Re: '67 Sundial... My first! Now known as Alfie ;)

No radio now :roll: Went back to original 009 dizzy, too ;) Think I'll just get a new loom and fit ...

Glad to say Alfie is rolling again.
Appears there was an old, redundant wire, shorting out and killing the coil!

Re: COOPS SCOOP : Our 66 Split thread......

The bolts off your steels were too long for alloys!... Now, that's confused me... I'm looking for a nice set of steels (with all clips). I thought it was a temporary measure/ trial, but you'll now remember to check, when you go to put the set on ;) Ahhhh yes Paul, it's because I'm running a spacer ...

Mate, since meeting you and seeing your superb bus at Vicky Farm, I can't believe the run of bad luck you seem to be having!
Hope you get it sorted quick, and get it back on the roads ;)

Re: COOPS SCOOP : Our 66 Split thread......

Thought I would put on these I bought as spares, all had new tyres on. Just in case I needed to drive the bus.

What's the latest on your motor? Was over with Dan in his workshop last week, dropped off a load of stuff for my build. All my engine parts, including the new Bergmann Hi Flow coolng fan kit. Won't be running heat exchangers on it, so need to get my Propex installed, too. New tank and oil cooler co...

Re: '67 Sundial... My first! Now known as Alfie ;)

Hang on guys, what's happened ? J Nothing drastic, fella... Bus just died! I initially thought it was a lack of fuel, as I was desperate to get petrol and only 1/2 ml from the next services! It restarted again, after about 20 mins, so I continued to services. Filled her up, fired up and drove off.....
