I then upgraded

It was fitted with 2 x Dual 45 Mil Delioth Carburettors,LYNX maniford. extractors, CD sound system, Central Locking, Bubble Windows, One piece Tail shaft, Alison Electronic Ignition System (ie Pointless System) ,
worked Cam (530B grind) and the motor has been Balanced .
Had to move the Battery to behind the drivers seat to fit the carbies.

After a few years I put a RS2000 front Nose on it, making it a very special Looking van,
The Yellow van with the Black Bubble Windows really make a great looking Van.
It is awaiting a little more restoration as theres a little rust that needs to be evicted
and I want to strip the carburettors down and fit a new linkage system.
