Re: PENTA A.M.G. 16" 7.5J 5X112 ET42

Tried to fit my et42 merc alloys which are 7.5 h2 by 16 and they made contact with the suspension on the ramps?!? Mine are from a w211 estate I think but look nice, be a shame to sell them :(

Can they fit the t25 or should I have tried to fit the wheel without it being jacked up on the ramps?!?

Re: Buying / Fitting New Wheels on a lowered Camper

Just wondering if these wheels on ebay from a T4 would / could be modified to fit my t25 lowered by 45mm at front and 50mm at the rear ??? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/like/4-x-VW-T4-Caravelle-Transporter-15-New-Alloy-Wheels-Michelin-All-Weather-Tyres/181720355034?hlpht=true&ops=true&viphx=1&am...

Re: fumes in van

Thanks guys - found a rather long! thin hole in my n/s rear wheel arch - filled it in with fiberglass padding for now until I have time to get it welded when it's not in so much use this summer! Tailgate flush + engine cover seals look to be OK. Also found another couple of holes just behind the rea...

Re: bosch distributor connector - male 3 pin rectangle type

Haha I got it working :ok - I checked my cam phone pic and I inserted it 180 degrees out ... re-aligning to cylinder no. 1 still didn't work ... So I finally checked the hall connector wiring, and pulled off the original connectors rubber sleeve (since i originally wired by the order as they entered...

Re: fumes in van

Did anyone get to the bottom of this ?!? I get it too in my 1987 high-top water cooled 2.1 - and looking under the rear right arch last week I noticed a hole, when I look up I see the plastic vent section in the rear corner. I've also noticed a big hole in the floor behind the fridge unit - obviousl...

Re: Fitting a new 025905205af distributor - rotor arm alignment?

And it fits, the seals the correct type also (regtangular cross section as opposed to circular) .. just had to tap home with a bit of soft wood + hammer and its alignment is spot on - sorry JK you must have sent me the wrong item!

Re: bosch distributor connector - male 3 pin rectangle type

Yes I did push it home - the outside clip engaged, but I didn't use a crimper -- noted it was very hard to push the pins down inside the unit (once crimped + wired up), used a micro screwdriver to do this by pushing down on the back on the crimped housing (which just about touches the insulated edge...

Re: Fitting a new 025905205af distributor - rotor arm alignment?

See the difference in alignment between the new and original...

Could it potentially require a distributor for the original 1.9 engine as identified in the ebay item (especially if ignition coil is the original?!?) am stuck!
I will call Just Kampers in the morning to see what they say!
