Re: Cab light

So, by moving the little switch mine is off central, down for on all time, and up for on when door opens with a soft off after about 10 seconds when door closed.

hope this helps.

Re: 1.9 DG Engine cuts out when warm

Is she on choke for the 5 mins of running? so as that comes off she falters and stops?  does she start again for another 5 or is that it for the day?  You've pretty much replaced the whole ignition side of things, I think I would start looking at the black art of Carb.... If a pierburg  2E3 have you...

Re: KPH speedo failed MOT

Had a word with my pet MOT tester this morning and he said it used to be an issue, but it's not on the system anymore or at least it doesn't come up on the system when searched for. 

 Any MOT testers on here can confirm?

Re: Oil Breather Tower

Imageif you look under the top rim there is a small breather hole that opens the top of the diaphragm to atmosphere, clean it out and you can use it to check if the diaphragm is sound.

Re: Viking Roof Latch - need longer thread

Hi,
How about a length of studding from B&Q ,bit of heat and bend the end over yourself. Just remove the existing and find the right thread and away you go.

Re: Heater Cable Control Adjustment

Ahhh! I see...I must of been lucky and got it right by chance...i do need to replace the foam on the flaps at some point tho, but I'm not
ready to pull the dash and fan out just yet...I get warm in the winter and cool air in the summer, until the fan packs in it can stay put.

Re: Heater Cable Control Adjustment

I believe, from the one that I replaced, that they are a fixed length with "hooks" at each end. Can't see how you adjust them..Happy to be wrong tho.

I didn't remove the dash and did keyhole surgery via the ashtray and radio openings.

Re: Stalling after throttle release

yeah if you look in the dizzy at the bottom there is a plate which rotates slightly due to a linkage from that unit, that advances the spark as revs/vacuum increases.

That's how I did mine. just check it pulls, holds and returns fully. mine was very lazy, had a pin hole in the diaphragm.
