Re: Chinese diesel heater

I've finished installing one of these today on my 1981 air-cooled camper. It had a 'Remotron' unit (seems to be made by Volvo way back when) installed in the space behind the radiator grille, with a feed from the gas via a manifold under the sink. This didn't not want to work, is well rusty, and is ...

Re: Lowering Springs

Mine's an '86 Caravelle, definitely no lowering there, you could get your head between the wheel arch and the top of the wheel. Not a good idea though.

Oh no! Another coolant hose requirement

Hi Mine's a 1900cc WBX of B-reg vintage, not sure whether it's a DF or DG engine though A hose joins the right side of the carb [looks like to the auto-choke temp sensor] down to the firewall-side of the inlet manifold.
