1.6TD engine idle speed?

Hi. Please make a cup of tea before reading this. I Haven't been around lately as my van seems to have spent the better part of this year so far in the garage. I'm wondering what my engine idle speed should be as it now feels to be to high, but heres a (long) explanation why. I've had a new cyl/head...

Re: Eberspacher, is this normal?

What with christmas and all the relative expenses and time sapping family commitments, I have only just got back to taking care of my van. I have fitted a new 75ah leisure battery as this was the biggest I could find to fit in the compartment under the seat and guess what? It hasn't cured my eberspa...

Re: Eberspacher, is this normal?

Thanks Martin (California Dreamin). I've just checked connections at the battery (seem ok), and the two fuses on b-pillar, i've retensioned the springs and the fuses seem clean enough, but i think i'll go and get a packet of new ones anyway. However both fuses are the same (red 16a) is this correct....

Re: Eberspacher, is this normal?

i may haved sussed what's wrong. The leisure battery isn't a leisure battery it's a 41ah car battery, presumably fitted due to it's compact size and lack of space in battery box under seat. As this is needing to be rectified i'll see if this helps the Eberspacher problem

Re: Italy

Hi MIckeyflyn, Go for it, Italy is a fantastic place to tour. We spent 5 weeks doing so about 4 years ago. From Switzerland we entered Italy via the St Bernard Pass (which I believe featured in the opening sequence of the "Italian Job" . A trip through The Lakes, down the East Coast to Pug...

Re: Box / buddy seat for Porta Potty 365

# ghost123uk Re; poor woodworking skills. In a previous van, when making a loo box, I worked out the dimensions of the sides base and lid, then got B&Q to cut it from a single sheet of mdf on their big industrial jig. Took them a couple of minutes and saved me a lot of effort and dodgey edges. I...

Eberspacher, is this normal?

Ive had my van for about 5 months now and was resigned to my Eberspacher not working. it only seemed to blow cold air. But, now by accident ive found that if i turn on the engine on first and then turn on the Eberspacher it will blow hot air and continues to do so after i turn the engine off. I pres...

Re: i want to buy mercedes wheels

Thanks guys. Unfortunately I didn't get lucky with the Merc' wheels, so I'm still looking around. I have my eyes on a set of 15" Porsche rims, but once again I'm having to wait on the seller finding out the ET for me. I have 17" inch Porsche on at the moment with adaptors so I'm hopeful ev...
