Re: Draining fuel

Cheers Alec - is that accessible from under the car, or through the boot?

Draining fuel

My 2500S hasn't seen the road in probably 10 years or so. What's the best way of draining the old fuel from the tank and fuel lines?

Dilemma

If you've ready any of my recent posts on this forum you'll know I've taken on a 1977 2500 project - I bought the car from a local guy who saved it from being scrapped by an aquaintance who I believe had used it as a parts car for its engine. The engine was replaced and I bought the car shortly afte...

Door adjustment

Looks like the driver's door on my new 2500 (long story, will post something later) is sitting too close to the A pillar - the gap here is very small whereas the gap at the B pillar is too large. In addition, the door is dropping at the B pillar end but there's some play in the top hinge pin so I'm ...

Re: Correct clutch kit?

Following on from the above (and yes, I should have bought everything from CW in the first place) - just out of curiosity, has anyone had any issues with replacement clutch release bearings being slightly too large for the bearing release carrier? I bought a new carrier from Chris Witor as my old on...

Gearstick gaiter

Does anyone know of anywhere I can obtain a replacement black vinyl gaiter for the gearstick on a mk2? I can’t seem to see these listed for sale anywhere. Mine’s badly split and I’d like to replace it – I’m sure it would be possible to get a trimmer to knock one up for me but it would be easier for ...

Re: Dashboard removal and re-covering

Wow, I've just had two quotes for re-covering my dash in new vinyl - the first was from a place in SA who quoted 'from $795', the second from a place in Victoria (who I have read very good things about) who came in at $495 but shipping would add another $100 to that. That shipping cost doesn't seem ...
