Re: Fuel tank spillage 3/4 full

might be a problem with expansion in the tank. Would need to let gas escape but not liquid and even then if it was filled right up the expansion could cause the tank to rupture.

I've always wondered why bath plugs don't have adjustable pressure valves too..... :-)

Re: Fuel tank spillage 3/4 full

You're lucky. When I bought my bus the overflow was blocked. If I jacked it up on the left side the fuel would run into the engine bay....eeck!! Soon sorted and as others have said - I never fill it up....

Re: Split screen help

No, no belly pans but structure added to the roof. I also think the centre crossmember is moved to the rear from memory. Doesn't flex too much and I've jacked it from every angle. It also doesn't flex when the kids are up there - my eldest is 5ft 10 and not exactly lightweight...

Re: Insulation

I used Dynamat off Amazon. Easy enough to fit and does make a difference going over the engine area.

Re: Split screen help

I've got a 3/4 pop roof in my bus fitted by the previous owner. It was one of the reasons I bought it. I believe it was made by Space Roofs. I've got two girls 14 & 12 and they sleep in the roof. There are good points and bad points to it. The Good: 1. Safe and secure for them 2. Its a full width/ l...

Re: Koni Red or Bilsteins on a lowered bus

Hi Lee, I've been experimenting too. I put the fronts on full hard for a camping trip fully loaded and it wasn't too bad but you know its stiff. I think I'm going to back the fronts off half a turn. On the motorway I was one handed cruising at 70+ and it was incredible how stable it was. I've got th...

Re: Beam adjustment

Easier on the bus as the weight of the wheels pulls the adjusters down to their maximum drop (without the shocks fitted). Also, you might find the adjuster nut fouls the gear linkage so might need to carefully bend it slightly.

Re: Koni Red or Bilsteins on a lowered bus

Hi Lee, I had the same problem in getting the fronts. In the end I bought some from Amazon Germany and they arrived within a couple of days and were only £10 more. The rears from larkspeed. I also spoke to T2D and confirmed the lengths of the Bilsteins are roughly the same as the Koni's. I'm running...
