Re: Petrol Pump Clicking Off While Filling

I have discussed this before and the reason aidan gives is spot on IMO. My Westy is a nightmare to fill. 30L if you are lucky and then 15mins to get the rest in.

Re: Front suspension lower ball joint

A cracked LCA is not uncommon. Scared the "pooh" out of me the first time I pressed a ball joint out . It’s beyond repair. Bin it and ask around for another. You are in the right place .

Re: Getting the Panel Van show on the off road

Well must have put 100 miles on the clock since the MOT a few years back. Tank is now out along with engine. What are my options for replacing the sound deadening ? Will be staying diesel . TBSh the foam is still in ok nick. Wire frames not so much

Re: Front outer CV joint 16" w Diff Lock

They seem to appear in small batches . I bought a pair last time they surfaced on brickwerks and then they were gone. Don’t know whether they are only reproduced by GKN in short runs or they just find a few boxes knocking around the factory.
