Portuguese Mini Moke Californian 1984

Post by justkliving » Wed Jan 25, 2017 10:12

Hello everyone!

My name is Maria, I'm from Portugal and I just got myself a 1984 Mini Moke Californian. I'm hooked!! Totally love it.
And the first question that I have is how much should I fill the tires? Because they seem to me a little flat and I don't have a manual. I want to get it right. What do you recommend?

Cheers

Maria

Hi Maria

I have an English Moke and I run on 32 psi all round whether loaded or not and that seems to work well.

Have fun with yours and see you in 2018 !

Kind regards

Hi Jez!

Thank you for the recommendation! I'll try that.

Here's a photo of my moke by the way.

Cheers

And me imagining a international meet up in Portugal... That's disappointing!

Hi and welcome to the forum.
I think Jez is refering to the fact that the IMM in 2018 will be in Portugal!

Eh eh eh... It would only be me. The logistics of going with my little Moke to Ireland would be too huge for me

Hello everyone!

Well...

My moke is with the mechanic. It started to have a leak.
It turns out that the water pump has to be replaced...
It has beem 3 week days and they still don't have the car ready...
Is it difficult to find a water pump for a moke?

It shouldn't be too hard to get a water pump, not in the uk anyway. Perhaps they've had to order one from over here

They installed the water pump and I have the car now. It took this long because they had to order it from another city.
Now I'm ready to rock n'moke again!!!

I took some photos of the original water pump that was replaced...
It's a shame... But it really does look old Image
