Mucky Monday...Day one in the Damp Morph house.

Well, today I managed to get the cylinder heads back on. Spent alot of time
preparing everything in readiness for the rebuilding. Morph sadly has a leak
on his roof...possibly due to being parked on the flat so I've never noticed
it before (normally parked on a slope). Needless to say internally he
resembles the inside of a fridge freezer this morning. Parts of my roofing
will need replacement and It's so damp other parts look like they would do
well to be replaced as well. Anyway hopefully tomorrow I may get chance to
breath some life back into him again, Well I can live in hope anyway. Got to
refit the rocker covers, plumb up and link up the carbs. Refit the Oil
cooler hoses and also refit the bottom hose.

Fortunately I have the genny running powering a flood lamp inside and also
charging the auxilary battery whilst the Eberspacher heater roasted my bonce
while working away. Certainly got rid of the damp :-) .... till tomorrow no
doubt :-(

Ah well ....getting there now :0)

Oh yeahs, been there and definately got the once frosty tee shirt ;0)

What bit's letting you down?

I had to strip the pump and give it a jolly good clean. Gave the metering
pump some rat ta tap tap therapy and replaced all the hoses. Absoloutley
beltingly cracking bit of kit.

I recall a few winters ago seeing the hard frost outside. I was on Earlies
(7am start) so went out and bunged the Eber on. Finished my cornflakes and
brew and then off to work on my defrosted Ambi warm as toast :0)

Morph also had a preheater "carmichale" branded installed in the bottom
hose. I've removed it as it's showing a very slight leakage between Live and
earth and also Neutral and earth, dunno if that normal but given I'm
unlikely to use it hardly worth the cost of replacement. He also has a mains
wire running down towards the battery box too but I've yet to investigate
what thats all about. Possibly a battery charger??

I don't see why the roof couldn't be a single sheet of ali, you can get
pieces at least as big as an ambi roof, from the likes of Aalco,

My roof used to leak like a sieve. I think i got about 3 or 4 inches
of water inside one end of the back at one point before it found an
overflow point. It was 'orrible.

Mine leaked through all the rivets that held the roof crosses on. I
removed the crosses and surrounds totally and bought 2 sheets of
chequer plate and had them cut to size to fit over the top of the rear
section. They are fixed down with bolts at the edges (which now have
brackets fixed to them for possible roof rackage) over the support
struts and have many tubes of silicon underneath.

Trouble is that you need dry weather to put silicone on the roof. I
did mine in the winter. It still leaked and so i borrowed a barn for a
few weekends and redid it in the summer. Perfect now! :)

I cant find all my pictures right now,but here are some:

Its a 101 right of passage

On mine the main pump was the problem. I had to strip it down and give
it the usual light beating and swearing at. I also had to clean up the
contacts with sandpaper i think and remove the rust and gunk and it
kicked in.

Its funny seeing all the steam coming off the eber exhaust when its
running.

I suspect it's where the front cammo net thing was as I've removed it to
repair it. The rest so far is fine, but that is only a present thing as I
still have to remove the badly rusted roof cross hinges in which case I
reckon I'll be going down similar lines to yourself.

Does the fuel pump work independantly if you power it from elsewhere?
