Thanks Ray :D How would I tell whether I had the LCV engine in, or just the standard 1098? I think the engine number will start with something like 10M/U/L (low) vs 10M/U/H (high). Cheers for that :) Not to mention the gradually failing oil pressure... :D Seems to have stabilised at the moment *tou...

Thanks Ray :D How would I tell whether I had the LCV engine in, or just the standard 1098? (I've gone past stressing, and out the other side :wink: ) Oiling up a plug may well be down to a poor spark, however it can also be down to poor oil rings / damaged bore. Servicing the lectrics and changing t...

Thanks very much, everyone :) BMC - an engine swap is already on the cards - but I need to get to Cumbria and back first :) Yes they are very low compression results. I felt encouraged to find that they were even, though. I cleaned all the plugs just last week (they get sooted up as the engine is bu...

sounds like a lawnmower - help!

hello chaps :) The other day I started the van after a couple of days of not running it, and it sounded like a lawnmower :o When I put it away after previously using it it was running fine.
