Not sure what yet Lol i want it to be multi purpose.

So a set of seats in the middle and a bed in the back and the front and centre bulkheads move electronically so in mode 1 you have the van with front bulkhead then mode 2 reveals it like a dciv then mode 3 the middle seats are folded forward and there's a bed in the back with kitchenette.

Regs? Impossible?
We'll see :mrgreen:

Nothing is impossible and with your skill set highly achievable, the biggest issue is space. N

No i still have to do the fuel and wiring.

On my custom i have this pump by the fuel filter.
Which looks the same as my heater one

Which in theory i could just T into and connect the connector so it powers the van pump to fuel the heater, they both won't be on at the same time.

Not actually sure what the van 1 is for yet? Is it a lift pump to help the main pump? Is it the only pump? Bit poxy if it is Lol. Do you have 1 on billy? Maybe mine is for the hilti?

Doesn't that pump control how much heat comes out of the heater?
On startup and low mine would go tick. Tick. Tick. Tick
Then on full bor it went ticktockticktockticktock :?

I had a separate tank full of red for mine it used to use 5 gallons a month

Yes it is the fuel Kettering pump, if it tics then it'll be a solenoid actuated type like electronic version of the old cam shaft mechanical fuel pumps you had :o

There's 1 on the van already though does billy have 1 please?

Yes in the middle connected to the front sub frame, you can see it just by having a quick look, no crawling or anything necessary :wink:


Also that faulty mirror needs replacing because it doesn't show the correct image when you put the van in reverse there's different coloured lines etc but I'll happily buy it off you spare or repair :o
