    Haha I think it basically works as turn on for hot or off for cold... But hot water always to be going through. There's a flap I can open which brings in air from outside into the van. Pretty sure the pump had a hole as I could feel water in it but I'll double check with a pencil or something lol.

    I thought that too but there isn't a tap on this set up (probably because its been retrofitted). The only thing my heater switch does is turn the heater fan on. I replaced all the piping just in case it was super corroded inside. So I know that from the pump to the thermostat that its literally just pipe now.

    Hey guys. Having some trouble with getting water flow pumping to the heater. I'm not sure if I'm being daft but Should the water pump be pumping water to the heater even when thermostat is shut? The hose that goes from the pump to heater - is this an Outlet.. or an inlet? I have taken the heater out of the equation and I currently have a u-bend in the cab (lower than the top of the radiator) and the hoses never gets warm. However if I make a u-bend at the engine side of things then it seems to work (and also stops engine over heating). Could it just be that the pump doesn't have enough omph to push water 3 metres? In that case.. would something like this help? https://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/car-parts-accessories/performance/radiators-cooling-systems/auction-1439597347.htm Cheers!
  4. Fabric was $3 per metre from fabric warehouse. Total cost of re upholstery = $12.
  5. Spot the difference.
  6. I don't think I have any pictures of how the cab was before but the carpet was really gross. Took it all out and found a bit of surface rust so pentretroled it and painted over. Then today I carpeted it with some bunnings stuff. Pretty pleased how it came out. Next point of order is to take it for a drive with @Steelies and decide what's next to do. (Hopefully he has time!) Hopefully can take it away at labour weekend for a test run.
  7. Here is the finished article by @Steelies Forgot to take a picture of the new engine panel at the front which was sweet as well. Kudos to manu to getting the fan to fit and have clearance for all the pipes etc!

    How much grief would I get turning up in an actual campervan.. A big one?

    How complex was the carb rebuild? I see carbs as a black magic.

    Wow. Amazing write up thanks! The budget part really appeals to me. I will keep an eye out for an 32/36 as it sounds this would be less work. But if I see the 34 adm for a good price then I know the option is there too. Thanks for taking the time to write that up!

    The issue I have with the gear box choices is that I can't go for a normal manual as it's column shift. I've read that there are Toyota ones that bolt straight on without with but wouldn't be able to change gear lol. How feasible would it actually be to put an auto in. I'm not sure how autos actually work but don't they need a sensor and wiring etc which I won't have?

    The campervan is surprisingly light for what it is. Think its about 1.5 ton. But it does take alot to get it going. It seems I have a decision to make. LPG or 2 barrel carb! Hmmmm.

    Ahh sweet. I'm with you now.

    Definitely something to look into. Think lpg is half the price of petrol atm.. What's the converter? Not sure what lpg availability is like in NZ but would probably go straight lpg as it probably saves headache I would imagine. Cheers guys. Something for me to think about. Will get the bloody thing running first!
