The other thing of course, both of those crimps look like they started off round and straight, there could be the option to get a batch made. One crimp is straight and we have manufactured one.

Re: location of ABS fuse M635

I didn't realize there was a difference. What didn't fit for you? the sensor itself? or length? The post '86 items are handed L & R. with fancy grommets. The ones I got from Ivo had no grommet or plug on the end. I think that the difference is because the trailing arms are different between early a...

Re: Removal of auto transmission cooler pipes from the gearbox end.

Bought like it. I have a few in the set from 19-36 mm. They are extreme HD as you can see by the thickness. German stamped "Belzer 1949". You can buy sets of cheap split ring spanners but they will break as soon as you put a load on. The other thick split rings I have are brake pipe sizes, which are...

Someone has "butchered" that. From the size of the cut-outs on the underside you don't have heated nozzles. I think the cut-outs on the top face of the bonnet are the same for heated and non-heated nozzles. This is the size of the cut-out on the lower face for the R/H heated nozzle. P1030067.JPG Thi...

Slightly off topic, but what is regarded as the best way to resurrect an R12 system that hasn't worked for well over ten years, but is known to have had a lot of new components fitted just prior to that? You might have a problem with R12 as it is technically illegal. Some agricultural outlets have ...

  • Do the heated and non-heated nozzles have the same mounting?
  • Are the heated and non-heated nozzles interchangeable?
The cutouts in the bonnet (hood) are different sizes for the heated/non-heated nozzles.

Please post a pic of yours and I'll confirm which type you have.
