Re: Paranoid about my engine

Re: Oil pressure and temp senders

You can get one into oil pressure relief valve if the bus is super low and will give accurate readings of oil. I fitted one on my airide single cab.
Kingfisher sells them if i remember right

Re: Engine Problem? Loss of power, don't think all cylinders are working

Disconnect no. 2 spark plug completely, keep in the cab or something. Drive it home. You should make those 150 miles.
I made it to Essex from Leeds.
Or get AA :)

Re: Engine Problem? Loss of power, don't think all cylinders are working

While engine is idling pull spark plug lead from distributor or spark plug itself (whatever it's easy for you) one by one and listen for the engine sound to change. Note which lead to which cylinder. My bet will be for number 3 cylinder, sound of the engine will not change. Piston or valve toasted. ...

Re: Air in the brake lines TIPS PLZzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Your "brand new" master cylinder could be faulty.
I had same issue, no matter how many times I bled the brakes they was not as they should, you had to pump them up to get good braking .
After swapping to another master cylinder. Problem was solved.

Re: Help with timing.

I think you are mistaking something here
Set your timing gun to 10deg for idle and check if it's right and the check on high throttle should be around 25deg.
Or mark those degrees on your pulley!
