Re: Ignition with steering lock.

It’s done it before, but think it’s stuck fast this time.

I can move the steering wheel slightly (left and right).

It’s a German bus that was exported to Bolivia. I have imported it here.

The birth certificate states locking steering, so assume it’s original, but possibly been replaced.

Ignition with steering lock.

Hi

I have a 67 crew cab that came from factory, with steering lock. :(

Question: can it be removed without creating to much damage?

There is a blanking plug where the ignition Normally is, so could do away with the locking steering.

The lock is temperamental and now in the locked position. :(

WANTED 1 x pop out.

As title:

Looking to buy a decent pop out frame. Prefer a painted one. I have glass, so frame only is ok.

Thanks Tony.

Re: Import - MOT Required?

Massive thanks for the info!!!

Yes its a 1967 bus and all nova is done etc. I have actually registered one 2 years ago, but was unsure about the new rules regarding the M.O.T situation, but you seem to have cleared that up for me!

Great answer to my question and perfectly put.

Thanks.

Import - MOT Required?

Hi

Just some advise required regarding the current MOT situation. Recently imported a bus and I’m assuming for first registration, I will need an MOT.

Can anyone shed some light please.

Much appreciated. Thanks

Re: Asset Recovery Unit - Tracker

That's excellent!! I like the sound of your device reporting a location, before the Tracker. Can it be monitored by the owner via a webpage? Does the price include fitting? Or have we got yo fit? I like the sound of it all, the guys at work regularly plug in the tracker blocker of their van, allowin...

Re: My 65 Splitt 11 window.

I bought the bus in November 2011 and my mate who owns a samba 21 window egged me on. Photos do tell a million lies though as I am sure many of you know.
