    The bad things about the 80?

    Mines a non rusty 81, they do exist But, drivers seat does not go back far enough, I'd prefer softer suspension like the early Rangies, 80 brakes are somewhat lacking too.

    My old 81 has appeared on the Jumble

    I used to own this, sold it about 5 years ago, it was a very tidy one with almost no rust & all the jobs done too, eg BEB's, CV's etc. It's cheap as well!

    Carpet Lining recommendations

    The best stuff is campervan stretch carpet, its amazing stuff. Pulls round corners, stretches into awkward shapes with ease, use spray glue. Its easy to trim & and makes a really nice job. I've just done my centre console that was looking tired with it. (Plus most of my campervan)

    Windows slow and jamming

    I tried a little trick/bodge to see if it worked before ordering new rubbers.... I took the original trims out & with a sharp blade I trimmed the inner lips off, not completely along the whole length but most of it. I left a few sections eg by the window ledge, top & bottom section, to help...

    comfort vs practical

    Having owned various campers.. including a Bongo with a pop top. For cold weather the poptop was too cold so had it down unless summer weather. Comfy lounging about space is more important than standing space. I've used all sorts for ski trips, now have a Hymer which has awesome insulation in...

    Hello!! Had a rib in the past but now have a 22ft Four Winns with a V8 :) She's very yellow though, a bit of a classic, we launch from Poole & do trips around the coast or IOW area. PS: I have a gearbox or two for a 90-115 Mercury 2 smoker in my shed, think they are the same as the yam?

    12 Valve heaven

    Yamaha Sti's as they are known, awesome bits of kit. The big power Yanmar's run 14mm diameter fuel pump heads (The biggest of any Bosch VE pump) thats how they make the power. On boats you have limitless cooling almost which helps.

    Chassis Cleaning

    Boats are different, they should not leak & petrol fumes sit in the bottom of a boat. Petrol fumes are easy to ignite, hence why boat electrical componens like alternators are shielded & different to car ones. That's also what bilge blowers are for to rid the hull of fumes.

    Front hub grease port mod

    After a few drives & re-squirts it simply oozes from the wiper seals, I think its just a case of some slight positive pressure is enough to leak past the wiper seals as opposed into the axle. Hopefully

    Front hub grease port mod

    Found a neat way to stop the hubs filling with water so readily when wading & or keeping them nicely greased up. On the inside front of each hub knuckle is a square threaded bung, simply remove, drill & tap them & screw in some grease port zirks. Might take a good few squirts to get them full...
