Re: Fuel pump?

Changed the pushrod today, pretty sure it was that causing my issues. Van fires up straight away now and feels slightly more responsive. Will post a pic of old and new rods.

Re: Fuel pump?

Thanks :) I’ve ordered a push rod, some gaskets and a spacer from brickwerks. Would I be better with a high temp grease or white lithium do you think? I have both.

Re: Rear Trailing Arm 2 piece Poly bush

I've used Powerflex bushes for ARB, front bushings and steering rack.  The split ones are much easier to get in (steering rack this week).  I've not replaced the rear bushings but will use Powerflex despite the cost for ease of assembly.  No idea if they outperform the rubber but I'd rather have so...

Re: Suspension Upgrade Recommendations - Caravelle

-30mm combined with Bilstein B4 is a nice slightly upgraded setup at a decent price, I certainly noticed a good difference. I imagine the B6 would be a fantastic shock if you want a little stiffer and sportier feel.

Re: Best wax for winter storage

On a related note, for those with fibreglass hightops, I have found Finishkare FK1000p is excellent for giving the gelcoat protection from the elements.

Re: Winterising

not a fan of covers, wax & drive :mrgreen: This for me. Good tough wax like Collinite on paint, if you have a fibreglass high top, get the ladders out and clean that then whack a coat of Finish Kare 1000p fibreglass sealant on it(I've only thought to do this recently and wish I'd started sooner...

Re: Rear Trailing Arm 2 piece Poly bush

Right. Looks like I'll be going with the split bushes then. I'm guessing I'll need 2 x this kit ( https://www.brickwerks.co.uk/t3-parts/t3-tuning/performance-suspension/t3-powerflex-bushes/t3-powerflex-bushes/trailing-arm-bush-t4-rear-inner.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return fal...
