Re: Generator light

Thanks Peter. I've noticed that when the ignition is turned on the light goes out, only to come on again when ignition is off! Does this sound like a wiring issue?? It seems to do it after the engine has been for a drive, so revving high. if I just go out and start the engine it doesnt always happen!

poor running

BUT when I drove it to the MOT station it struggles to cruise and gets bogged down. If you keep the re...

Generator light

Hi all I noticed yesterday that the light on the bottom left was still on after I had removed the key! I looked it up and it looks to be the generator warning light. When I put the key in and turn ignition on it sometimes goes out and stays out when the key is out but then the next time may stay on ...

Re: Registering US Import

Sounds like it should be easy enough then :) Ive sent the importer a quick email so hopefully they will reply quickly!

I guess there is nothing stopping me doing my own bill of sale if needed! :D

Re: Registering US Import

Great ill get onto them for a letter then..

No need for a bill of sale then? As I never paid the seller only the importer so does the letter cover the bill of sale issue as well?


Thanks Jonny

Re: Painting advice

I'm not much help as never done it before myself but did watch a video of a Guy painting one and he primed the top half, then top coated the roof including gutter inside and out. Then once dried masked the roof before doing the sides. I'm sure someone will be along with a definite answer soon. I'll ...

Wiper motor. ?

Can anyone identify this wiper motor?

It came with a 67 bus but the spindles are not even close to lining up correctly.

I can't find a code on the motor either.

Wiper motor 67

I need some help please guys, I have a 12 volt 67 split bus that I'm currently getting ready for its MOT. One thing that's missing although not strictly needed for the MOT (has safari windows) is wipers!

No motor or mechanism under the dash. :(

Can I use the mechanism/motor from others years?
