The culprit a Chinese 30 amp generator.
Replace this with a Bosch 38 amp generator.
Don't you just put a straight one in that's slightly oversize and bend/flex it to fit. The tension would then hold it in place.
OSF you are smarter than the average bear!
shitty bearings or internals?
All my experience with this rubbish is the quality of the bearings
I have found by the time you get a German one rebuilt with quality bearings etc it is cheaper than buying a cheap one and getting the bearings done
That said - a cheap one with proper bearings is pretty good.
A cheap one as is.......................................................well.......................................
Is there an exact location for installing the bow support brackets on a DC?
Tried calling Tom at Busware - he's gone camping!
This is the image of Busware, it doesn't look right.
I grabbed this from Super Cheap, I think it will break over time.
I think I might try this instead and a piece of arched steel.
All fixed but tucked away under cover - it's raining in Melbourne.
Mud flaps f#%k me! There's so many different types and mounting brackets.
I bought some including brackets from Mr Bubble Head last year. Great quality.
This is a good site http://www.ratwell.com/. Search mud flaps.
Yeah I know what you mean. I thought the same thing. Logic kinda says you would put the bracket at the top. I do however remember when I was a kid my Dad having a ute with a similar kind of set up (in the days before the steel bar bracket that slots into the hole either side). I can't remember what ute it was though (and my Dad is no longer around to ask), but what I remember was that when on, the Tonneau (not called a Tonneau then either) was supported by the cross bar but only in the middle and not at the sides.
The memory is very vague as I was probably just a little fella and I don't really know why I remember it, but I suspect it has something to do with the fact I probably spent a lot of time using the back of the ute as a cubby house. I also have memories of a bunch of us kids get transported to the beach in the back of the ute whilst down the coast at our holiday house.
Geeezz ... how times have changed. Kids playing around in cars, riding in the back of the ute, and actually having a holiday house .... what the!
i.e. I think the picture might actually correct.
Keen to see if anyone else knows anything about this.
I think Gordon was looking to get some of these brackets made?
Mr Bubblehead (Nic) has had them fabricated here in Melbourne. Those plans are really accurate. The variance, I think comes in to play depending on what type of mudflap you have.
Yea, I went down that path with the brackets, made up a template - all was going well on the rear left side, then moved to the right side and the bracket that it mounts to was different -(no holes available) , so I was unable to fit it to my own bus, - and that opened up the prospect that I'd be receiving returned brackets.
I explained that to those that showed interest in my initial thread, in a pm conversation.
If Mr Bubblehead has made something up that would be great, - sent him a message last night after your earlier post.
So does that mean you have a set of brackets you can't use / don't want...... ? Or did you do further mods to get them to fit.
Grabbed this from John who was moving, excess to my needs.
Hang on to that.
You never know when you might need it or OSF , Gordo DC77, slowbus ,or me
I thought it might be a wise investment. I'm going to clean it. Springs / Frame seem good.
Was there 2 headrests originally?
The 4 hole's indicate that it would be a yes!! It looks like a late 2/3 seat similar to what OSF has in his DC Ute by the springs.
Yep, I got 2 so I assume there was. Grab another if you see one anywhere.
That's also the exact vinyl as what was on my back seat.
Except the stuffing in that seat looks stuffed to be able to see the springs thru the vinyl. Where OSF seat looks good nik
