Re: Fuel pump issue?

Do you know if it's the original mechanical pump located on the front offside of the engine? Many have have electrical pumps fitted, and some types aren't good at drawing fuel upwards. If it's not used regularly, it's a good upgrade as the carbs can be filled before cranking the engine.

Re: Window rot panel van - solution?

I have the same issue with my Holdsworth. I am looking at the possibility of cutting out the rot and getting plastic tinted windows bonded to the outside. Should be cheaper than oversize glass and no rubber seals.

Re: Seat Runner Fixing Method

Mine, when standard were spot welded. Probably about a dozen in total, in two rows. I assume your nutserts are much the same as a rivnut? Depending on how many are used, they should be of a similar strength. Especially if the nutserts are steel rather than aluminium.

Re: 1.6 or 2.0?

Ah, thought the label was just a random sticker, not had an auto myself. Both my Aircooled have been very reliable. Now that was tempting fate!

Re: 1.6 or 2.0?

Looking closer, there is a seal, but it is not touching the engine bay sides. Maybe the engine mounts are shot letting the engine e sag down?

Re: 1.6 or 2.0?

His 1.9 DG is an auto, no mention of the Aircooled gearbox. In addition to the retard pipe missing, the mixsing engine tinware seal is vital to keep the engine cool. Well, maybe not today, it's blinking cold out there! There's a ware line on the engine bay, so must have had one recently.

Re: Eberspacher D1LCC re-ignition problem.

I have a second van at my girlfriend's, if time allows I'll swop them over and see if the fault follows the controller. Both have D1LC compacts of a similar vintage.

Re: Eberspacher D1LCC re-ignition problem.

I've found the other controller on the P F Jones web site.They call it a modulator switch, code 292100300154. Its a pretty basic unit, no ic's.

Re: Eberspacher D1LCC re-ignition problem.

I don't have the other controller to hand, but its about 3" square, thermostat dial bottom right and power switch with red and green light top right. 
It makes no difference how long its off for, 1 minute or 1 day!

Re: Eberspacher D1LCC re-ignition problem.

Thanks for your prompt reply. Maybe I've read the label incorrectly. The top box has D1L C in it, next one says D1LC compact. The year tags at the bottom are 95,96 and 97. The 701 controller has a sticker with 29.2100.71.0005 on it. Does that help?

Eberspacher D1LCC re-ignition problem.

Hi guys. I bought a second-hand D1LCC compact some time back, and now have it fitted. It has an odd problem I can't figure out. When power is first connected, all works perfectly. But when started a second time, nothing happens. If I pull the fuse for a few seconds and replace it, the heater will st...

Re: Noisy Engine

Everybody who've done it say that dropping the engine is really easy. I can't confirm, but I do know that many hours can be lost cursing tinware in situe! Once out the engine can be properly degreased, and crank seals replaced, if not leaking now, they soon will. But to answer your question, carbs(a...

Re: Carb not drawing in air

As an aside, who are you using for your LPG conversion? My Danbury has what looks like a diy install that I'd like recommissioned. Sadly Campershack has moved too far away. What area of East Anglia are you from?

Re: Carb not drawing in air

At what revs are you seeing/feeling no air draw? At idle very little air passes through the car body, rather it is supplied direct to the manifold from the idle circuit. If the carbs are not accurately set up, one might be slightly open whilst the other is closed. But it'll still run, and off idle, ...
