Rambler AUTO SLEEPER

My name is Glen and my wife's name is Margaret. 3 months ago my wife treated herself to a 1990 Talbot Express Rambler Auto sleeper. Petrol model. Although we were given the drivers manual there is no such Manual for the Auto Sleeper. Whist googling for help I came across this site so decided to join to see if I can get help with any problems etc. I live in Southport.

At long last found someone with a van just like mine. How long have you had it.
The gear change is rather difficult but I think it might be due to me driving an automatic Honda Jazz everyday.
How I wish I had Power steering, I am thinking of having it fitted next year, its called EPS have you heard of it?
Have you by any chance got a manual for the auto sleeper side of the vehice

sorry to tell you but no I have not got a manual for it. and no the gear change is not you. it is a fault they have all got. I will try to find the site you can go to that can help you with it. but eps a big yes I got mine done by a chappie at stratford. he charged me £600. and done it in a day. it is great. I will also see if my son has still got the dvd about the talbart... I have had mine since new so have had it for 24 years. if I can help you I will. my name is mike. and my tele phone is 07977560533. good luck. but I will get back in touch.

Thanks Mike I have made a note of the phone number, keep in touch.
There is a firm who fits ESP in Bolton and charges £650 and does it in 4 to 5 hrs., it's a bit nearer than Strafford. Trying to find out if anyone else has used this Bolton Firm.
Many Thanks
Glen

Welcome
I used to have a Talbot before my present van and found a lot of info on the following site www.talbotoc.com . I think a few had talismans so may be able to help with manuals etc. As regards the gear box there is a lot of info on this site but just be gentle with it and take your time and all should be ok .
