Parts Wanted / Centre Pad/Puck & spring clip for clutch pressure plate
« on: November 23, 2020, 08:00:16 PM »
Hi all,

As it says above please, I'm fitting a different clutch pressure plate but I need a pad that fits on the centre as I have an old style clutch system.
This part could have been removed and not used by you as you have the later type of clutch system so it could be sitting on a shelf in your workshop not being used and just getting old.

Just let me know.

Beach Buggy General Help / Removing Chrome coating?
« on: February 10, 2020, 07:38:04 PM »
Right then...

I have a few large chrome coated metal parts that I would like to get powder coated, but I need to de-chrome the coating so that powder-coating is then possible. What I'm asking is how the hell do you de-chrome them?

I'm sure someone can point me in the right direction.

Mickyb and I are aiming to meet up and pop over to "The Hogs back" just outside Guildford to watch the Vulcan fly past tomorrow afternoon, I think there is a cafe there and thats where we will probably end up.

Your most welcome to join us..

Here are more details, if your interested and want to join us let me know on here.

Parts Wanted / Fuel tank connecting piece
« on: July 07, 2015, 08:00:25 AM »
Guy's I'm putting together a small fuel tank for my test rig and I would like to use the standard tank connector like this


so my ask is does any one have an old tank knocking about that's knackered but the threaded part at the bottom is usable and they would be able to cut it out with a bit of extra metal around it so I can braise it onto my small tank.

Cheers Guys H

Guys I have just put together a test rig to run engines on, and, I have used a t3 bellhousing, now my question is,

Although the T1 eng bolts onto it, the depth of the area where the starter motor mounts is 10mm deeper from the engine,
so does this mean I'm unable to use the T1 eng with a 200mm standard flywheel or can I just get a type 3 starter and all should work?

Over to you!!!!!!!

Parts Wanted / Gearbox cradle needed.
« on: March 22, 2015, 08:01:38 PM »
Hi all,

Looking for a g/box cradle for a 1970ish beetle, the bit where the rear gearbox mounts attach and fixes to the frame horns, I don't think there are any versions they seem to be all the same.
Happy to collect at Volksworld thats why I'm asking now.

Cheers H
