Carb .....

I have a need to change the 2E Pierburg carb on my van due to a fire. I have another 2E to put back on. My question is, the replacement does not have a tank return spigot, so I now wont have that facility. Will that effect anything, and is it just a matter of blocking off the return pipe to make it...

Re: How much to lower 40mm?

I know im a miserable old git, but when I replaced the springs and shox on our van, I stayed with original height. It made a lot of difference over the ride of the worn out stuff, and I can still see over the top of other cars, I don't have to worry about camping in a bumpy field .....................

Re: Heater .....

I changed the heater a few years ago, with a secondhand one, which was ok, but recently, I would turn the fan/motor on to demist, and after about 1 or 2 minutes it would slow, rattle'ish, then stop, and refuse to go for sometime. After reading the Wiki, what is th...

Re: Speedo jumping irratic???

Just to be a pain ..... I had that with my van .................................... installed a new cable, and it made no difference, was just the same......... So my conclusion was, that it must be the speedo.

3 to 4 years later on, it is still like it.

Good luck.
