Re: 67 Dashboard layout hazard switch or warp drive button?

I have a RHD UK bus - but they are generally all the same - under fuel gauge is Lights, then speedo pod, then Wipers and that's it! - both switches are equidistant from the pod. USA buses did have Hazards which is your second hole next to the wiper switch - no UK bus ever had hazards, but USA certai...

Re: Fitting of Accuspark Dizzy - Timing questions

TDC on the pulley is usually marked with a soft dimple which isn't always obvious... you probably won't have the 5deg ATDC notch - most pulleys just have the TDC dimple, 7.5deg notch and 10deg notch.

Re: agm viccy frm

We were relatively near the front of the convoy - prob about 30-40 vans in - we trundled along quite nicely - I agree the further back you are the more catching up your doing all the time filling up gaps.... What was the Convoy count? - it must have been close to a the record surely - I've never see...

Re: Best way to lift an engine by hand

I tried and failed to lift my engine on my own - but I am a racing snake! In my view its a 2 man lift. Most of the weight is the flywheel - if you can get that off it makes a big difference. Just don't lift/manhandle it by the fan housing - as that is only held on by 2 small screws and you risk dama...

Re: Insurance theft limitation ?

It is a daft clause as I can't get the bus in the garage with the roof rack on and I like to get away early in the mornings!!! If I park it on the road a mile away I'm covered but not on my drive, how mad!! I kicked RH into touch and saved £100 with Carole Nash. I agree with you OP - if we are goin...

Re: HELP SPARK PLUG BLEW OUT

Have a look at 'spark plug repair kit' on Amazon - there are various kits available - I'd be trying these first before writing off the head. Its wehter you can do it in-situ - but as its the nearest one to you I would have thought it's do-able. If you use lots of grease in the tap lands I would imag...

Re: Front shocks recommendation - stock vs aftermarket?

I have been researching shocks myself - I replaced my original oil shocks with some cheap oil filled COFAP ones (brazilian) - I bought them v cheap from DubFreeze a couple of years ago - they came off brand new T2's out of the Danbury factory - they had piles and piles of them for £20 a pair....

Re: ***Symonds Yat Adventure Campout 5***

I believe that the Canoeing Centre were considering closing the camping field due to it being too much aggro to deal with customers who did not respect the campsite rules and were generally selfish and ignorant (not the SSVC of course!) - and lets face it they need a bigger carpark! They told us las...
