There was no way the van was going to pass it’s next MOT with some of the rust areas so it was time to treat them accordingly. For small areas I removed as much flaking rust as possible, wire brushed, coated with Bilt Hamber Hydrate 80, filled and then painted. The major repair areas were welded by John atContinue reading “Rust Treatment”
I recently bought a job lot of parts which included a broken Pierburg 2E3 carburettor. To improve my own knowledge and help others who want to understand the inner workings I have filmed the process of stripping the carb down completely, ready for a rebuild.
The steering in the van fees a little unresponsive and light at high speeds. I heard that replacing the steering rack bushes can make a huge difference so bought the Powerflex Steering Rack Mount Kit from Brickwerks.

The worst area was the offside sill behind the fridge and the only way to access this area is to remove all the interior units. I followed JonathanR’s excellent thread on the Club 80-90 forum detailing how he removed theContinue reading “Removing Autosleeper interior units”

Luckily, the T25 has everything ready for this easy lowContinue reading “Headlight Warning Buzzer”
Now that the lighter socket runs off the leisure battery I wanted to swap it with a dual USB socket with a switch to turn it on and off. Neither of us smoke so a USB version would be far more useful than the original socket for powering our phones/sat nav. I went for a Blue Sea Dual USBContinue reading “Switchable USB Socket”
