Beach Buggy Rolling Chassis Help / Rear Axle Tubes
« on: January 25, 2016, 06:14:41 PM »
As some of you may be aware my rear tube side plate has become porous and leaks gearbox oil.

So I have managed to get another donor gearbox with tubes shafts and brakes etc.

I'm trying to get the tubes off without any luck

I have removed the hub assemble and unbolted the plate from the side of the box but now cannot get the inner bearing to move to allow the tube to slide out.

Can anyone advise me how?






Thanks Gary

Hi all

We have had noticification that we have a Buggy club stand next year

Would anyone like to volunteer to show their buggy for a day or even all weekend?

It gets you free entry to the show and as many cups of tea or coffee you can drink and probably as many biscuits you can eat too.

Let me know

How can I keep logged in? Even when I tick the box it logs me out every time.

Doing my head in, used to stay logged in until the forum was over hauled

Beach Buggy General Help / Gear oil leak
« on: July 09, 2015, 03:25:43 PM »
So as some of you guys know I've been suffering from a gear oil leak, firstly I thought it was something to do with the missing nuts holding the case together but after replacing nuts it appears not so closer inspection it looked like the gaiter was letting by so promptly replaced this.

Still leaking, so this time with a small inspection torch and the car in the air for better access I found this





It appears the side plates are letting oil through what looks like welded imperfections that go all the way round

Anyone else had this?
