Looking good!  You must have about a 3 tonne payload on that bus! [eek] Lots of wine bottles...[biggrin]


I'm just about to start putting the top-coat on the cab of mine too. If the weather would just be nice for a weekend...

Pulls like a train,gearing to low so a new back end going in with higher ratio.

I envy you. I am totally banjaxed because I can't find any correct donor axles for a 1984 Sherpa 350. I shall live with the ear-shattering whine and abysmal fuel consumption until eBay throws me a good card from the pack. You know how it goes.[wink]

Back axal got on ebay ratio 11/43 old one was 8/41 2600 rpm-45 mph ,i should increase speed by about 10/15 mph at 2600 rpm and i hope save fuel.
Drums and brake plates resprayed now ,rear hub socket 90mm cost near £100 ,torque bars are over £350 lucky i got one unused on ebay 92 to door,there nearly 5 ft long and torque is 4600nm.
Drums are behind axal hubs so they must come of first,strange setup.All parts shot blasted and two pack painted now.

Does it have to be a Sherpa axle, width is important, but the rest can be changed easily with a grinder and welder, the bolt pattern on the propshaft doesn't need to match so long as you get hold of the diff end flange or the full shaft from the donor vehicle, plenty of places do propshaft repairs and alterations for the custom car lads.

Not sure if you lads are aware, but there is a new self build forum, started by some ex SBMCC members and is run by Jim who owns Motorhomefun http://www.diymotorhome.co.uk/community/ it is also a free site, for now anyway.

Ross if the above bothers you in any way, please delete it.
