Re: How rare is this 67 only EBERSPACHER heater

I would think it's an Eberspacher BN4 or BN2 which are noty one year only and are rare but not uber rare. Can the seller give you anymore information. Sounds a good rpice, I paid £100 for one recently which was again meant to be working when removed.

Re: The one we have to beat....

Still Mike's I think,

2165cc with a turbo was what it was before but he has just rebuilt it and not sure now,

Pretty sure it has had the rear end chopped away and been fitted with ladder bars, not sure what G,Box though.

Worth a thought, http://w...

With adjustable spring plates this is completely solved as...

Re: Towing a caravan

It's not just the size but more importantly the weight that is the issue and with a caravan that large i would think your van would be too light a weight and have insuffiecent braking power.
