Changing Oil Pressure Switch

I need to replace the oil pressure switch that sits between the push rod tubes.  

Will I lose a lot of oil as I have only just done an oil change and new filter and is it straightforward to access?

Re: Alternatives to carpet lining?

I did mine (doorcards, side panels, upper panels, etc) using embossed vinyl, easy to wipe clean.

Re: Buzzer of Doom - again

As previousley mantioned, the oil pressure switch near the pulley should be connectng to earth with oil pressure.  If the wiring to this switch is faulty (or the swicth itself) then the warning system will sound at and above 2000 RPM.  Your first check is the wiring and then, if OK,  tesing that the...

Re: Where to route cables

Same here, the cables for the lights in the living area in my Autohomes (that are mounted high) run internally down the pillar near the middle window.

Re: Zig cf8 not charging from 240v

Here is the circuit diagram.  There is no capacitor, the Zig CF8 js quite a simple unit that incorporates a Bridge Rectifier, a thermal trip switch, ovrcurrent trip and a thyristor that pulses the output.   It is best to test and measure the ZIG output with no battery connected initialy to confirm v...

Re: Diesel or petrol rev counter?

This thread may be useful as it investigates converting Diesel Tacho to Petrol Tacho and also mentions changing the alternator to a Diesel type or modifying a Petrol Alternator to have a W terminal.   Its a long thread but might help. https://club8090.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=39&t=165030&...

Re: Speedometer problem

Sorry, I should have added that the securing screws that hold the speedo drive machanism can only be accessed by stripping the speedo down (removing the needle, fascia plate, spring and odometer assembly).

Re: Speedometer problem

With the vehicle stationary, the needle can only stick if the shaft that the needle sits on is somehow interfered with. There is a coil spring that should be returning the shaft and needle to 0. The needle shaft is not physically connected to the actual speedo drive mechanism as it uses induction to...

Re: Dashboard illumintation lights

That flap is the reflector and directs the light onto the instrument fascia, being white you do not really need the metal insert but you can use foil instead. That flap does break easily, if it does then use a strip of gorilla tape to hold it in place rather than glue - it has to have a bit of movem...

Re: Dashboard illumintation lights

Those metal inserts fit on the internal white plastic section. I have removed both as I have LED lights, the metal inserts are most likely heat/light reflectors but small sections of aluminium foil and a bit of glue do just as good a job and less likely to fall out in the future.

Re: Internal air blower/fan

Heater blower switch failed on mine, it can be tested and also serviced once removed if you want to check before ordering a replacement, the switch housing just clips together but take care not to lose the small spring inside.

Re: Worth updating Zig unit?

Looking at the spec suggests that there is little difference. Seems very expensive compared to the cost of a decent smart charger and just using your current CF8 as a distribution unit. Having said that, I used my van for accommodation 4 nights a week for several years and never had any leisure batt...

Re: Dash cluster wiring differences

If you look a few threads down for ‘instrument cluster ribbon’ you will see details regarding the differences between early and late vans. You will need to re assign the wiring in the edge connector to suit your later dash. This is quite easy to do as the edge connector can be prised apart so that t...
