You can't beat the old uns. I've got an 05 transit, thankfully the tddi not the tdci, changed the pump on it last November, £680 and that was doing it myself. She is going to need sills next year for mot, she has only kept this good for this long as I waxoyl it fortnightly
Well, something like that yeah, we've got one more to do and then that's it for Mk 5 Transits I think. We can't go on fixing them up indefinitely, I'm just not sure what the best vehicle will be to do the job with next. It's almost custom build time
We've got an 02 Mk 6 chassis cab that needs a bed putting on it then I'm done with vehicles for a long while, might do a bit on the race car but I expect something will come up to put a stop to that. I've just done a quote to weld a thousand ally castings up for the foundry next door so that will probably put paid to any hopes of free time for a few months.
Still, 2014 is shaping up to be a much better year for RH Davey Welding so I'm looking forward to cracking on with it.
Cause was traced to a 7 volt feed from the ABS circuit, we removed the fuse to the ABS, fault went away. In the end we fitted another resistor to earth on the brake light circuit and the 7 volt back feed virtually dropped to nothing. We have a tiny glow on the brake/tail light now when the indicators are used but its below the 80 candela limit for the MOT so we have been advised to leave it alone.
Thanks for all the help over the phone, vehicle wiring gives me the willies.
