VW Parts For Sale / Few bits I need rid of
« on: December 03, 2017, 09:34:22 PM »
I have a few bits I need to sell on

I have a pair of plastic high back bucket seats think they are about £100 each new. They are dirty but being plastic and wipe over should see them good again. Looking for £85 the pair

A pair of used mx5 seats £35 pair.

A sand rail steering rack (quick rack) never used but has weathering. With tie rods £60

A Jamar peddle box for hydraulic clutch and brakes. Cable throttle with a adjustable mounting plate new they are lots of money. Looking for £50

After last years wash out we are going to try again to do our run to the ace cafe, we should see the sights of London before getting some quality food at the ace cafe

Good fun day behind the wheel of your machine. All road laws to be complied with at all times, except maybe in the tunnels

We will be starting at 10am from Thurrock Services just off the M25/A13 junction and then stopping off at Beckton Retail Park just off the A13/A406 junction for those coming from the North/Midlands this maybe easier

Beach Buggy Engine and Exhaust Help / Temperatures
« on: May 20, 2017, 03:55:23 PM »
Bit of advice from the gurus please

I've had a problem with No.1 cylinder where it wasn't getting hot. Found that it was the idle jet blocked so cleared this through and now it gets hot.

So I thought I'd measure the temperature of all cylinders by use of a hand held infra red temperature gauge.

I only idled the engine until it reached full temperature

The results are

1. 134c
2. 114c
3. 71c
4. 118c

I'm happy with 1,2&4 but 3 seems low. I took the temperature from the exhaust pipe immediately after it left the head.

The engine seems to be running right and idles perfectly.

Any thoughts on this?

Beach Buggy General Help / V5c
« on: February 26, 2017, 08:10:54 PM »
I recently bought a chassis with a log book.

The car hasn't been on the road for many years.

I sent the document off and yesterday received a letter back asking for a photo of the chassis number. Which isn't a problem but they also want a photo of the car with registration plate and the vin plate too. Now this is an issue as I've only bought the chassis.

What's my best course of action?

But I'll need a few bits first

Chassis with good frame head

Steering box

Steering column

Fanshroud for a TP engine

Standard carb for 1300 engine

Pulley nut (standard type if possible)
