Re: Accelerator Cable Replacement

Brill, will have another check of the pipe prior to feeding in the new cable. I've not felt it being sticky and was pretty responsive...right up until I eased off down a hill and reapplied the power going up the other side. Pedal to the floor and the van eased to a stop :/

Accelerator Cable Replacement

Would I be correct in assuming that the throttle cable and sleeve sits inside a larger piece of conduit from the pedal to the rear cross member where it meets the conduit which comes with the new cable? If so how likely is the sleeve going to need replacing? I haven't removed the old cable yet, is i...

Re: Oh dear have I messed up the gears

Might be worth having mole grips and spanners easily accessible as could need a tweak 1 spline either way. The wiki is good, not sure if it was there or in an old post where Aiden gave a really simple method to set up.

Enjoy the holiday.

Re: removing hi top

Father in law suggested that polypropylene packing tape you get on parcels/pallets when I mentioned sikaflex removal to him last week. Not tried it but in theory sounds plausible and save a bit of paintwork.
