Re: Oil Pressure Problem?

Only problem with mine is that at some point over the last 30odd years the stock system was ‘modified’, so now have only one pressure switch, which am okay with tbh...

Oil and filter changed religiously by the PO every 6k, I’ve done the same so pretty much all I can do..

Re: Vacuum hose top of 1.9dg

The short piece that’s braided kind of..
Mine looks decidedly tired...
I know normal hose might collapse so would prob need some kind of reinforcement..

Re: Tailgate not sitting right after fitting new seal

During the vans refurb I replaced the majority of the tailgate seal track. Then tried fitting a new seal and found it fouling the tailgate at the side, thus holding it proud. It would still latch properly. Bought a different profile seal from seals direct and now fits perfectly. But if you haven’t m...
