    Fuel tank check valve

    The tank was definitely subjected to a vacuum implosion. Inspecting the breather valve showed it working (just), so I suspect there has been moisture in the valve which froze. I've installed a new alloy one. I found a custom tank builder, who luckily builds a number of tanks for certain...

    My Fuso4x4

    If your Euro-spec Fuso is the same as mine, it probably does not have a low- range transfer case. If you are expecting to 4x4 in terrain where such a steep departure angle is necessary, then a Euro-spec Fuso is probably not the best choice for the base vehicle. 6500kg / 2 axles = 3250 kg. The...

    My Fuso4x4

    Have you looked at the Woelcke company for layout ideas? - https://www.woelcke.de/expeditionsmobile They have built many campers on the Fuso chassis, some on the 3415mm wheelbase.

    My Fuso4x4

    That is Blissmobil's generic 13/15/17' layout, for vehicles such as MAN, Unimog etc that have a much higher rated front axle than the Fuso.

    My Fuso4x4

    Surely your spare wheel only needs to be high enough to clear the departure angle? How many litres of fresh water, and where will the tank/s be placed? Remember that the front axle load limit is only 2800kg, so it is not good to have them too far forward - in cab-chassis form, there is already...

    My FGB71 build

    @ Just my Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro (2020) phone, which can be pushed to 64MP. I gave up using cameras years ago, I find a good phone is all I need nowadays, and with the big screens that phones now have, I can edit and delete on the fly. The new Redmi Note 13 Pro 5G is 200MP, and way cheaper...

    Fuel tank check valve

    That's what I thought. If it's a vacuum issue, the fuel pump must have amazing strength to keep sucking. I've found a check valve that will do the job - a motorsport one that flows both ways til the vehicle goes past 90deg angle, basically a stainless ball bearing blocks the outlet so that...

    Fuel tank check valve

    Walking past our truck today, I noticed to my horror that the fuel tank is stoved in, and subsequently the fuel pump assy is mangled! Weirdly, every section except the two ends have some degree of inward deformation. I figure it is one of two things... a) someone has backed into it b) it has...

    FGB71 rear shocks

    Koni Heavy Track equivalent for the rear is 30-1372. Still not found something off the shelf for the front, currently trawling through the Rancho online catalogue for something close in the dimensions. Found these in WA, they look to be rebranded, and possibly only OEM performance spec - I was...

    My Box

    A stepped subframe and a 4-point torsion-free mounting is viable, it's what we did with our Canter - it allowed us to have a 2080mm interior height for the majority of the box. It might just be that if you go with Azimoo, they will want to build it the way they want and/or know. Have you looked...

    Introducing Rosa, FG bus build

    My parents had a Rosa camper in NZ, but only 2wd auto I'm afraid. It didn't stop them doing a lot of gravel roads though, and only once had an issue on tour when new front disc pads required replacing. The bus was a used jap import (still had it's last tachograph paper disc from Japan in its...

    It's a rort really - it's 66% water and 33% urea (a by-product from the porcine farming industry, so pig p***)!

    2017 Fuso Canter FG4x4 Expedition Camper Project

    Aw, shucks. As everyone knows, all campers are a compromise! We are 4m x 2m internally, so a lot can be done with that extra 400mm length you've got. My build was how I saw things in my head, partly resolving issues in our previous build, and I'm sure there are plenty of things that will have...
