Re: panda 4x4 LHD to RHD conversion

didn't realize the 4x4 wheels were different. my spare is a 4x4 the car only came with one. paint job looks decidedly amateurish up close but a bit of dirt will help that. i am more used to working with diesel engines than petrol and this air lock problem keeps reminding me that a mouth full of petrol tastes worse. gona buy some new fuel hose and move the fuel pump down beside the tank. horn not working either need that for mot.

Re: panda 4x4 LHD to RHD conversion

trying to make this electric pump work reliably is not so easy keep either drawing in air or vapor locking despite being now mounted as close to the tank as possible and having been resealed several times. i am considering my next move
A improvise some sort of return line to bleed air out of system.
B fit an in tank high pressure pump and pressure regulator.
C replace existing pump with similar pump that costs more than 12.99.
D some combination of the above.

i cant use mechanical pump as apparently i don't have a lobe on my camshaft to drive it

panda 4x4 LHD to RHD conversion

Have you got exactly the same amount of turns from centre to left as right ? If not you have the rack off set and wheel may be rubbing on the arch inner wing !!!! May also need rack sims adding to add more riditance backlash when turning

Re: panda 4x4 LHD to RHD conversion

On the way i filled up when i came back from paying there was a puddle of petrol under the car (i suspect the fuel gage sender) i pretended not to notice and drove off quickly its not leaking any more.

Re: panda 4x4 LHD to RHD conversion

Is the fuel filler neck on properly? I know ours wasn't fully pushed on when we got it and couldnt fill more than 3/4 of a tank without it pouring out. Another jubilee clip helped until it was properly sorted.

Re: panda 4x4 LHD to RHD conversion

I bought a cork seal and some hylomar to fix the fuel tank leak but it might have fixed its self. the fuel pump also apears to be improving with age. on my 3rd fan belt. have removed the rear propshaft as it was vibrating badly at speeds over 40, caution to all those who rebuild there popshafts make sure everything is marked. haven't finished my off rack or fitted stereo, sump guard or bullbars yet.
think my bakes bind a bit but it helps to lift the pedal with my toe, I fitted a extra spring to pedal but it hasn't eradicated the problem. perhaps that's why may fuel economy is not great. get box deals bit lumpy, has any one rebuilt one ? but I have been do ing a few miles in the car and it always gets me home. o and the heat isn't great.
