Re: Looking to buy a syncro. What's missing?

It's missing all the guards.  front, prop and engine. Not impossible to find.  I had a bit of a wait until a diesel engine guard came along.  Prop bars were for sale on here only a few months ago so they do come up. Looks crusty under there.  Hard to tell from photos how deep the rust goes.  Stood f...

Re: Bog Out recovery rope ladders

Certainly light to carry and could come in handy for other things. Easily transferrable between vehicles unlike a winch etc. Expensive though.  Might grab some next time i'm over there lol - or if like last time with madd traxx - not bother :lol:   I'd sooner not get stuck, look before leap etc.  Th...

Re: Too much rust?

You can add photos directly - just click on the [black square with white 'i' in th middle]  it appears just above the text space when you write a post. Have a good look around for what you can get for the same money. There is an awful lot of info for you to absorb in the 'wiki pages' on here.  Well ...

Re: Alternator light.

Low charge. 
belt slack, poor earth, poor connection at terminals are first things to check.

Worn brushes, simple and easy fix, change brush pack.

Re: 3 across the front?!?

I don't know the set up of the Gypsy, but is there anyway the side facing seat in the rear could be adapted and placed on a swivel mount.

Re: Camping box project

We ditched our 30 ltr 3 way.  It worked brillianty all but the 12v.  I got tired of hoiking it and out of the van to set it up.  It was so heavy when full and when we evaluated what we used it for, one half the size would be more than adaquate. An 18ltr Waeko compressor fridge suited best.  It brill...

Re: Camping box project

At a guess, you've done simillar to Winchweight/bucketbabe with your cobb and put the lid on before the stone is up to temp - hence its gone black.   That looks a beast of a thing now.  When you mentioned it before, I thought it was going to be more akin to the gas stove conversion you can get for T...

Re: Sliding door - maintenance?

On the middle roller check for wear around the middle - on the inside of the V - the sliding along the metal edge causes them to wear through and split apart.   Mine rolled fine (a tad noisy and rough sounding) up until it failed - the door dropped and jammed when trying to topen it.  Not expensive ...

Re: Syncro

Thanks was not sure if I was being led down the garden path. Cheers. Not sure what you mean.   You'll find most syncro owners brutally honest about owning one.  They are fantastic things - they keep you poor but they keep you smiling :ok The meets are great and you'll be amazed at what 'a van' can ...
