    The wiring is a bit complex until you've studied it for a while... Basically don't strip or unplug anything till you've labelled it.
    I've still got all my notes and printed guides, which I read and almost memorised before doing mine.
    If you're breaking the car yourself it's easier...
    There's a few of us on here that have done the conversion, so plenty of help if you get stuck!

    And I reckon you're only just down the road from me if you get truly stuck...

    Afternoon you lovely lot. I actually got round to tinkering with the van today and it runs just! I still have to sort out the throttle pump spindle as its pissing out but wondering if that was one of the causes it running like a bag of shite. Also gotta do the timing lift as reg has instructed me too. Just wanted to hear life before I did anything I do have a video but I cant upload it on here.

    leaking spindle normally does not cause running issues but may affect starting.

    You repairing the spindle - I have a guide and the parts if you need them.
