Re: Speedo/Odometer Not Working - MOT Due

Hi All, I have finally had time to get the bus out and have a look at the hub and behind the speedo and everything looks fine. I had a fiddle around with the cable behind the speedo and it feels like its attached well...... so I still have no idea why the speedo isn't working. :roll: 20170529_17055...

Re: Negative camber irs

Did you take the wheels and hubs etc off? Or just have a trolley jack on the arm, loosen the bolts and raise it slightly?

Negative camber irs

I have negative camber on an irs bus. The clamps are Harry Harpic bolt ons. I Have read that the clamps can be undone and moved to rectify this. Firstly, does the wheel and hub need to come off to be able to move the clamps? Secondly, how much do imove them and in which direction? Any hints welcome!

Engine cuts out

2110 engine with electric fuel pump. When slowing and stopping on a steep road in neutral the engine will cut out, if it's in gear it tends to keep running and then sometimes cut out. Both times it will start up immediately. It happens however much fuel is in the tank. Thanks

Re: Wheel nuts and centre caps?

Also cool air do the centre caps. If you have drums at the front you can use the slim caps or if discs you need the 25mm ones. 25mm also fit the rear wheels

Pop out Piano Hinge

Anyone know where I can get a piano hinge that can be screwed to the bus? I have got some that need welding, but don't want to spoil the paint.
