Driver door stuck/remote central locking recommendations

Really weird one yesterday. For reference my driver door has never locked, the lock button just dangles uselessly and the lock barrel in the door has never done anything.  So yesterday I got out and closed it behind me but when I got back to the van the door was 'locked', both inside and outside han...

Re: Weber Ignition Timing

Which Weber is it, the 32/36? For the basic setting it's two full turns out on the mixture screw, then alter with1/4 turns Thanks. I've noticed a weird 'whump' type noise a couple of seconds after I lift off the gas, could this be something to do with the mix being too rich or the timing being off?

Weber Ignition Timing

Since getting my Weber carb installed it sometimes takes a couple of goes to start the engine, otherwise all running great and if I give it a little bit of gas on ignition it starts fine. I'm just wondering if the ignition timing might need to be adjusted? I've no idea what it's set to at the moment...

Re: Oil leak

There’s also oil at the top, but I can’t see anything actively leaking when I run the engine.

Oil leak

Had a Weber fitted last week and the van has been going like a dream. Oil pressure alarm went off about 5 minutes into my drive this morning.

Look underneath and there’s oil p’ing out of somewhere. Any ideas?Image

Electrics

Seems like a stupid question, but would a normal electrician be the best person to look at the electrics in the van? Or are there people with more specialised knowledge who could look at it.

My 240v plug is not working and I'd like to get a proper solar system installed with controllers etc.

Re: Instrument unit

We upgraded to one of Andy's Syncrosport digital dash's which is brilliant. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20210410/dce2f319bdf343e4fda645c6e1d96344.jpg Sent from my SM-G975F using Tapatalk I think this is probably worth the investment, was it difficult to fit?

Instrument unit

Is it possible to replace the whole instrument unit in one go? My (Analogue) clock doesn't work, the temp/coolant indicator either doesn't have its pointer, or it doesn't work, some of the plastic has gone opaque and the whole unit is just a bit grotty. Is it possible to just swap in a digital clock...

Rear speakers

Where would be the best place to install speakers in the back of an Autohomes Komet? I've got an image in my head of an enclosure I could attach to the bottom of the bed, just above the back seat, not sure if it's something I've seen or just imagining. The usual under rear seat option is not availab...

Mysterious clips

Does anyone have any idea what the below clip is for? There are two matching ones, one on each side, I presume it’s something to do with the bed but can’t figure it out

Thanks so much to everyone who took the time to respond, especially Mocki.

No surprise that switch gets knocked out when the belt goes, it's a tight squeeze.

Re: Alternator belt issues

Ok, maybe not first light...

Just checked and  YES! it's the disconnected wire to the oil pressure switch. Can you please advise where this should be attached?

E D I T: No worries, I've looked it up - goes between crank shaft and water pump pulleys, black, grey or white switch.

Re: Alternator belt issues

The DoPs (Dynamic Oil Pressure System ) is not a oil level warning ⚠️ it’s telling you that you have low oil pressure  If it’s working correctly it will start shouting once you Rev above 2000rpm . Normal advice is to get the oil pressure checked before driving it . however, as you have just experie...
