Dynamo

I need to swop over the dynamo in my bus as the field coil part has failed.
Can I do this with the engine in place?
Or should I upgrade to an alternator?
I do like the look of the dynamo in the engine bay though.

Thoughts please

Thanks

Re: Engine cuts out

What happens if you leave it idling sat still on a steep hill for a few minutes?

How long is the steep hill.?
If you coast down out of gear does it still do it?

Re: Engine cuts out

When you go down hill are you using engine braking?
Does it do it if not in gear?

Power coat

Hi,
I am going to get my wheels powered coated, shall I get it done with the hub cap spring/ clips on or off?
Will the heat affect them or make them difficult to change?

Thanks Phil

Re: King link pin play

King and link pin needs to be serviced and adjusted to take up the wear.

Google it or look on samba vw.
If you have taken up all the adjustment then replacement kia the only way forward.

1500 miles between adjustment and service

Hope that helps

Re: Engine cuts out

What carbs do you have?
What pressure is the fuel pump set at?

Are you running a 009?

Re: Fuseboard melting after re-wire....

Unfortunately it's a modern curse that new stuff isn't made to the same standard.

Re: Fuseboard melting after re-wire....

As a sparky I would say, we see this it's caused by high resistance eg the fuse holder isn't gripping the fuse tight enough.
This causes the temperature to rise, the fuse will not blow as the current is too low. Then it lal melts.

Hopw that helps
