Re: Syncro engine swap - DJ to AGG

Ahh! OK Patrick.
I hadn't realised just how close we are to the Tier 2/3 boundary.
Keep safe & well.

Re: Syncro engine swap - DJ to AGG

Congratulations, Patrick.

Now that both your vehicle & meeting people are legal, you could pop over for a test run and a chat?

Re: Syncro engine swap - DJ to AGG

That's a shame Patrick. But if that's all there is to find, it's pretty good.

Yes, thanks, mine passed OK despite my concerns about the, ever present, rear hub bearing play.

AGG Engine Conversion - Information & Assistance

Hi Folks, A lot of the interest in this conversion arose from the reports I posted here after doing my conversion nearly 10 years ago. At that time I offered to email out a batch of documents I had created during my conversion which included details like the engine wiring, etc. I am still receiving ...

Re: Pop-Top Rubber Seal - Sticking to van roof

Thanks for your thoughts, guys. Cleaning the rubber - will only have been water or perhaps a weak mix of car shampoo. Tissue paper - yes probably worth a try to detect any obvious 'gunk'. The edge rubbers are about four years old. The pop top was built in 2015 and first used during the August Bank H...

Pop-Top Rubber Seal - Sticking to van roof

Hi, can anyone offer any proven techniques to prevent the rubber seal around the pop-top from sticking to the van roof when it is not opened for a few weeks? Mine has occasionally been so well stuck that it pulls off the edge of the pop-top instead of lifting with it. I have tried cleaning both the ...

Re: Reupholstered seats

I fitted a new cushion into the seat squab of one front 'captains' seat - mainly because the previous owner had broken the door side 'wing' of the cushion, presumably by repeatedly turning and sliding over the edge to drop out the door. Yes, it makes a difference, providing better support. I ended u...

Re: Replacing the dashboard plastic PCB

Right, we connected up the dash this morning and tested everything. All fine except that the DOPS/B of D sounded above 2krpm! It is just possible that this was happening before but I have had a tiny piece of card between the oscillating contacts to 'silence' it for some time (since I had a cable sna...

Re: Replacing the dashboard plastic PCB

OK I have sorted the clock polarity - by the simple (once remembered!) method of using a multi-meter on the foil PCB. Once I'd overcome the issue of a broken track just back from the edge connector section I was able to detect links from the clock plug to pins 3 (ground) & 5 (clock). So, looking...

Re: Replacing the dashboard plastic PCB

My son & I have been assembling our unit today and have a couple of questions for those who have built these units for late diesel dash's. (Those with tachometers and DOPS) We have found that the three wire ribbon (red, orange, brown) for the tachometer connection is too short to reach the screw...
