it looks a little different from that now, ive given it a good clean up - got the carpet for the back. just got 3 rear cab seats from a tranny van - (i think they are from) - gonna make 1 fit for now...

Ive just got my second van recently a p reg 1.2 deisel and its just failed on rear brakes - so im currently removing the brake compensator... ive got 1 more pipe to get out lol....(will post pics soon)..

Problem is though, if a vehicle is fitted with a load sensing valve it must be present for the MOT.

And by looking at the single flexi pipe coming off the back axle, it makes it obvious it should have one.

Is a very nice example though from the picture! Welcome Very Happy

Keep the MPV and black out the windows then use it as a van or a car can't do that with the van.

That green one looks like a damn nice hijet, a proper good example, one not one of he many worn out dogs.

What are you after for it?

Owning both the 1 litre petrol and the diesel, how do they compare?

green one.

Post by hijetx2 on Thu Aug 30, 2012 8:27 am

At the moment the big green parcel machine, is sorn.
its got a slight oil leak that im going to sort today.
if someone offered me 800 for it id take it.

history behind it is - i got it from a friend and it had been stood for about 10 months.
battery was flat - charged it - nothing from the key.
removed starter and overhauled it. now starts first go.
clutch is a bit stiff but drives fine. (i think this is from not being used because it drives fine).
overhauled lspv changed a brake pipe and it passed its mot.

within regards to how they compare - ive only driven the green one about 5 miles so cant really say.(dam insurance / tax laws.)
