Re: Mazdabongocampervans.co.uk - any experience

If I were based in North Yorks I certainly would not be travelling all the way to Suffok to buy a converted Bongo when there are others available nearby. Bongospares near Halifax for instance. And don't rule out private sales on Facebook Marketplace and Autotrader. Also worth looking up Stuart Coate...

Re: White smoke!!?

You have all the signs of a cracked cylinder head. As Geoff says, it's not the head gasket, it's the whole cylinder head. The vehicle should not be driven at all and should be recovered to your nearest Bongo friendly garage. Driving it can damage the engine block. The cylinder head will need replaci...

Re: Parts No Longer Available

Checked with Japan and part is no longer manufactured. Did a cross reference and part is not compatible with other vehicles. Sorry about that.

Re: Centre console switch panel

Sarry. No selling allowed on the open part of the Forum. As you are a first time poster we will overlook it this time but please don't do it again. Instead, for items under £100 use the free Classifieds section at viewforum.php?f=68

That's not a part number. That's a Drawing Number. Which page of the EPC was it on? What's the description?

Re: Suspected 12v Water Pump Issue

Exactly the same thing happened to me a few weeks ago. Mine was a New Dawn conversion. Pump clicked but no whirring noise. Ordered and replaced the pump (5 minute job) and all was well.

Re: Bongo’s in new ULEZ zone Central London

That makes sense. Now how can we get TFL to put Bongos on their database? That's not possible I'm afraid. TfL, along with other local authorities who will be introducing similar measures, rely on the engine type associated with the vehicle registration. And as the engine type on the Bongo does not ...

ALL Bongos have to pay the ULEZ charge as they are not on the TfL database.

Re: Bongo Fest South West 10th to 14th September

Well done all those who attended for obeying the social distancing rules. And well done to Dylan Cook (below) for winning this year's crabbing competition. Not only did he inherit the trophy for 12 months he also received a crab money box and some other naff prize. crabbing4.jpg crabbing2.jpg And he...

John Sheldrick (Francophile1947) RIP

Sad news from Norwich. John Sheldrick passed away at the beginning of August. I was informed by his son, Aidan. Until recently John, who was awarded lifetime Bongo Fury membership, was an active participant and volunteer at many of the club meetings. He was also a moderator here on the Forum. He wil...
