So why can't you turn the rad thru 90 degrees to gain some ground clearance? The centre heating tube can be removed now as you can fit a couple of 12mm pipes running the length of the bus and a heater matrix up front to keep your toes warm Very Happy

As far as the fuel return is concerned I know of people who have done the return into the feed line and it has worked but if your going to return into the tank it MUST be from the bottom.
Falling fuel can generate a static electircal charge and you do not want a spark in your fuel tank!!
I know the weather is against you so good luck finishing it off Cool

cleverchap, the fuel has been returned before the pump, im going to see how that works as the only bad thing i can see is that it is going to be warm fuel. i have already removed that heating pipe, the only thing that is stopping the rad going any hirer is the twin fans on top of the rad, as there quite bulky and deep. i think im going to remove the fans and mount the rad nice and high with a 25 degree angle and mount a second rad with a single fan somewhere else for cooling when the van is stuck in traffic. maybe a smaller rad.
the mount is welded to the chassie rail nomates so it is plenty strong enough. about 7 inches in front of the orignal.

ps cleverchap im doing like a 1/16th if that. of what you did. your suspension is just mind boggling to me, plus i wish i had your gear box.! lol.
when you leaving? i see what you mean with the rad i tried that to start with but may play on that idea as i cant remember if i tried that before or after i chopped the heating pipe out.

Brilliant, well done fella.
Is your exhaust going to sit that low though?? I would try and get it raised up a tad if you can.....you will be forever dragging it if it stays where it is in that pic.

well got all the parts i needed to today and finished plumbing the engine, filled up with water and found leak after leak. once that was sorted made sure the system was bled. and took it out for a spin.
OMG it is emence it pulls so hard and doesn't hang about. first gear if ou put you footdown it just spins.
but the clutch ant right it seemed like the cable had snapped so i checked and that was fine, its something to do with the clutch cross shaft, it really slack i can move the arm by hand. so something has bent or broke. so im gunna have to take the engine out on thur and inverstergate.

Congrats on getting your conversion done so quickly. I remember the first time I took my bus out, the smile on my face was huge Very Happy
A quick tip, carry some water around with you and keep checking the level as it takes a while to get all the air out of the scooby system Wink
