Miscellaneous Technical / Re: Carbon Canisters. What's the go with them?
« on: September 23, 2009, 01:58:42 PM »
They are designed to capture the vapours from petrol from the tank and the carby.  They do not affect the performance of the vehicle like some polution add ons.  The carbon neutralises the vapour so it does not go into the atmosphere.  Another sort of connected conversation is the fuel cap.  The orange / plastic slip on ones are illegal for this reason.  They don't seal well enough to comply.  Likewise, when you have a carbon canister you have to have the "polution" petrol cap or you can have trouble with venting and fuel not getting to the carby.

Site Feedback / Spreadsheet of suppliers and parts needed
« on: September 21, 2009, 08:08:44 PM »
Hi There,
I posted this inside another posting then found this section.   :o

I'm wondering if there is someway on this forum where we can have an excel spreadsheet for us to update with part numbers/replacement part costs and contact details.  That way everyone knows to go to the one spot to check for suppliers and what parts are available.
EG didn't I see somewhere that LJ Steering rack boots fit a CF steering rack?  This is important info and could be kept in one spot for future reference.


Cheers

Neil

Hi guys,
Here are the prices and details:
RDS 8031 Front Door Rubber for CF Bedford swinging door $38.25 each
WSF 115 Front Windscreen seal CF Bedford $128.93

Door Rubbers x2 and Windscreen rubber x1 = $240.10 incl freight and GST

This sort of makes me wonder if there is someway on this forum where we can have an excel spreadsheet for us to update with part numbers/replacement part costs and contact details.  That way everyone knows to go to the one spot to check for suppliers and what parts are available.

Hi guys,
sorry about the late reply. I got a response from Rare Spares and they still carry the rubbers but not listed on the net.

They arrived yesterday and all looks good.

Cheers

Maintenance / Brand new screen and door rubbers
« on: August 24, 2009, 06:03:40 PM »
Hi guys,
Some time ago I went into the Australian "Rare Spares" manual and found that they sold replacement windscreen and door seal kits for the CF.   ;D


I just went in and there is no sign of Bedford rubbers at all.   ???

Has anyone bought new rubbers and seals and if so, where did you get them from?

Mine are RS and I want to fit new ones.

Cheers

Neil

Introduce Yourself / Hi Guys, I'm new and I own a Bedford "Mitchell"
« on: August 21, 2009, 07:20:50 PM »
 ;D
G'day all,
My name is Neil and i own a Bedford campervan.  It is a "Mitchell" made by "Independence" in SA in 1975.  It followed me home in 1998 and I was allowed to keep it... ;)

I live in Lismore in Northern NSW. I'm 54

It is a rough old thing that has had years of neglect and I get  a burst of energy every now and then and work madly on it for a while to get it ready for rego then leave if for months/years at a time.

My aim is to do some travelling in the next couple of years once I finish it and it wears a number plate.  My shorter term aim is, as I have the motor and front end out of it painting the cabin, is to have it back together enough by Christmas THIS YEAR (Private joke between me and my neighbour over exactly which Christmas as I have been saying this for a few years now) for it to "turn a wheel" again and drive up and down the driveway under it's own power.


Anyhow, that's me for now

Cheers

Neil
