Post by tim leech » Tue Feb 14, 2006 5:45 pm

The chap from the BX16v is still interested but wants to know if my TZD has a bosch fuel pump, anyway I can tell?

Ken did you notice what was on it?

No idea, but the Lucas/CAV one is very squarish looking where as the Bosch one is very nobbly.

Can you post a picture or compare it to Haynes manual.

Hi on mine the word BOSCH is in raised lettering on the side facing the radiator, it needs a "clean" pump to see it.
Cheers
Geoff.

Easy - cold start cable goes to the back of the Bosch pump, and to the front of a Lucas one 8)

I think that means you can run it safely on Veg Oil which can be the only reason the guy asked the question........might be worth keeping if it all got really expensive one day.

Got one in France, '90 auto' diesel lhd (eng reg) 200kms with towbar. One other owner (german), absolutely pristine (well it was last time I saw it in Nov). Just need a top spec diesel estate with T/bar for trips to and from until the need for to and fro has gone and I can stay there and live for the whole year in France on what I pay in Rates/poll tax; call it what you will, in rip off Britain.

Off topic (sorry) but what you say is true. I lived in France and, for us, the equivalent of council tax was 30% of what it is here!

Like I said Tim if it was an estate with a towbar for my trailer I'd be biting your arm off. I can sense that you are keen to sell and I could be in the market for it in a few weeks but I don't know how long it will be....just got to sell a CX Estate first........SWMBO is adamant that there are too many cars at maison Gilles.

Yeah, try telling that to most French folk who believe that GB is some fairyland where you make loadsamoney and pay no taxes ! Oh, they do admit the NHS is crap, though...
