Beach Buggy General Help / Battery box
« on: April 06, 2021, 09:37:39 AM »
Hi my battery is in the passenger side foot well, not a prob don't want to move it but what is the best way to cover it? Was going to use checker plate but been told should not cover with metal (I am not a mechanic obviously), would a plastic battery box be the best solution or any other ideas.  Advice appreciated. Cheers Deb

Beach Buggy General Help / Cutting out
« on: March 10, 2021, 04:14:00 PM »

Hi All buggy has been going really well, starts first time, passed mot and been running good when I have used it locally, but had a flat spot when accelerating.  So and this could be a mistake had it converted to electronic ignition and had a vacuum advance distributor put on it.  Still starts and runs fab, ticks over fine but cutting out now when I slow down at junctions/roundabouts. Any ideas please what it could be?  The guy I normally go to is too busy at the moment to look at it so was wondering could it be something simple.  (I am hoping). 👍

Beach Buggy Body and Chassis Help / Bodywork holes
« on: December 15, 2020, 01:30:07 PM »
Hi probably silly question for those who know, but due to moving mirrors and number plate I have ended up with a few unwanted holes, my buggy is not going to be a show buggy so would rubber grommets be ok or is there some other simple fix.  I a worried about rain getting in under the fibre glass. Cheers Deb

Beach Buggy Engine and Exhaust Help / Carb
« on: June 27, 2020, 04:30:06 PM »
Hi nearly but not quite there yet with my buggy, might be a silly question but just noticed the step cam missing from my carb would this make a difference because my buggy will not tick over, choke needing to stay out a little not for it to stall.  If I need a step cam where is the best place to buy one please. Cheers Deb

Beach Buggy Body and Chassis Help / Wing piping
« on: May 04, 2020, 07:23:06 PM »
Hi All, waiting for one part before putting bonnet etc back on but need to order wing piping think that's what it's called, I mean the rubber between the wing and bonnet.  Previously there was mastic holding it on but apart from not looking brill it's a pain to clean off when we have to take the bonnet off.
My question is, looked on woolies but unsure which one I would need, needs to be deep at the bottom of the T. If that makes sense. Any help please. Cheers Deb

Beach Buggy Rolling Chassis Help / Steering damper
« on: April 13, 2020, 10:43:31 AM »
Hi All any advice appreciated.  Discovered that my steering damper has been rubbing my fuel tank, so need to raise the front of the new tank to avoid this happening again, but can only go up approx an inch due to the bonnet going back on.  Will this be enough or will when driving the suspension will lower it so that it will rub again.  Cheers Deb

« on: December 27, 2019, 06:40:52 PM »
Hi wishing everyone a happy new year before asking a question.  Just checking my buggy has a 34Pict-3 carb is this the correct one for a 1972 1300cc dual port engine. My engine seems to be cutting out and difficulty starting since fixing the leak on the petrol tank. Appreciate thoughts on this please. Deb 👍

Beach Buggy Engine and Exhaust Help / Fan shroud?
« on: October 15, 2019, 10:38:33 AM »
Hi forgive me if this is a question in the wrong area.  Possibly on the fan shroud there are two holes believe they used to be for the heating? My question is should they or not have plugs in them, would it make any difference to the buggy?  Sorry if silly question but I am trying to learn and I am dipsy. Thoughts would be good. Cheers Deb

Hi just a question, pulled the cobra Monaco seats out of my LWB RAT and wanted to know if it's cheaper to have seats recovered or replace with used seats?  Any input on prices or info appreciated. Cheers Deb
