Re: My awesome 710K air conditioning installation.

Hello Tjerk,
I will share my electric installation diagram so you can check it. I have two fans, I believe one is connected as you describe, the second one is manual and independently powered for slow traffic or very hot days.
But I will check again on possible alternatives.
Thank you,
Jerome

Re: My awesome 710K air conditioning installation.

I would like to understand better your comment about belt tension. What is your experience with it? Do you have photos or any info on the original bracket/installation?
Thank you,
JC

Re: Lots of cheap heaters popping up

Gentlemen, ladies?, Don't give up so easy on the original Eberspachers, there are a pain but once refurbished, they do great. I have produced pressure reg diaphragms and some other small parts that usually contribute to a good running unit. If you do give up, please consider publishing the old units...

My awesome 710K air conditioning installation.

I am proud of my two years of playing with the design and installation of an AC in my 710K. I managed to get a standard "of the shelf" cheap AC kit and install it without drilling a single hole in the trucks body, except for the gearbox access cover in the back floor. The major challenges... The pul...

Re: Gas heater debug

I have posted somewhere around some diagrams, most likely for the old version, you have the new version, but still look around and you may find diagrams. No experience with this model. You have two options, find those diagrams, then navigate through "the Samba" forums, and try to figure the problem ...

Re: Sitting 4+ years, checklist for resurrection...

"Air filter is fine. No mice remnants anywhere to be found. Hopefully I'll have some more time this weekend to tinker with it." Just to make sure... rodents like the far back right corner in side the fan tunnel. They come from the bottom or through the fan. There is no way to see this but by removin...

Re: Can't find vaccum leak. Backfiring, missing on accelerat

One more iteration on my search for the solution to this problem... I have smoked the carbs, installed, and found leaks in the cold start plate covers, they were bent. Also, my carb springs... one broken, one missing altogether!!! Answering the previous 2 posts: not sure in what part of the precess ...

Re: Choke cover leak - help!

Both covers were pretty bent. I heated them and with soft and small hammer and vice pressure, managed to get them quite close to flat, then a little sand and both look good now.
Now back to ground zero: re-jetting, re-idle, re-synch, re-timing... :{
