Re: Power Steering Fluid vs Dex/Merc vs Type F

I IMMEDIATELY recognised the view under your MH.. Right down to the bags. Didn't most of the P30 chassis wind up as postal trucks? Here in Canada that was the case. I don't encounter many overly long hills, and the ones I'm familiar with, I approach at just moving speed, esp. when towing. Getting to...

Re: Power Steering Fluid vs Dex/Merc vs Type F

The Lucas made the pump run quieter and completely removed a slight notch in the rack.
It's magic...
Tempted to try your motorhome trick. Anything that will help the braking in that thing is worth a try!

Re: 87-89 Brake MC Kit

X2.
Typically happens on one side though.
On that MC kit, it says 85-89. I have no direct experience with it, the MC are different from mid-86 on.

Re: Over pressure cooling system

Try a cap for sure, but be prepared. I had the same issue on the eve of Carlisle back ~ 2000 or so. First one hose went, then another, then... I wound up driving all day with the cap loose, which worked out fine, until I stopped... Which was fun, on an 8+ hour trip. Turns out all of my hoses were du...

Re: Poor (hard) acceleration -I have read other threads...

A VAM is like a TPS, except in a dirtier environment. It can really throw the ECM for a loop. I had an irritating issue that only seemed to rear it's ugly head on longer tours. It'd run fine after arriving at my destination. Turned out to be an intermittent flat spot on the VAM sweep. It's a metal (...

Re: WTB - Stock Basket Weave Wheels

I'll get some pics Gary.
They were MINTY until they lost their storage space to another dirt bike.
They've been outside for a year or so, have caps and key.
