Re: Recon 1.9 wbx 1984 DF Engine code

Hi, as an afterthought, I should probably have posted this question in the general chat! I was also wondering if any of you alternative engine people might be planning to remove a well maintained and not too high mileage early wbx that is likely to be up for sale sometime cheers

Re: Recon 1.9 wbx 1984 DF Engine code

Thanks, its still available i think but history seems a bit vague and it doesn't look as if its been in a van for some time. I'll see if I can get some more info! It doesn't seem easy to find a 2.1,which would be very nice after years with the old 1.9DF but a good DG would be 🙂

Re: Recon 1.9 wbx 1984 DF Engine code

Funnily enough, I did think, how long is a piece of string!! Surely eight hours labour would be £400 @£50 per hour which our local camper man charges up here in n.wales. Anyway, having recovered from the shock of your initial estimate,if I changed to a DG would i then have to change carburetor and m...

Hi, thinking of changing the original wing mirrors as there is now an adapter plate to fit to original fixing points. Can anyone tell me how good this upgrade is and how suitable it is, thanks
