    Does anyone know of an idiots guide to replacing heat exchangers on a 1974 bay window camper (1600 twin port). What are the potential difficulties or any handy hints or tips? Is it easier to replace the rear box at the same time? Any help gratefully received. Thanks

    So my dilemma is not overheating, a common enough fault with any vehicle, but underheating. As my daily I run a panel van with a slightly modified 2.1 DJ engine which has an early cooling system which as stated seems to work too well. Instead of the fuel injection system I run twin Dellortos and...

    Can anyone tell me what I need to test an eberspacher. I've got the main unit which looks to be complete from what I can tell but the wiring stops at a connector. I do have manuals and diagrams but want to know if it works at all before i think about wiring it up properly.

    Hi, I'll start off by telling you my location - J6 of the M25 (I don't live there, just based near there; motorways are dangerous places).

    This is one of my hot air pipes going from the heat exchangers to under the back seat and to the channels down by the front seats. Same on the other side. When I got the car these were all wrapped in insulation. Are these supposed to be like this? and if so, why do they have holes in, surely...

    OK. Chilly weather is here - time to sort the heating in the '74 Westy. This has a sort of 3" diameter cardboard tube that run the length of the and I'll address that later but as a starting point I thought I'd see hot hot the air was coming out of the front vents. All cables are adjusted...

    Hi Everyone. I've now got the Bug on the road! ('69 Beetle) A couple of questions... I know that one of the levers next to the handbrake opens and closes the vents under the back seats, but is the other lever meant to stop the hot air altogether? Because currently this one doesn't do anything...

    I've got a Propex Heatsource 1800 in my bay - been in there for about 4 years now, fitted by myself and running propane. I didn't run it for about 6 months, and now I get the 5 flash error every time I start it ... which tells me the airflow is blocked. The reset button does nothing. I've...

    Anybody done this with any success? What did you do exactly? I'm talking about adding fins to the J-tubes to get a greater surface area for heat transfer. Is it worth the effort or will they always just be crap. I know they're not going to be up to factory standards. :)
