Re: So is it time to discuss the effects of Ethanol on Bongo's?

I'm opening this up for discussion again because a club member has asked if there was any further news. Here's a summary of what we know so far: E10 petrol consists of 10% ethanol and 90% petroleum E5 (5%) is currently found on UK forecourts To meet emissions targets it is the intention of the UK go...

Re: membership payment

If you are Stephen from Wolverhampton it was processed on Monday 11th. We sent you a welcome email with your log in details; maybe it caught in your Hotmail spam filters? Your new members pack/card should also have arrived by now but there are serious postal delays around the UK due to staff shortag...

Re: Hello ! Newbie Introduction

Alex at Calder Campers is a nice bloke and doesn't bring dodgy vehicles in to the country. He has been importing and converting Bongos (and other vehicles) for at least 15 years that I now of and lots of club members have bought Bongos from him.

Re: Banjo Filter

I've just tried to order some more Banjo filters and springs from our supplier but have been told the manufacturers have given a date of 4 to 6 months for delivery and will only re-manufacture if I order 200 of them. We currently have 1 filter and 4 springs left. I have the Bosch and Zexel part numb...

Re: new member

Just a thought, but could it be air being sucked in to the fuel system? There are 2 o rings on the fuel pump that are known to perish over a period of time.

Re: Horn Rewiring

I'm spending my lockdown hours writing and revising various fact sheets. I'm writing a brand new one about the horn, and need to clarify an issue about the fuse. According to the list I have the horn is fuse number 5 (top row by driver knee, 5 from the left, red 10 amp) on pre-September 01 Bongos, b...

Re: alternative to NDC roof rack/rails?

Ian did have a firm in Sheffield that made a very good one but there no longer available, they ran the length down the sides between the fixing bolts and you added as many cross roof beams as you wanted, plus they allowed you to fit a solar panel nicely as well. Any chance Ian that there could be a...

Re: Lamda sensor for 2005 Bongo 2.0 petrol

The type of Lambda sensor you need will depend on your chassis number. Bongoland have all types in stock, but they are genuine Mazda parts and not cheap. See https://bongoland.co.uk/product-categor ... cs/page/3/

Re: Wiring Diagram

It doesn't sound like it's worth the effort to re-jig every diagram, especially when it only covers "old" shape Bongos. I have the originals, we have the whole lot on CD, and each page has been scanned as a jpg image file. At some point I will make them available for download free of charge......ano...

Wiring Diagram

Currently there are 2 ways of accessing the wiring manual. 1) Buy a CD from the Bongoland shop (see https://bongoland.co.uk/product/wiring-manual/); or 2) Visit Geoff's website at http://www.g8dhe.net/bwm/ (earlier Bongos only) The latter method is free of charge but relies on you having the Flash p...
