So... bit of a debate here of van name..anagram from reg.. Lux or Flux🤔 Anyway,.. I planned on just getting the van on the road..mot, engine and brakes..get it safe.... but got very involved now due to C19 lockdown... Last summer engine came out for serious rebuild. Andy (mutley) on here has it and in safe hands keeping me up to date ..due back just after lockdown ends...pics saved of build will be added here and looking forward to seeing/getting it back and in...👌 ... I'll be posting what I'm up to here as much as pos...please add comments peeps..
Not gonna repaint... just make it solid,clean bits paint and put back ..New if I can get and rebuilt odds... some stuff I believe is just not avialible..so I've knocked these up...now someone will tell me I could hv bought them😂
Busy boy, it all looks really good, progress is rapid. Will have a nice heart for it when the shit all goes away
Thanks andy...yes,all rather frustrating this but as u can see I've got involved so it can only be better for van... floor is amazing zero rot.. if now cleaned up right up to axle,removing everything that's clips and bolts on .. sprayed stonechip underthere..looking great...not putting water tank back in..tho I'll save in storage... Yep... looking forward to the rebuild mate... if u hv any rebuild pics can we work out how to get them over via email or whatever... Cheers for help with all the advice etc too... More pics follow..
Have you fitted the new bushes? When you fit them they will close up slightly, you then ream them out suit the pin. If you look in the workshop manual it will give loading as to how much force it takes to turn the pin when fitted. Ralph
Was hard work.... I've cleaned,degreast, wired down oldskool style..rust treated items,and hammer painted plus sprayed bits..May not be gen colours etc..but clean and looking ok....can't wait to get stuff back in.... days are counting down Andy....get my heart ready please..😍😍😍😍👍
