    did you connect the horn up to the low oil pressure light (and have you found what the issue was with the old engine?)

    Was it bedded in?

    I guess we ain't mentioning the newly fitted idiot lights then? :default_biggrin:

    Well we are now, time to spill the beans JA, low oil pressure light?

  3. Thanks for the SMEV recommendation from experiance Vaughan. I did read somewhere that Butane will soot the system up over time so better to use Propane, is this what you meant.

    With roof vents and the passage way from back to front and with galley and saloon being open plan area I estimate vented area to be around 23m3. 

  4. I agree and I`m aware of the point regarding flame failure device and I can live without the light in the oven, the igniter or any LED display needing 240v  however finding a gas oven & with gas grill (most grills seem to be electric) which can be converted to lpg AND built in is proving tiresome hence putting the call out.

  5. Morning all,

    With the aching back and dodgy knees not getting better anytime soon I`m looking to replace freestanding oven/grill/hob with a built in double cavity oven/grill in a tall kitchen unit with a seperate hob, all 12v and LPG.

    The likes of Spinflo, Thetford, Smev receive mixed reviews and to me are silly money but are they worth it, do you have one, would you buy another? Or has anybody found another make with the LPG conversion kits?

    I moved to Norfolk from London two and a half years ago. I have never felt more welcome and at home anywhere. Absolutely lovely people to match the beautiful place.

    I`ll second that Ray, been in Norwich/ Brundall for one year and tbh it took a little bit of getting used to. Nobody spoke to anybody they didn`t know in the area I left behind.

    Really in this day and age,  you think to achieve this mileage will be a basic oil change and replacement of glow plugs?

    Ah, so earlier when you said work history and costs which I couldn`t understand you meant service history and costs yes?

    To answer your question according to the service history no major engine parts have needed to be replaced including those glow plugs you mention.

    The vehicle inquestion was probably a pre-register to make the cut on dealer overider bonus.

    When I was last involved we were on an over rider of £250 per vehicle when we had moved 100.

    If you are approaching the cut of date and you are short a couple you register them to get your bonus and sell them at a discount, it is worth it not to miss out on a 100 x £250 bonus.

    Have heard of this before.

    Hopefully this is it


    The item posted earlier by OBB is a heck of a lot cheaper as long as it is ‘kosher’. Maybe someone uses one and can recommend it?

    At that price it has to be worth trying, being a simple card reader and a length of cable with a plug on the end it can`t damage anything. All `kosher` Apple gear comes with a high price.

    If you can just tell me how I get them from my camera to my I pad I would be happy to share not that I suspect they are very good


    Are we talking stand alone camera with a sd card? If so then the simply way would be something as in the link below, if however it is your phone camera then email them to yourself first then use the pictures from there.

    Just to redress the balance, a mate of mine won't use any other van, it has to be  Merc for him. I shall ask him when I next see him, if he'd be interested in yours OBB though he's just recently bought two s/hand Sprinters.

    How big is your Vito? 

    Thank you MM however mine is a SWB Vito so it has about half the capacity load area of a Sprinter therefore I doubt that he would interested.

    I once had a Vito Van for ‘GriffTile’. Bought from a Mercedes dealership. Worst vehicle I have ever owned. Because of that van I would never own a Mercedes of any description on principle 


    Feel the same way about Fiat Griff however could you please toddle off somewhere else before you wreck a potential sale. :default_2gunsfiring_v1:
