Re: What engine bay fire system have you got?

Stock air filter should aim at the engine lid, or at least that's how VW fitted them. I hadn't noticed that in the owners manuals. Makes sense on the right side as the battery is in the way, but on the left it's a straight shot to the air vent. I'll adjust it anyhow. You could wire the coil feed th...

Re: What engine bay fire system have you got?

I used to deal with Firetec, but since the owner retired I no longer use their products. Which ones do you use? Also; most of the systems seem to be triggered by the fire burning a hole through a pressurised tube and that hole releases all the suppressant aimed directly at the base of the fire. Eve...

I had Pete at Cogbox do mine. Turned it round in a week as I needed it back on the road for a local show.

Re: Add 2 stroke oil to fuel???

I wonder if he was thinking of Marvels Mystery Oil fuel additive? (Or had been using it as a cheaper alternative like builders using Fairy Liquid in cement instead of proper plasticiser). Disclaimer:- I have no idea know whether Marvels Mystery Oil has any benefit on VW engines either, other than it...

Re: Questions people ask you when you're with your bus.

Q. Did you cut the back off it?

A. Er, no. VW made commercial vehicles too.

It's a ****ing truck. :roll:

Oh, and since I bought the tilt and bows I get comments like "Oo. It's just like covered wagon from a cowboy film." :roll: :roll:

Re: cargo floor corrugation dimension

Is this on your truck? Just to be sure, do you mean the treasure chest cargo floor corrugations or those on the load bed?

Sorry for the delay. Pictures of the fuel pipework route below. The yellow arrows highlight the metal pipe that is fixed to the truck with welded tabs. The horizontal orange arrows point to the front of the vehicle to help orientate the images. From fuel outlet (mine has a tap) to the fixed pipe. Th...

Re: Indicator relay help needed?

How many wires on the indicator switch and how many pins on the relay? There are different switches for different years and more than one type of 12V relay option.

Re: Splitscreen Single Cab Fuel Pump

I'm with Jim. I'd put a mechanical pump back in, but use an original pump rebuilt with Wolfburg West's new diaphragm unit so it puts out the right pressure. My experience with aftermarket pumps and rebuild kits is that they all result in hugely excessive fuel pressure, carb flooding and petrol in th...

Re: Warping rocker cover gasket seal

It could be crankcase pressure?... The gas may blow out through the rocker covers but because the gasket can't blow out because of the lip on the cover it gets pushed in as the gas forces its way past. Came across this explanation a while ago when trying to diagnose a fuel smell in my engine oil... ...
