Re: Ultrasonic cleaning : the benefits

I have experience of cleaning processes in an aerospace environment where I rode through the banning of chlorinated fluorocarbon cleaning solvents (CFC's). We had both ultrasonic machines and the vapour phase cleaners. The ultra sonics searching out the crooks an nannies while the vapour phase proce...

Re: Interior fit out

Just poking my nose in but where are you thinking between some seats plus a fold out picnic table and a full blown campervan fit out?

Re: Thermostat which way round

Just poking my nose in here:
Looking that part number up on tinternet I couldn't see a jiggle pin or bleed hole/notch. I have to wonder if this function is achieved by some other means on vehicles using this thermostat?
Anybody?

Re: T3 Rear wheel bearing housings

Hi Guys news on here, I've got a 1990 GL Caravelle, with the usual rear wheel bearing housing play. Has anyone successfully sleeved them to accept standard bearings or know of any oversized bearings available? Or is it a case of replacements? Cheers Ben This is a post of mine on that subject but yo...

Re: Rear brake pulsing

Might I suggest isolating each side in turn while the other is stationary. If not on a brake testing machine then by using a hose clamp on each wheel in a careful safety first private road test. This could eliminate any harmonic association between wheels by either mechanical or hydraulic coupling. ...

Re: WBX broken stud replacement notes

I believe this kind of work can also be undertaken by spark erosion but the job of finding the center is still hampered by the uneven thread exposure.  When one of the selector linear bearing housing zones on my five speed box became worn offset after a failed warranty repair - defo not Adan), It wa...

Re: 2.1 DJ idle/CO

So having a spare AFM air screw I silver soldered a metal disk to the business end and faced it off on my lathe sufficient to stop it contacting the throttle plate while admitting minimum air flow thus enabling me to meet the spec before bottoming out. Note: A small metal disk becoming detached and...

Re: 2.1 DJ idle/CO

Yes I went through all that malarkey a while ago including the Gunson and still finished up with the AFM air screw bottomed out with no headroom in the adjustment. So desperate to find out where the air was getting by I measured  the clearance between the throttle plate when on the factory set adjus...

Re: Pilot/spigot bearing puller

Or Grass Wow! That must have Bean what I got given many years ago. It soon outgrew my pond so I gave it to my brother in law who had a much larger pond. But he recently removed the pond in a garden refurb and it is now with a family who have an even bigger pond. I suppose the proper thing to do was...

Re: Black smoke / loss of power

[hr] My thoughts, l can’t see how black smoke that leaves soot that covers the back of the van is “not an issue” and I am not sure that overheating would cause it.  Did it have a significant shortage of coolant or boil over ,if not ,what do the garage think caused the overheating? My immediate thou...

Wonder if there is a particular brand that’s best. Can’t beat a bit of Mothers Pride 😆 What for eating or hydraulicking? For bread one could make the argument that it should have functionality as a substrate for the support of supplementary foodstuffs and for instance, and at least pleasant for mas...

Yes me too. Hovis white for my Beans on toast every time.  Anyway I wouldn't be surprised if the whole whole meal thing is just white bread with a hand full of sweepings chucked into the mix. But then I would be looking for factory precision just like one gets with Heinz Baked Bean.   (Other baked b...
