I didn't even notice when I bought the engine, it's not lumpy at all. I guess the penalty will come with the mpg,

From the drives I've had in it, there is a power band in higher revs, but it was cutting at 5k, so I couldn't make the most of them, there was still plenty of low torque.

Yup, twas me.

The second shot of vcds was wrong above, now updated.

Yes, it's well earthed. The earth leads were fitted before the fuel pipes!
It is all down to the multi plug, they ripped the cable out of the lambda sensor too. I though getting them to remove it would save me the effort - how wrong can you be!

The cam looks like it could be fun:



Solid line is standard cam, dotted line is 272 cam. Torque and bhp

ooh its you on faceache! that is a nice surprise........ (cam) i take it they couldnt figure out how to get the plug off so resorted to molegrips to get it off? have you got earths to engine? one at t68 to end of cylinder head around water outlet one off coil to rocker-cover and another (for good measure) from earth point on block to chassis or battery? to have that many faults in one hit i would say an earth or two is missing or very poor connection.

Had a weekend with vcds, initially trying to fix the hall sensor and other error codes but made them worse.

Wouldn't even run properly. After a bit of head scratching I suspected the engine multiplug, it had been damaged by the guys who rem9ved the engine. A good spray with Wurth Contact ol sorted it and error codes came up as:

The maff is shit so that's unplugged hence the code, new one on order.
Also a pleasant surprise:


Now I need to work out how to use that to the best effect...

Oh, and fit an injection tank as the pump is not happy with the 8mm feed, luckily I have one ready.

Wiring all done last week.

Had a bastards of a time trying to get comms to vcds (thanks Barny), so borrowed another ecu and immo just in case, still nothing.

I bought one of these:

3 wires connected and it starts first flick of the key, yay!
I put it in a small potting box with the obd socket:

And mounted it at the front of the van, I'll break the k-line for the immobiliser at some point.
Also built one of these - works a treat

That works a treat too.
The exhaust is noisier than I want, so I will probably extend the tail pipe a bit.
I also nood to sort the wobbly brakes and replace the speedo cable.

An update.

Been away in it a few times, it's been great, I can't get on with the wbx tho.



So, yesterday morning, this happened:


And this went in:


Exhaust done, I purchased a down pipe off here, an elbow and comussioned a stainless steel 32" x 6" silencer. Easily fitted together and clamps welded onto the silencer to fit jx rubbers





And Terrano II air filter fitted with butchered volvo v40 intake hose:



This morning, fuel system done and engine plumbed up:


And now wiring.....

Hi all,

Overdue an update, all the little jobs done, interior upholstery is away for recovering, new curtains waiting, electrics sorted, reversing camera fitted, split charge all done and a solar panel fitted, interior cleaned etc. Headlamps uprated, some of the woodwork repaired and recovered.

It took a good weekend to repair the front and rear bumpers, the front was in 2 halves, riveted together badly and the rear wasn't much better



A good day with the fibreglass and filler and a coat of paint and they came up a treat, a set of wahonbuild secondhand brackets later and ......






Spent yesterday morning fitting the decals:



I've also been prepping the agg, but I want to use the van before I take it off the road to do that.

I've got the DG running ok, but not brilliant, it doesn't pull on the higher rev bands, it sounds like it is misfiring, I think I am going to throw in the towel and send it to a local garage

A little update.

Use a starter solenoid of a agg started from a previous conversion to make a boot release mechanism and fitted an alarm and central locking.

All windows fitted.

Colour sanded and machine polished the paint.

Repaired a section of floor - why do Autosleeper use chipboard for floor? It must zvd been conceivable that it would get wet!

Seem to have the DG running pretty well, fitted new leads, that with the other parts seems to have done the trick, hope it will sell for more than the cost of parts!

Also picked this up yesterday:



The camper is definatly narrower and shorter than my daily driver, it barely fits on the ramps


It's been very nicely painted, so Elvis should be pleased, mileage isn't too bad, and apparently it's been rebuilt, not sure of that though. It does have a piper adjustable timing gear on the camshaft, so maybe it has a cam too....

There was a broken stud on the exhAust outlet, but welding a nut on worked a treat,

Having spent a fortune on new curtains and retrim ming the cushions, I need to work on saving some money! Whilst I would love a wolfy's exhaust, at £460 plus delivery, it isn't going to happen, so I need to work on an alternative.....

Anyone need a good dg, new dibby, choke pull down, water pump, leads, plugs, exhaust rebuilt, etc...

I've had a weekend of tinkering.

New rear shoes, springs and drums - there were chunks missing out of one.

Up front, the Shields had disintegrated off the disks,

Amazingly all the retain screws came out without too much bother.

Next job, seats. I have a nice set from the back of a crysler voyager. I removed all the unnecessary ironwork and set about making a flat surface to bolt the runners onto:


Choppd up the plynth (excess metalwork)

And a bit of butchery and welding:

Fitted.

And refashioned and refitted the plastic bits:

It's been a nice warm day, so I've painted all the other bits:

And braved fitting them as the weather is crap tomorrow (the paint was a little too soft, so will need a bit of work)


Also stripped the carb, it is running a little better, but still very lumpy. Give me an agg any day!

Yes, it has come out well. 3 coats and it's got a good shine. It dties slower than standard 2 pack, but without the cyanide, I can't say I noticed the difference. I'll flat it and machine polish it and it should look good.

I've done cellulose before and that was harder to get a good finish, 2 pack is easier.

Cheers.
I've never used the non-iso 2k, was it relatively easy to spray?
Bollocks to it all!!

It's a Non-isocyanate 2 pack with a cheapish Italian HVLP spray gun.
