    Running an Electric Cool Box in Camp

    we manage to keep euroengels running from batteries for 72 hours for the MOD with medical supplies , if running from battery keeping it closed as much as possible is vital, I will look at the battery size tomorrow

    Historic MOT status

    The system is set for all 40 year old vehicles (non commercial) as MOT exempt , as you vehicle currently has an MOT it doesn't trigger the VHI question , if you were retaxing it after your MOT ran out you'd get the VHI question, so no need to re MOT it in July or do anything other than retax again next year and tick the box . They have made the system future proof knowing there will be upto 12 months where vehicles will legally not require an MOT but Tax renewal is not due. The form is only required at the PO because they act as an agent , whereas online you deal directly

    Clutch bled no gears

    Does the piston actually retract? had this when I finished my chassis swap , the clutch bled perfectly but first application piston moved and stayed there , slacken the two bolts, if the cylinder moves back as you release them then you have your answer , clutch is stuck in disengeaged position.

    Heaters

    Worked for Eberspacher for nearly 20 years and don't think a week goes past when I dont see a complete horror story on installations where people have ignored the instructions, so if anyone wants any advice on Eberspacher heaters or if you have a Snatch with an Eberspacher AC system feel free to PM. Just to be clear and no dig at anyone on this thread always tricky to write and not come across or be interpretted wrongly

    Major IVA change

    Biggest hit I can see is make a chassis mod or other mods that take you below 8pts so that you need an IVA , then even if your engine is the original , you are very unlikely to meet the emissions as a new vehicle, so bobtail = chassis mods =IVA , std engine from say 1983 and unlikely to pass new vehicle standards , Kit Cars- not sure there is a national body , NRSA - will cover Hot rodders concerns and I guess realistically they are the closest group to any LR 4 x 4 modifier, Classic Car's will be the domain of FBHVC .

    Heaters

    Combustion air and exhaust only need there own diameter as clearance to operate, its the air intake and the air outlet on an air heater that is the concern to prevent overheating .Although robust both the main manufacturers have to build safety systems in to match the main market for these products which is OEM fits, the after market use such as boats and ambulances etc is a drop in the ocean compared to OEM fits, people often complain they are too complicated and fitted with lockouts etc, but thats whats needed in the world of OEM.

    Heaters

    The reason is to stop overheat issues, same reason theres a maximum duct lenght both inlet and outlet, if too much resistance theres not enough airflow , so the heater shuts down in protection mode, we commonly get reports of equipment placed infront of vent and heater not working! Not all heaters can have a 90deg hood fitted for that very reason , rule of thumb is clearance has to be the duct diameter on the intake

    Heaters

    The combustion air pipe can be raised , my hydronic heater is mounted where the washer bottle used to sit so the combustion air pipe is tucked up inside the engine bay, trickier with an airtronic though as heater generally fitted on the floor or back wall of cab internally, just be careful with max lenght of combustion air pipe.

    Heaters

    seldom get complaints on noise from exhausts, usual moan is the fuel pump ticking, as has been said exhaust and combustion air silencers do cut the noise, and the fuel pump if mounted using the rubber block can also be silenced to an acceptable level. Air heaters are more noisy than water heaters as they have to push a larger volume of air over the heatexchanger, you can't hear my Hydronic running on my 110 unless you stand right alongside
