Re: Devon Quiz 13

Well I was convinced that piece 2 was an inner side panel from backward facing bulkhead seat (to fit under the seat and up to the long side panel or to back of where the easicool sits).... but have just had a quick look at mine and both sides have a different profile. It may be that I made new bits ...

Re: engine starting issues

...by the way I sussed out the ignition barrel was faulty cos I would often get nothing (no lights etc) or the click that you describe and other times it would fire up. I found that wiggling the key in ignition would get the thing going .... not a technical diagnosis but it highlighted the problem.

Re: engine starting issues

I am by no means an expert but I had similar starting issues a couple of years back and traced it back to a few things. Started by checking earth strap from gearbox and changing starter motor (I know you said you have new starter motor bit I did get a new one that didn't work out of the box...luckil...

Re: I need help with my swing axle

This doesnt help you big ash im afraid but for oilyragg i would recommend using some oil resistant gasket sealer on inside of the bearing carrier where axle tube sits. I know its a pressure fit with the axle tube but i found my t2d set up leaked gearbox oil from the pin. Only noticed after id fitted...

Re: Towbar

Thats about the same height as mine to bottom of bumper. Like i say mine is the fixed plate and the top of the tow ball is 35 cm from floor. I think the swan neck would sit at same height with same clearance underneath. I seem to recall that there are guidelines/specifications about minimum ball hei...

Re: Towbar

Ive just fitted one - cracking bit of kit and easy to install. My bus is lowered a couple of splines at the rear and i just went for the standard (non swan neck) under bumper tow ball set up. Mainly cos it was the cheapest option but also figured i could change it if needed. I have had no problems w...

Re: Anyone running with Kadrons???

As above - doesn't really answer your question as not a single port or 1500 but have run kadrons (40s) on my 1914 for past 10 + years. Always wanted to treat myself to something else but they have proved to be dead easy to live with - bit lumpy on start up but once running they're spot on.

Re: Rear Safari / Jail bars

Only thing I found is that the slider bars fouled the jailbar when window is in almost closed position. It was only smallest amount so I just widened the inner slider area so they could push shut.

Will get a pic in a bit that might make more sense...
