Re: Engine rebuild

Evening mate, bit of a trek but I would recommend giving Danny Wharton at Reichspeed a call; he's up near Gainsborough.

Re: Making a wiring loom – Part 1

I would suggest that you run the headlights through separate relays (one each for dip & main), have a look at this:

Re: Lower arm & anti roll bar fitment

Sorry Jim, bit of a failure on the description front, what I was getting at is that if you set the steering box/pitman arm in the straightahead position there should be no movement of the pitman arm, hence "tight". Once you start turning the steering, the pitman arm will have a certain amount of axi...

Re: Lower arm & anti roll bar fitment

I've been pondering this a bit more, and whilst I can't provide a solution, the issues that you raise may also be affected by other items; Picture the steering turned all the way to the left - the LH wheel will be at a different angle to the RH wheel, due to the fact the LH one will have to describe...

Re: Lower arm & anti roll bar fitment

FWIW, mine's a 64 11w Kombi, and I'm at stock height front and rear using all stock components, apart from Koni shocks, which are on their softest settings, front and back. As regards the "imbalance" in the steering, there's a thread on here somewhere on the subject of the "Ackerman" (sp?) Angle, wh...

Re: Lower arm & anti roll bar fitment

Have you tried FBI for an OG ARB? Just my tuppenceworth, but having tried both the Empi and the OG types (admittedly on late arms), the overall handling and feel was miles better with the OG. The Empi one seemed to engender a bit of bumpsteer as it was too unforgiving. I didn't change anything else,...

Re: Brosol carb lacks power

Best setup I found for a 1600SP was 125 main 125Z air correction 50 idle (the 90 degree one) 65 "power" (the angled one) Timing depends on which distributor you have: If it's an 009, 30 degrees at 3000rpms, all vacuum ports plugged. If it's an SVSA pre 205M e.g. 113-905-205K, 7.5 BTDC at 900 ish rpm...

Re: Wanted 205 distributor

There are more than several types of "205" distributor : http://fullmoonbusclub.com/forum/topic/144?page=1 You need to match the distributor with the carb and the appropriate engine, so for example a 1600SP can use a Solex 30pict 1 with a 113-905-205K and timed at 7.5 degrees BTDC at 850/900 rpm.

Re: Engine dies after a few miles

Notwithstanding my previous comments regarding the compatibility of the carb and distributor, given the recent weather conditions, ie cold and damp, this is starting to sound like carb icing.

Re: Engine dies after a few miles

Things to check: Is the fuel tank clean inside; have you ever removed it and given it a good shake and drain with some nuts and bolts inside? Is there a filter in the fuel tank outlet and if so is it clean? Is the fuel line (both hard and soft) clean and clear up to its entry into the fuel pump? Hav...
