Frida - VW T25 Devon Sunrise

Postby Frida » 04 Jul 2018, 21:55

Hi, having recently taking ownership of Frida (a 1986 VW T25 Devon Sunrise), she's stood for a wee while prior to me buying her. Have had to replace the fuel tank and carburettor.. What other joys have I got to look forward to replacing?

Hi. Welcome to to the joys of T25 ownership.
Do you know what engine your Devon has? Assuming it is water-cooled, suggest you get the front to rear pipes checked. Do a full service, change coolant, check tyres for perishing, the list could be long...
Most of all, sign up for breakdown cover and get out and about in your van. Have fun!

HT leads, dizzy cap, rotor arm and vacuum hoses are always a good bet to avoid future problems in those areas.

Consider changing the oil in the gear box too. Although it's supposed to last for ever, the black crud that came out of mine showed that it was a worthwhile exercise.
