  1. Well I have to say the ctek charger was a triumph, reconditioned both batteries and the primary battery has even got the green blob back in the "magic eye" indicator. Many thanks. J2J
  2. Hi everybody its been quite a while since I was on the forum. Things have been a bit busy with work and home so I didn't manage to MOT the 90 last year and so haven't used the old girl since last July but I have been firing her up periodically to keep liquids moving around the system. The other day I found it needed several turns of the engine to fire up as both batteries were very low on charge even though I have a solar charger. I was speaking to a friend who said that these batteries develop a memory and as such I might have a problem if they have been run low for any length of time. The
  3. Thanks Western good to hear from you. N's or 7's I gues N's Do you know if its just one model alternator fitted on early 200tdi engines? Cheers J2J
  4. Hi All It has been some time since my last post. About 12 months ago my 200tdi snapped an alternator belt. I thought well its because I don't use the old girl enough and said belt probably came with a dreaded "blue logo"on the packaging. So I replaced with a Dayco belt and all was OK. Yesterday after less than 1000 miles driven (I know its a shameful waste) since last year the belt snapped again. Fitted as per the book with correct difflection etc. I wondered if the alternator is on the blink and seizes intermittently, this could be borne out by my twin charge monitor just showing a single led
  5. Don't worry about it. You stated your specific terms of transaction it is the buyers responsibility to close the deal and secure the item. If they wanted the item they would have paid and collected or made a firm commitment regarding payment and collection. Take a look at any real time auctioneers t&c's to see what is considered fair practice. Just my two Penney worth. J2J
  6. Hi All its been a while. I recently converted my 1986 90 to a soft top and getting rid of old ribbed roof. A person asked me if it is a straightforward swap onto a 19999 td5 90. Anyone know? I searched but couldn't find the answer. Cheers. J2J
  7. Hi John, I have two 18 watt LEDs fitted to the back they are the flood beam ones here is a picture of them fitted and I will try to find an old post on here I made with images of them illuminated at night. They put out a huge amount of light and you don't have to worry about flattening your battery as much as twin 55w work-lights would. Cheers J2J
  8. OK I think I have found the bracket number: 336577 and from the below diagram it seems the answer is one bracket is all I need?
  9. Hi all. Just in the process of getting together the bits for my van back to truck cab conversion. I know i will lose the security of the rear load area but i never use it any way and three seats is fine also it will be nice once the heater works (one day i will get round to fixing it) to have a warm cab that will heat up quickly. My 90 is a 1986 van back at present and looking at parts lists i am unsure if i will need the rear panel to tub brackets a google search suggested not but other sources have told me i will? If so does anyone know the proper name of even better part number of th
