Re: [MH-list] Talbot Express - radiator replacement

It's not difficult to remove the radiator. Look at the front bumper and
grill and you'll see the fixings to remove. If the rad' is not too corroded
a rad specialist will be able to repair quite easily. Look in yellow pages.

Looks like the radiator has had it. Anybody had experience of replacing
one or any advice as to best place to have it done.

Living in Gloucester and the main agents want £250 +VAT for the radiator
alone!

[MH-list] Butane regulator pressure gauge

Duncan in Bideford <duncan@...>
 

I am looking for a Butane gas cylinder regulator with pressure gauge
(indicator) for fitting to a 15 kg bottle, would anyone know where I
can buy one? all I can obtain is the basic regulator, the reason I
want one with a gauge is to have an idea when the bottle is running
low and needs replacing.

Thanks in advance,

Steve
Some camping shops sell a little plastic plate which goes on the outside of
the cylinder. It measures the difference on temperature above and below the
liquefied gas level. This gadget has served my purpose for about twenty
years. The only problem is that I sometimes leave it on the cylinder when I
go for an exchange. Fortunately they are cheap.

Otherwise, shake the bottle? :-)

Re: [MH-list] Digest Number 2497

Rich@ricksweb <rich@...>
 

We bought the Fiamma grip strips, which have been useful - except last time,
the van wouldn't budge and the wheelspin generated enough heat to smooth the
ridges out - so now utterly useless!!! The trick is to place them under the
wheels before you park...if you have an assistant.

Does anyone have experience of rear wheel drive motorhomes? Do they have
better traction (like the Ford double wheel chassis used byRimor)?

Don't know of any motorhome meets but it will be a busy weekend for getting
a pitch. We tried to book a C & CC site and they are fully booked for
service pitches over Easter. Managed to get a basic non electric pitch
eventually. Hope the weather gets drier or we will be putting our trackmats
and blocks to the test ;-)

We didn't even try any CC sites as they are usually booked months in
advance.

We stayed one night at Clumber Park C & CC site this week. Nice and sunny
(for one day at least) but had to put up with grass cutting and strimming
for about two hours and the site has only been open a week!! What is it with
wardens (sorry - site managers) and ride on mowers?

The software found both places and marked them on the
map but COULDN'T plot a path between the two.
TomTom is the same. It has to have a satellite position which is on a
highway. It cannot get you out of a supermarket carpark or lead you off of a
campsite. I rely on My Minister of Home Affairs and Finance for such tricky
sections of the route. :-))

BTW

TomTom 3 is available as an upgrade for 49 Euros, which sum includes
new/updated versions of any mapping you have.

do a search on 'wheel cover' or something similar. there are a few companies

Our van (a Laika) is based on a Ford Iveco Daily same engine.
Advantages of the Iveco are..very good payload, powerful, we have

Hi Pete, I made the double error of leaving my wooden blocks at home as
I
had purchased a pair of plastic ramps which were of no use in this
situation
so I had no adequate surface to spread the load when jacking up. You
mentioned 'grip track' in your posting, I read in some postings some
time
ago on this list that this was mentioned, where did you get yours?

Vin
I brought the grip track at the Lincoln Show, I like it because it is easy
to store. You can roll it up in a number of shapes to fit in any
convenient
hole. The one time I used them, they did the job, admittedly with the help
of a few bits of wood. If anyone else has used it I would be interested in
their views about its usefulness compared to chopped up bread basket or
those bits of plastic they sell which I thought a 3.8 ton vehicle would
very
easily demolish.

I don't carry those plastic ramps (made by Fiamma I think). I carry two
planks of wood cut to fit in my external locker and I chock these up to
the
desired height
to create ramps for levelling. I find they are much stronger than plastic
ramps. (I bust a set second time out) Planks and chocks can be
individually
used for other purposes and I find this a much more flexible solution,
e.g.
park on planks on soft ground, use chocks under jack and as restraint when
wheels need chocking etc.
