  3. Don't you have a working fuel gauge on that pickup? What happened to the battery? Was it just dead?

    Ian, glad the lead got you back ok.
    Don't bother sending it, I've got loads in a bag in the shed.
  4. It works in a fashion, it reads permanently full can't explain the battery breakdown assistance man put a tester on it was only reading 11.38 v it's either not charging, is foobarred or an alternator issue !

  5. Bugger. :(

    I lost the engine bay seal somewhere along the way including the bit of the inner valance it attaches to.:eek:
    It still ran 10c cooler on the way back though that was probably the monsoon conditions on the m6 and did 24 to the gallon too. :)

  15. @Flakey got some in the shed it's OG
    One owner from only done 1200 miles
  16. Had a great day at tatton and good to meet and speak to leec and see his crew cab amazing work!!! And pkrboo have to say amazing work on his conversion and would have listened to him for another hour(or more) but think his family thought he had met a long lost relative but am hoping I can make techenders in September and tempt him with a few beers to tell me a bit more about his conversion
