Yes they will fit

Picture needed. I'm having trouble visualizing how these would lineup with the W463 flares.

Area lighting around the CampTop

Meant to document this back when I made it. We often arrive at campsites way-way after dark. The CampTop lends itself very nicely to lighting the nearby area with gentle non-glare light.

Re: PTO Air compressor

Might want to check, my electric compressors work both directions. There is no timing mechanism, so function is entirely driven by the piston moving back and forth.

Re: PTO Air compressor

I suppose you could put accessories on both. The compressor probably doesn't use much power if the pressurized side is vented. Does it work in both directions of shaft rotation?

Re: Air in Fuel Lines.

In my experience, air gets in more easily than diesel gets out. Watch the lines for a growing bubble. BTW, there will often be a bubble right at the coarse filter, just watch that it doesn't grow over time. Obviously, any diesel wetness is a problem.

Re: New to G wagens...help needed

If you are talking about the small post on the starter, that should only get 12V when actually cranking. You can short the +12 big post to that and it should crank. That should not have +12 when the engine is merely "on". The ECU should get +12 at that point, but I don't have a wiring diag...
