Re: Adjusting Doors - So they shut first time !!!

When I did my doors, the passenger one ... closes perfectly with the lightest of touch. I didn't even think that was possible. Did you rebuild the latch as well?

Re: Adjusting Doors - So they shut first time !!!

When I did my doors, the passenger one took 10 minutes and closes perfectly with the lightest of touch. 8 years alter and I'm still working on the drivers door. But as already said, if mirror hinge is loose, you can buy oversized mirror arms. Window frame alignment as well makes a difference. Hinges...

Gearbox drain plug or plugs?

I have 1967 gearbox on bus with reduction boxes.
I can only see one drain plug.
Online, lots of pictures show 2.
Have I got a different gearbox or is the second drain plug there but I need new glasses to see it?

Re: OCD XVI registration closed... we are full!

Buzz, it's full because you organise such a fantastic trip that we all want to be a part off.
While you keep organising it, we will all keep coming.

If I stop for 20 mins, its not there at all when i restart and press clutch pedal down. I think i've ruled out clutch release bearing, and when I check...

Re: do buses ALWAYS smell of petrol?

If you fill your bus up before you put it away in the garage, the fuel expands as it warms up , comes up the filler neck and then down the overflow.
You may even see a mark on the floor just behind the rear wheel, where the over flow pipe drops the fuel in the overflow on the floor.

Re: engine advice

We've got a 1641 and reduction boxes. Done Cornwall with 4 adults and all camping gear. You can't do 70, but what's the rush?
Make the journey part of it.
