Re: Spot Weld question

Hi Neil, not sure how much you know about mig welding yet. But have a search on plug welding. It’s an excellent technique that will see you right for most of what you’ll want to do with these vans.

Re: What lurks beneath

But I welded 4 more the same back on . 2 per side. Think it was about 30-40mm long on the body and then comes out probab...

Re: Aircooled knocking

That doesn’t sound great. I know mine knocked 2.0cu when it’s been left a while to do with the hydraulic rappers losing pressure. Maybe worth checking the valve train.
