Re: Steering Box Raise vs Rack Conversion

Ignoring the under tray is there room to mount the rack higher with the land rover shaft going through the middle of the upper and lower beam tubes? So you would have more ground clearance?

Re: Wipers - grrrrrr

The other idea I had but never tried was to use a knurled adaptor on the wiper shaft. Then you could choose from a wider range of wiper blades which may have better/stronger springing. Something like: http://www.macsautoparts.com/ford_mercury_late/wiper-pivot-repair-kit-includes-2-knurled-knobs-and-...

Re: Wipers - grrrrrr

I use my bus daily so I wanted working wipers too. After swapping things around I've managed to end up with a driver's wiper that does actually do a clean sweep and a passenger wiper that sweeps but does not clear all the rain off, but I can live with that. I also tried the Minor-style blades but fo...

Re: Cargo door floor edge trim, what have you got?

Re: remot eoil filter location

If it's mounted horizontally how do you pre-fill with oil (without spilling) when doing an oil change?

Re: Quiet Exhaust for a 2095cc Type 1 in a split

Does your remote filter mount have a tapping already or did you have to tap it for the sensor?

Re: Quiet Exhaust for a 2095cc Type 1 in a split

A question back to you - where do you have the oil temperature sender in your bug efi setup? Mine is in the rocker cover but I don't think that is ideal. My oil temperature fluctuates too much - it can easily show a drop to 60C, or less, as soon as I get up to speed on a fast A road. Then I stop and...

Re: Quiet Exhaust for a 2095cc Type 1 in a split

2007cc - storming! There are a couple of local hills that the 1600 slows down on (a lot). The 2007 just powered up them in 4th. Its torque curve was essentially flat from 2000rpm - about 80 lbft from memory. The VS exhaust was reasonably quiet. I spoke to Lee (VS owner) about whether he would make a...

Re: Quiet Exhaust for a 2095cc Type 1 in a split

I had a mild 2007cc engine with the Mexi efi setup. It ran but the rolling road guys said it needed a bigger throttle body/more air to get the best out of it. Currently the efi is transferred to a 1600cc until I find time to rebuild the 2007cc engine (long story). Biggest pain is setting up the cold...

That makes sense...I might change mine if I ever get into its wiring...
