Re: Fuel Breather Pipe issue

No need to change the fuel hose yearly if it's the right stuff to begin with, buy on reputation, not specification. ('cos depending where you buy it, it might not be what someone says it is) eg https://www.brickwerks.co.uk/brickwerks-blog/fuel-hose-information-and-reassurances/ Their stuff is good f...

Re: Eberspacher

:( I didn't intend to put you off. Have a read of the troubleshooting section, it'll explain how it works. Essentially, you need the fuel pump to work, the fan to spin, the spark plug to spark and all the safety gubbins not to interfere. I haven't got the one in my 412LS working yet, though it is a ...

Re: Eberspacher

You might find a user manual handy https://www.type4.org/manuals/ba4/index.html Have a fire extinguisher handy, just in case the fuel pump or hoses leak. It would be a good idea to replace the fuel hose as well. Brickwerks have the proper stuff that handles ethanol in fuels, check what size you need...

Re: Timing issues?

Points closing sounds like the securing screw is not gripping and it gradually closes with engine rotation. There should be one or two thin washers in there I believe.

As to setting points, one of the things I still do imperial for: 15 thou which is just a smidge over 0.4mm

Re: New radio in my car

No problem, just remember, that's what was fitted in my car, certainly never changed since '91 so I'm just assuming original fitment.

New radio in my car

Just a quick post showing the new radio in my 412LS. It was one recovered and now reused from the old gentlemans garage sale earlier this month. Fits in nicely, looks period, but it taok a bit of fettling to get it to fit. I think the 412 dash is a bit thicker than Blaupunkt intended. Some temporary...

Correct.

If the OP needs help with getting a date correct suffix registration I can help with documentation to prove manufacturing date ;)
