Re: Wiper disengagers For a produced in 64, registered in 65 bus

There are two options and you can use either. The inside as you put it is an actual wiper shaft set up incorporating a disengage mechanism on each spindle. The other is a bolt on set up to the top of the original spindles. Don't know how much the first set up would be, but if you go for the bolt on ...

Re: Outrigger welding

once all cleaned off the outrigger is easy to weld back in. but the jacking point goes over the outrigger, so the old one will have to come off. best to just get a new outrigger and jacking point.

Re: Steering wheel prob

The steering wheel should have been put in the correct position by the alignment company before the wheels were adjusted. normal practice. take it back.

Re: Clunk from the back end

i don't like the sound of those urethane gearbox mounts. heard so many stories that they are too hard and give a lot of engine/road noise through the chassis. never tried them but would love to hear if anybody can confirm this.

Re: Top end rebuild

if you have damage to the top of a piston then it sounds like you may have valve problems on that head, are all the valves coming back fully up on that cylinder. is one sticking and possibly bent. This may be your problem.

T adjust the mixture, warm up the engine and when ticking over turn up the idle slightly, then turn the mixture screw on the left hand side , in or out, which will make the engine speed increase or decrease. Try to get the highest idle speed with this screw. when you get the desired point turn the i...

Re: Drain Plugs

correct. the reduction boxes also use the same oil. you need to check gearbox oil level with all four wheels on the ground or on a lift.

Re: spare tyre behind front seats?

Has your van got the rubber blocks on the bulkhead for the seats to rest on. They give a bit more room. :cheers:

Re: spare tyre behind front seats?

I would have thought that tyre would fit behind the seats. had a similar problem. my van had old 195 x 14 tyres on it and replaced them with new firestones. which I found out would not fit behind the seat. changed to 185x 14 firestone and they fit. :cheers:
