I bought this van in August 2020 to use for some residential maintenance work that I had taken on, at possibly the worst time in the history of the world. (Apart from maybe August 1939). I only used it for a few weeks and drove it less than 1000 miles, but it was reliable during that time.
As you can see in the photos, the van has been standing for the past 8 months.
The rear wheels have seized up, and the van will be required trailering away, with a rear-end lift or skids under the rear wheels to winch it onto a flatbed or trailer. (Unless you a neat trick for freeing up the wheels).
Since it's been standing the glow plugs are no longer light.
But you can light them by connecting the 12v supply under the bonnet.
The engine then starts the first time. No engine smoke.
