Default T4 Panel van kerb weight?

Hi guys, Does anyone know the kerb weight on a 1998 2.4D SWB Panel van?

Also as a secondary question does anyone have any idea what the differences are between an AJA and an AAB engine? Thanks.

the curb weight is the combined weight of the vehicle and all fuel etc, i believe its about 2500 kg? but the combined axle weight is around 3000kg, which is what you need to pay attention to when getting tyres etc,

The AJA was the updated AAB 2.4 released in 1996, it featured a catalytic converter, a modified injection pump it resulted in about a 4 hp power drop.

Thanks for the reply. Does the fact that the AJA has a catalytic converter mean that it can have it removed to gain the 4bhp back?

That sounds way too high to me!

I've got a 2.5TDi LWB 1200 (uprated heavy load suspension) and that only weighs in at 1680kg.

Even with fuel & passengers it should still be below 2000kg, so your SWB should be even less!

Just found this:
Curb weight (US English) or Kerb weight (UK/Commonwealth English) is the total weight of a vehicle with standard equipment, all necessary operating consumables (e.g. motor oil and coolant), a full tank of fuel, while not loaded with either passengers or cargo.[1][2]
Another article states that the Panel Van kerb weight is 1595KG. Does this seem about right?

That sounds right although if you're needing the weight for tyres you need to follow the axle weight.

[QUOTE=Jim Doodle;493752]Yep you sure can,

I have just been under the van and I have a round Bosal box on the front section stamped 02-06. Being a round box I assume that this is a silencer and not a Cat? I assume then that the Cat has already been removed??
