Beach Buggy Engine and Exhaust Help / Re: Head re-torque
« on: April 05, 2021, 04:29:17 PM »
Main case studs why you are at it . All ways torque vw head studs up do not FT them its ok on a lot of thing but vw aircooled engines get wider in doing so a 30lbf may be at 70??? when hot and why they pull studs why hot.. If I'm going build a engine I will torque them way past stock If they pull its case saver times best to have a stud pull why still in bits .... I all ways test low studs if they are ok more and likey tops will be as well

Beach Buggy IVA / SVA Help / Re: saloon on log book
« on: February 22, 2021, 11:23:06 AM »
I may have been the one on Facebook that picked on it Sorry? but it save on someone buying it and? getting a letter from the dvla.......Still with convertible on they are not a 100% ok as the vin would need to be type 15 and the Dvla would know when convertible was added.. ... If I was to buy it" I would send the v5 off as is! with saloon on as I know the sh!t may hit the fan If  buggy or convertible was put in for and keep an eye out for a chassis and v5 that has the right heading" on the v5..

With all of this it all ok to you? are in court and then then it needs to be all up to date.. I was talking to a 4x4 guy that was in a big crash and someone past away... why doing a road rally in 2018 he had beedlock wheels on the 4x4 it had an mot and a full logbook of work he had been pulled by the police and not a thing ...The landy was re mot by vosa. He end up with No insurance why as beedlooks are not Dot or E marked so making them not for UK road use as so no UK insurance can cover them...

So do ANPR cameras, speed cameras, mobile phone use cameras, Lidl car park cameras etc use the DVLA or DVSA data bases for vehicle descriptions?

I'm thinking DVLA are more concerned with road tax and getting $$$ from Parking Eye etc for your details and DVSA are more concerned if you're MOTd or not.

Any idea how I can find what DVSA have a vehicle described as? :-\ I'm not going to ask them as I've found them to be bigger idiots that the Swansea lot.
Hpi check is the best way.. Some time cars come up on hpi check and not on tax checker

 004 to 006 was about 71? As people would Drive there VW's to a Garage for maintenance etc and It takes hour's for the engine to go back to size So the valves would be set why the engine was still Wide/Hot So VW made it 006 to be on the safe side.......So as long as the engine has not been used for like 24hrs? Set it at 004....

Like buggy clubs they come and go :-X..   Dubfreeze was all ways cooled and wet.. I would only go for the used parts and that got less and less over the years. In the days of only 5?? VW shows a year. I would put money and time in to go as there was a big gap in show. now I got 6? shows In less and 100miles..      And like my sister she would be on the go all?? the time to put on 3 shows for charity... To day I was talking to her and she is stopping as they are a lot of work c19 is not helping and why take the sh!t from Facebook etc for like the one they had in March as 25! got packing ticket and the big one" It is the same people that set up and clean up Why the charity and there people just show up take the money and go for a meal just before clean up time I was the same at like EBI show 12 cars? would dive in on? Friday from the club but the same old 4! people would set up the club stand and do all the work to get them there 2 people left :D the club and now it is no more..

Less work to use 2m of 8mm? steel pipe bend the pipe a bit and go in from the beam end plate and slide it in and out the frame fork leg hole.. And bend the tank end so it will just pull in the front hole ..pull in and bend as needed and p-clips and nut&bolt it to the tunnel side. bit of work but not impossible..

I did my my friends oval bug .. On its last run out he used no e fuel just 99Octane and Then I drained the tank and ran it out of fuel...Fuel lines in bin!. Put it up on stands .Rockers off You do not need to but why not as it keeps the valves closed..Drained oil out and refilled to the cam was in oil. Battery off. Floor mats up/out coil lead off .Did a list put on steering wheel....8 years past ......mats back down. New fuel lines on. New battery on fuel in tank .Rockers back on A good look over and spun it up to oil light off .coil lead back on and ran it up for 1/2hr! Had good look under it and then drain the oil back down. Off stands A good wash and give it a good trip out 12 photos later and it was put on ebay...
