I tend to keep the front ones hard to help with parking as I notice when they have lost 5 psi or so as the steering gets a bit harder, it doesn't wander about on the road though at the speeds i travel.
Cheers both I was thinking it would need to be more in the rears with it being a camper I take it the tyres are good as 195's?
What sort of speed should the old girl be happy at? Will it plod at 50?
Depending on what axle ratio its running and what engine/ gearbox, my mk2 has the 2.0 low compression pinto, original 4 speed and 4.63 axle ratio and will happily run at 50, 60 is ok but it starts to feel like you are pushing it a bit.
I'll stick with 50psi all round and see how I get on
It's got the 2l v4 in it and a 4 speed box no idea of ratios etc I'll be happy enough if it will do 50 I don't want to drive it like a race car but then again anything under 50 on a motorway etc is a bit slow imo.
I haven't tried to start it yet or even turn the engine over so I still dont know if it's evengoing to run
I've put as much time as possible into him over the last week all the wheels now cleaned and painted with new tyres freed the brakes at the same time and cleaned the tank out and given it a coat of stone chip to tidy it up a bit.
I've also cleared most of the junk from inside so it's starting to look more like a camper inside as well
