I like this, and it could be very useful. Any interest in a swap for the CJ? Have sent a PM...

Say a man from Merseyside had a contract between Trentham, and Stoke City FC, and he was intent on staying over 2 nights a week, but didn't want to pay for a cheap B&B or AirBnB, do you think an underpowered camper would allow him to park up safely in the car park of his client (who runs the factory 24 hours a day) without anyone saying anything ?  Or would he have to pay to park it somewhere nice ?

I'm also in the position of liking this but not having anything to swap for it.  Plus your place is a bastard long way from my place in a 78bhp van.

 

Interesting, didn't realise that they kept using the OM.601 into the days of the Sprinter...

Yup, it carried on up to the facelift, when it was replaced by a low-blow version of the 2.1 CDI, which despite only having about 3bhp more was a hell of a lot quicker in the real world.

The old one seemed to have water damage, so I took apart the front bulkhead heater plenum and rodded it through- turned out the drains were partly blocked and in heavier rain it was spilling over into the cabin. NICHT GUT!!! All sorted now.

All very tempting offers, actually I’ve sold it to a local mate.


I’m getting another merc and am also going to move the w210 e329cdi on. Any takers?

E320cdi estate avangarde auto 173k mot to mid April

Runs and drives, no warning lights. Not happy to kick down (flashes up an error) but no limp mode and can be kicked down with the selector. Doesn’t like revving much over 3k (?maf) but pulls very well despite this- nice and quick. Rusty wheelarches and tailgate, dented rear door scabby alloys, firm ride at the back ( tired spheres- got a new set To go with the car and easy enough to replace- I did it diy on my last one)198F652D-B25D-4A8C-84E0-C62DA06C61F3.jpeg

C5FB5C00-143D-40F3-B418-57B6EE1AC8A3.jpeg

Having said that, it’s had long term owners and has the feel of a well looked after car. Interior excellent. Recent big bills for rear suspension pipe work replacement, 2 keys etc, starts on the key, lovely straight 6 diesel.

Did a quick fleet pic for posterity this weekend as it’s all change more or less next week....

CA5BFD38-D852-4611-AEE1-208787D33F5D.jpeg

Also been drying out the CLK as although I’ve sorted the cabin heater rainwater leak, it had been leaking for some time, as evidenced by the fucked heater blower. Although the interior carpets seemed dry, pulling them up revealed a pond and waterlogged backing foam. All sorted Just in time as I’m taking it up to the nec classic car thing tomorrow and collecting a few e bay purchases en route.

Walked a different route to the park with the kids; little did I know a Plymouth registered Rover P6 has been slowly decaying just a few streets away.....
