Re: Ssvc lineup at camperjam

I think you can turn up for the Show n Shine - but some categories were getting quite popular, so David Eccles who runs the SnS asked if people could prebook to make it a bit easier on the day. I just turned up last year I think.

Re: Barn doors opening... ...whilst driving!

I've had similar - the doors don't open, but the handle slowly drops over a long journey, then the doors start to squeak like mad until it drives me crazy enough to stop and relatch the door fully. I can stop it by locking the side doors with the key, as this locks the handle (my van is later, a 67)...

Re: leaking gearbox

It’s probably the axle tube gaiters. Notorious leak spot, especially if they are the split type with a row of small bolts along a seam. Mine ...... out took multiple attempts to stop it, but have finally cured it now.

Re: Non starter

I have Kadrons on mine - and I love them - I think they a great simple carbs and they transformed my bus. Check you don't have fuel dripping out of the brass pipe (accel pump) that goes into the throat of the carb, if this is dripping the accel pump is still over adjusted too far - common! Have you ...
