Re: Revenge of the monkeybus - Muddling through.

Ok, so finished fitting the electric vacuum pump and switch for the remote brake servo. I chose to go down the elctric pump route as it avoids having to tap into the vacuum from the inlet manifolds. Whilst I'm sure they probbably would give sufficient vacuum, I wanted to be certain that there would ...

Re: Revenge of the monkeybus - Muddling through.

I may only use one of them. You can have the other one if it isn't necessary.

Re: Where to mount Devon conversion badge

Brilliant. Thanks graham.

Where to mount Devon conversion badge

I have a devon conversion badge and a Martin walker badge that goes with it and they are mounted on a bit of door card.

Would they have been mounted on a cargo door? If so which one? Or would it have been a cab door, again, which one?

This is a type21f question for sure... :D

Re: Revenge of the monkeybus - Muddling through.

Installed the retrosound stereo with a retrosound speaker behind the dash.

Didn't go with the full blown sound system, as that can be done by the next owner.
