    In and running! Started after a bit but spluttering and popping. Vac leak? Unlikely. All clamped.
    Pulled plug lead of LH side and engine stopped. Tried again with RH plug and still motored on. Tried again with other RH plug and again spluttered on.
    RH carb OR some dill mixed up the plug leads on RH side. Dill theory correct. Connected properly and it purred!

    What year is your bus Alpal? I am guessing 77 as it has the mounts for smog pump on fan shroud like mine?

    Tis a 79. Purchased 1986. Travelled to WA year of Americas Cup Challenge. Had an air pump driven off fan when we got it. Lost it somewhere along the journey.

    That’d be great thanks.

    Sorry, I meant to ask “what sort of insulation is on the shields you’re selling?” :oops:
