Van all sorted at last... i hope!

first problem, was the distributer cap not on right, and timing out/mixture etc.

booked into Interpro at Thornbury to get rolling roaded on Friday.

2nd problem: battery got drained in under 6hrs when engine off (and no lights left on before you ask!)

2 batteries later and all the wiring checked etc..

Turns out to be a wire plugged into the regulator that shouldn't of been, causing a permanent drain on the batt. This screwed up the charge circuit big time!

So now happy and back on the road!

Serious bad luck really............

never got as far as the dyno. Crying or Very sad

bloody pain in the arse empi carb (number 4 cylinder)- mixture screw fits inside a brass thread thingy into the side of the carb is turning on it's self.
This means no adjustment at all to the air/fuel mixture.
There is a tab missing that holds it in place/not been drilled correctly. Evil or Very Mad

so, VW Heritage/SSP are collecting the faulty carb on Monday, and should have new replacement sent back by Wednesday.

This faulty carb was running very lean, and was over heating number 4; as a result the valves had closed up loads and compression was down to 50psi.

David at Interpro has checked out head etc and adjusted valves and now it is back up to 140psi. All others are at 150psi at the mo.

Lucky I got it there really and hadn't really driven her much. (or pushed the revs etc)

So it will hopefully be sorted and on the dyno/rolling road sometime at the end of the week.


sorry no pics, was at work all Friday, but Interpro took some of the carb fault. will see if I can get them this week.

So that's the 3 problems with the van sorted: engine leek, battery dead and now carb crap! lol! lol! lol!
