Default Engine smell in cab of Brumby

Hi Folks,

My Brumby is going well, new seats etc. Love the little ute.

Are they all so smelly inside of should I check the ventilation system. Any clues as to why they normally smell so fumie? Exhaust system is sound.

I imagine with age all the seals don't seal so well anymore?

Thanks Kevin,
Would that be the seals in the firewall or in the ventilation system of the pollution set up, I may have answered my own question, all seals

Check your selector shift boot for a hole.

Then ensure your door seals are doing their job properly.

Another thing to check is the crank ventilation system is plumbed in properly, otherwise you'll be venting to atmosphere and creating the smells you're no doubt smelling

Cheers

Bennie
