Re: Dodgy steering

I can't imagine that simply changing wheels and tyre sizes will solve your steering problems. As above, you should check thoroughly every component of your steering setup for wear, including wheel bearings and kingpins, etc, and get rid of any play. Also, make sure that your tracking is spot-on - I ...

Re: Bus cover, cargo door canopy

Pic of canopy, as requested.

The canopy is quick and easy to attach using the supplied wooden bar to hold the doors in position and the gutter pole. There are additional ties to keep the canopy in place during windy weather - these are not fitted in the photo shown.

Re: Bus cover, cargo door canopy

Sorry, have no pics as it was never fitted. Could possibly rig it up to take one. If so, I'll post the pic.

Check out April's thread - she makes them and sells them on here.

Mine has red and white stripes and is unused.

Dave.

Re: VWJim's dual circuit servos, AMAZING!

Mine is also RHD, with servo mounted on nearside (ie. opposite side to master cylinder) as there are fewer obstructions. It is mounted like Graham's (type21f), with the valve and pipe downwards, although I don't have any seat belt supports fitted. In this position the track rods would hit the chassi...

Re: CV Boots Failing on IRS

The Febi boot kit comes complete with clamps. These are thin metal bands which are pulled tight (rather like cable ties) and then crimped to finally tighten and lock them in place.

Re: Heat Exchangers.... and my latest WTF moment!

Your new ones should make quite a difference, particularly being VW ones. Interestingly, the slim heat exchangers used in Type 4 cars do not have fins around the exhaust pipes either, unlike the deep type normally found on the 1700, 1800 and 2L buses. I fitted a Type 4 engine into a late Bay some ye...

Re: Eberspacher heater info

Mine is petrol not diesel, but I'm sure a lot of the info is still relevant. I noted the fuel pump angle too.

I haven't fitted mine yet but intend to give it a test run on the bench first.
