting to reverse, or 1st gear forward - especially alternating between the two. Then in Exmoor on a 30% hill, when it got ...

Halls sender - fitting and timing

As per other post - I am watching closely a starting when hot / stalling issue on my bus.  (T25 1985 DG 1.9).  I'm only changing one thing at a time, and we're all good right now. If I need to change the Halls Sender in the future - I found and read the guides on here etc as part of the whole distri...

New distributor cap and arm - stalling when hot

Just wanted to post after my breakdown two weeks ago.  A few stalls over a couple of days after starting (immediately) and then a cut out within 1/2 mile of starting hot as I drove up an incline high street - tricky roll back parallel park.... Read lots on here, and used it as a chance to buy my gro...

Re: Van won’t start

Having similar issues when hot / restarting when hot.

Can anyone describe what a worm out cap and rotor arm looks like? Or is it hard to tell good from old/worn?

Re: DG 1.9 Engine Distributor buying- where? (Rephrase) - (ignore Bosch 009 topic)

I had some good advice and questions on the other post that is now deleted.  Can you re post?

Vacuum diaphram where please?  Meanwhile I will search the post history for Coil-testing, I'm sure it is well covered.

DG 1.9 Engine Distributor buying- where? (Rephrase) - (ignore Bosch 009 topic)

Re-phrase.  Where can I gat an original DG engine dizzy, or the best alternative? Have tried Brickwerks, Heritage.  JK has a 'unknown' manufacturer - is that the best available now? (I have trouble starting, and has died when driving.  Starting with replacement distributor as other elements seems fi...

Sliding door - maintenance?

I've seen a few posts on FB recently about sliding door coming free, bearing and roller failures.  I have mine removed right now for painting following restoration works.  Whilst I have the middle assembly in my hand should I replace the rollers as a matter of routine?  They look fine and roll well,...

Re: RM122 - 3 ways fridge woes

Can I ask, why 24 hours upside down (rather than less), what is it that is happening?

Many thanks,

Switched live - everything switched live is dead

If you have time - I'd welcome some clues. When a turned on the internal blower, it started up, then suddenly stopped. I'm sure I heard or 'felt' something blow. The van runs fine. Anything non switched live is fine. No fuses are blown. Headlights for instance work both as dim with ignition off, and...
