Fast forward to 10/2019
I have a couple updates to report.
Mileage now 278,xxx Km
Changed out clutch, pressure plate, release bearing, slave cylinder. Rear crank seal was also changed as gearbox was already out.
New HiFly tyres but I'm having issues with balancing them. Subsequently passed inspection.
Repairs done to alternator, charging is good but vacuum pump has slight leak.
Service done to starter.
Crank pulley developed a play and needed to be repaired.
I may have missed a few things since last update was 2 years ago.
Current issue is noise coming from rear suspension. Funny thing is noise only occurs while driving through rain/wet conditions. I suspect the shocks are the culprit and would try replacing those first as a method of elimination.
Other than the few minor issues, van is start and go. I'll try to update more often.
