Request for assistance

Post by Shirty on Thu Sep 21, 2017 9:33 am

Hi,

I joined the group a several months back having bought a diesel Devonian camper, only for the motor to blow up when my wife was travelling back from Kent! (as descibed in the welcome section under 'new owner - tale of woe!')

Woodie has been able to help & I now have a replacement engine sitting on a pallet at home. The problem I have is that I do not have the facilities to swap over the engine, so am looking to see if there is anyone nearby who would be willing to help, or point me in the right direction. I'm in Letchworth Garden City, Herts.

I really would like to get the bus back on the road rather than get rid of her so any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks in anticipation.

cheers - Shirty

Hi, a quick update, I've found a garage who can swap the engine for me for a reasonable cost, although it is taking a while, but there's no major rush.

I spoke to the guy yesterday who reported that everything looks pretty good & solid underneath  Very Happy  the only fly in the ointment is that the engine mounts are pretty much shot  Sad  

I contacted Woodie, but unfortunately he doesn't have any, so I'm asking the general board to see if anyone is breaking a diesel & has a set of engine mounts available? Fingers crossed!!

Cheers

Good to hear you are sticking with it. Glad you found soneone to help swap the engines. Have you tried a Daihatsu dealer although they would probably be costly from them. Have you tried the Facebook forums for hijet?

Cheers Raggy. The guy doing the swap did contact Daihatsu, they were very expensive & on a 6 week delivery! Will join the Facebook group too & see if I get any luck there. Cheers.
