    Engine overheating?

    I’ve been running Biral cylinders with Hypereutectic slipper pistons in a 96x80 (2316cc) Type 4 engine for a few years now. Heads are 41x34, standard heat exchangers, 42mm CSP Python exhaust, 28-row external oil cooler. No overheating pushing a heavy Westy.

    It's the wipers. Only Oz buses have the wipers correct for RHD.

    No name or exact address on the website but if that is who I think it is, I wouldn’t go there again.

    Fuel in crank case.

    Worn out needle valves are probably the cause of the fuel in oil, unlikely to be the floats but it's obviously a possibility. Viton tipped float valves for IDFs are available from Classic Carbs UK or Eurocarb, and are well worth fitting. Check the float height after fitting new valves.
