Re: 1990 Singlecab II

I'd hazard a guess that those plates from the bulkhead were reinforcing plates where some sort of ladder rack/bar was bolted through

Re: 1Y starting problems

just a thought, you say you loosened/cracked open the unions at the injectors, all at once or one at a time starting with cylinder 1?

Re: Converting to automatic

it might be worth trying fitting a short shift kit to the gear stick to reduce the amount of travel/effort needed to select gears, in conjunction with a stick extension to bring the stick closer, did this to mine and made it more comfortable (subjective I know and I used a straight extension rather ...

Re: Gearstick extension question

i fitted a short shift kit after i extended the stick, reduces stick travel in all directions and much nicer to drive, in my opinion.

Re: High Oil Pressure

managed to find the oil pressure specs - '@2000rpm, hot engine minimum is 2 bar, at higher revs it should not exceed 7 bar.  mine is running in line with these figures when hot, although higher readings than i've had for the last five years or so since fitting a gauge in the cab.  prior to the sudde...

Re: High Oil Pressure

pump changed today, not by me, farmed it out to mechanic i use for jobs i don't fancy. has made no difference to pressure readings. sump was clean, no sludge build up or debris. Engine runs absolutely fine and is quiet, for a diesel anyway. does anyone have any other thoughts on possible cause? I ha...

Re: Vw t25 1984 fuel tank problem

Do you mean gauge is reading just over half/won't go any further even with a full tank? If so I had same when i fitted a new tank, the sender was installed incorrectly. When it's twisted tight the 'arrow' on the top should point towards the middle of the tank meaning the float sits below the high hu...

Re: High Oil Pressure

Before I go ahead and drop the sump, do I NEED the gasket with the baffle plate or will a standard gasket be OK? Brickwerks listing both

E D I T after more poking around online, I'll be getting the one with baffle plate

Re: High Oil Pressure

The symptoms were there prior to oil and filter change, oil had only been changed about two months ago but re-did it to rule out filter

High Oil Pressure

Oil pressure has suddenly risen and will (indicated on gauge) peak at 100psi+ cold / 80psi hot under load/high revs. Idle pressure when hot is approx 20psi which is what it always has been on the gauge (TIM gauge and sender). Previously, peak pressure hot was around 60psi I have already replaced sen...
