My understanding is it can be significantly improved by a bit of adjusting. Derek does
make replacement better designed linkages as well.

I am not familia with the Talbot linkage but if it has nylon bushes in it anywhere then
these should *not* be greased, but kept dry and free of grease.as the grease retains
dirt and grit that accelerates wear.

This is a common problem with older VW LT gearbox linkages.

Dear Hilary,
I just knew you'd have the answer to all the troubles on his site.
I think Andy had a moment of perfect 20/20 vision when he set this
site up, so there's nothing wrong with his site - 'cept I'm on it!
And if I had all the answers to all the troubles, we wouldn't have
two grown men with an excess of toblerone sitting in opposite corners
refusing to join in any more.....very sad. :-(

I wish I
had the time that you seem to have to devote to it!
You'll have to put that down to four things....rotas, adrenalin,
boredom and the Army. Rotas, because when Himself is working and I'm
not, then I've got to do sumpfink. We don't have satellite TV and the
other choice isn't much of one! Adrenalin; when I'm working, it takes
a long time for me to wind down after driving and dealing with
customers, so I read the List - and I'm quite a fast reader! Boredom -
you know what they say about the devil making work for idle hands to
do - and the Army taught me to type many years ago, so here I am,
idly typing away....But never mind, I have tennis elbow, and it seems
to be spreading south to my hand, so I have to limit my time on this
for a while, I think. So relief is at hand, so to speak!

luv you Hilary!
Aaaaaw...<blush>..... <VBG> Now, if you take your tongue out of

when you're buying gebrauchte, or used, the German equivalent of

Ford V4 pressure switch

Martin Villar <MARTIN@...>
 

Duncan
tried local dedicated Ford commercial spares place but no joy. Then I thought of the mechanic on the storage site I used until recently, he has a lot of older Transit ambulances vans etc.
He knows he hasnt got the pressure switch but said he feels sure that the Granada of the same year used the same block and oil pressure switch. Also I remember I had a Ford Corsair 2000 V4 which ran through a Transit gearbox so maybe that was the same switch.
He says he has some bits for the MK 1V4, so if you would like to ring him on 01268 725195, his name is Andy and he is a very helpful guy.

been talking to richard at stratford show this morning, didnt see
postings before going, mine is a 50 litre tank which allows 44 litres
of gas, tank not much heavier than a 13 kg bottle which now will not
need to be carried, so whilst a bit heavier not a major problem. i
still carry 6kg bottle for emergencies. tank is fitted under chassis
with no part of it protruding below. seems a more cost effective way
than paying £250 for a refillable 13kg bottle

Club houses can get too noisy. We stayed at a site with a no noise

'till past midnight!!!!!!
Yep - well big commercial sites are out then.

What's on at Pembrey. BTCC or something else? We have stayed at the
pembrey site. It's very nice. Takes your bikes if you can. The beach
is amazing. We have never been to the circuit though.
We used to follow BTCC and F1, and we've been to Le Mans.... but
it's
difficult going trackside with a two year old but we hope to get to
a
few BTCC races this year and back to Le Mans next year. F1 is out as
it's too expensive these days
24/25 Aug BARC Classic Race meeting, I race a Classic Clubmans car,
the Motorhome is our tow vehicle. The meeting is based around club
championships of the 70's, including touring cars, single seater,
sports racing. There's a lot of meetings on at Pembrey and other
circuits throughout the year. BTCC, F1 etc is just the big busines
end of motor racing, more a business than a sport.

go to http://www.Classic-Clubmans.co.uk for dates and venues. If you
ever get to a meetng drop by the paddock and say hello !

One problem we'll have in Aug is finding somewhere to keep the race
car trailer whilst we're on holiday ! Which might restrict us to one
venue btuthen we only have 4 days.

Certainly found lots of site links now so thanks to everyone for
that, have also just been given the 2000 edition of the big book of
sites. Think we might well join the C&CC for a year, the CL sites
look good and you have to be a member anyway.
Just got to choose now

I checked reverse in the car park... All ok. Into reverse no problem.

I drove him home, got him outside the house and NO REVERSE.
I tried all the tricks previously mentioned on this list but no use.

In the end I had to REALLY whack the stick across to get it in.

What a bunch of W***ers!

We are not going away this weekend (change of plan), so I will have a
go at the adjustment told to me by Derek.

If what Derek says is true, then it's probably due to my road being on
a camber. Dereks mod should do the trick.

I'll let you know how the adjustment goes.

Always a difficult decison what to add to your van, how much you

putting on another Van later on, (applies to evry thing from insitu

Hi, we are members of the C.C.C and like you are not really rally
type people. One of the main reasons we are in the club is that
their Carefree service has saved us alot of money on ferry
bookings in the past. We do sometimes use their club sites but
dont go out of our way just to find one. However the Big Sites
book that you automatically recieve when a member can come in
very useful as it lists just about all the camp sites in the country
with comments about facilitys etc.

Probably a silly question but where do the permanent tanks fit ?
under the chassis or in the gas locker ?

If its in the gas locker, it would be easier and cheaper to purchase
a refillable "portable" tank.


Part of my plans was to free up some storage space so was expecting
the tans to be slung under the chassis.
=============================================================
Tony,
If you have the payload the idea place is under the chassis.
On our Laika we had two sixty litre tanks slung either side of the chassis
but we did have a "Chassis" and a 1000 kg payload. It's no good freeing up
space
in your gas bottle locker if you have no payload left.
It is possible to get a refillable gas bottle installed in the locker and a
external
filling point. This means the refillable bottle stays in situ while filling
but can be removed
if and when you change vans. The external filling point stays with the van
though.

Don
