T4 Post Icon Hello from Manchester

Hello, I've just bought my first T4,




Its a '91 panel van 1.9D engine needs replacing as it has two big dirty holes and bits falling out. I've managed to source a 1.9td complete with sub frame and gearbox with 78k miles.

Needs some work such as o/s wing & lower arch, dents and bumps need sorting, engine putting in obviously. I work all over the country so going to be converting it and will be needing some windows and other bits.

I'll start a thread and keep you guys updated of the progress!

Takes me back 25 or so years where it all started for me ..................... white Transporter.

Good luck with the project and enjoy the journey; although the tickets are a bit expensive

T4 Post Icon Re: Hello from Manchester

So my some good friends of mine helped me out tonight and we managed to get the engine in and fired up! After some messing about swapping the fuel pump solenoid to bypass the immobiliser as the 1.9td lump i bought is from a later model.

Just need to link up the driveshafts and linkage now, rad on.

Fires up first time now so pretty happy with the progress so far, can anybody recommend anybody in the Manchester area for mobile dent removal

Cheers guys
