VW Parts For Sale / Newton Aero 500 Alloy Fuel cap
« on: November 05, 2018, 06:21:00 PM »
Long shot for here but thought I'd give you first dibs !

https://www.speedflowshop.co.uk/aero-500-12-bolt-flange-670-512sl-1226-p.asp (ex VAT !)

Brand new, locking, but missing key (available from Newton). Beautiful Newton Aero fill cap. Bought as a secondary cap but just too small for my big hands - ideal for direct tank install. Half price at 70 inc postage

Feel like I should have cleaned the bench and put it on a red velvet cushion!

VW Parts For Sale / Bosch Starter Motor
« on: November 03, 2018, 04:15:43 PM »
I overhauled this and it worked fine before I took it off - it is far from new - but it is Bosch so probably an original.
Priced at 40 + post (5-10 at cost) as that's what JK will give you for it against a 200 refurbished one!

VW Parts For Sale / Brake drums and complete brake set up.
« on: November 03, 2018, 04:03:08 PM »
Continuing my clear out, I have 2 sets of rear brakes, these have 220 miles on them as they were replaced for the MOT before I got the buggy - then I took them off when I changed the suspension - along with the speedo so mileage noted.
A bit of surface rust from storage but as you can see virtually brand new inside, clips, cylinders and pads.  I am not sure what size cylinders they are though. Back plates included

I added this lot up from JK and it's over 200's worth.  The lot for 80 + 10 postage

Rather sell in one go but may split later.


VW Parts For Sale / AA code gearbox and parts
« on: October 31, 2018, 06:39:05 PM »
Beetle gear box and all the bits 150

On the IOW unfortunately. If the gearbox weighs less than 30kg it would be OK to ship but not sure.  All worked fine before I swapped it for Porsche parts - Box is missing the oil fill plug as I needed it for the new one!

Also (not included in this !) an almost unused rear drum brake set up and a very used starter motor will be available when I get round to sorting them out!

Proper expensive fancy timing light, induction and dial in
See http://www.gunson.co.uk/product/77008 for details.

Not been used much. 25 posted.

Beach Buggy Rolling Chassis Help / Front wheel camber
« on: July 02, 2018, 08:28:58 PM »
Too much of it and I can't adjust it out with the camber nut (bizarrely the car drives just fine.)
RHS is  OK, Everything looks (and measures) identical between the two sides- except the camber. I will be doing a complete front end overhaul - but rather not whilst the sun is shining. Any idea where to hunt further for the issue? 

After a great run out on Saturday I noticed I had the smallest weep of gearbox oil overnight, went to cinch up the bolts holding the plate to the gearbox to discover that the bottom right bolt had stripped the thread in the box. If I can get a 90deg drill head it looks like I can drill it right through  and  through-bolt. Can anyone confirm (002 box) ?

(Image nicked from a mate - but its now my box!)

Beach Buggy Rolling Chassis Help / Alternative Handbrake
« on: April 19, 2018, 07:30:48 PM »
The handbrake on the rail is looking a bit dubious - cables are all ok and modified to fit the 944 back end but really it needs stripping out and re-welding, a new bracket built etc. I have an MX5 one but it is single cable and I would have to shorten the cables to give room for a join.
Any recommendations for a double cable/cam type like the beetle one I can pick up off another car?

VW Parts For Sale / 1600 TP Engine for sale
« on: February 18, 2018, 02:57:19 PM »
Not had any local interest so far (Isle of Wight), so following this thread http://www.beachbuggy.info/index.php/topic,11201.0.html  , thought I would put it on here before the bay of evil.

VW Engine - running when I took it off a few weeks ago.

Mexico AS 41 Twinport AD prefix (50hp). Genuine Solex 34 carb. NO END FLOAT

Recent fan and housing on the top half, new electronic distributor (SVDA), new coil, new proper HT leads, fresh plugs, oil and oil screen, recent fuel pump, new fuel filter, new LHS pushrod tubes (RHS parts included), new idle solenoid, carb cleaned and serviced inc. new throttle seals. SACHS clutch

Has rear engine mounts for fitting to a Camper.

The engine came on my Sandrail and having replaced/upgraded some of the parts I put about 200 miles on it before deciding to swap it for something water cooled. It ran OK but needed a tune to get rid of a slight hesitation. Some spares included.

Exhausts are not included, but a pair of chrome and rust cannons can be if you want them.

Local ad with details and pics http://www.wightbay.com/ventnor/parts-accessories/1600cc-twin-port-beetle-camper-engine-5604585/

For forum members price is 680 + 60 for pallet shipping to most places but might be a tenner extra if you are very far north (or you can collect no problem!). Alternatively for 30 I can pallet it to Southampton for collection.

Beach Buggy Engine and Exhaust Help / Front mount on 002 gearbox in beetle
« on: November 07, 2017, 09:03:11 PM »
Hmm.. seems to of escaped my notice that the 002 Bus IRS box is not exactly a drop in for the bug box.
There is a knackered soft mount on the bug box but apparently most solutions are a hard mount. Also it appears that the gear shift ends up higher. How is everyone else doing it?

I am starting this for me but if others want to join in with their kit that would be good too. ;-)(-;

I have some VW parts, some of which came off my Sandrail, some of which came with the Sandrail, I'd like to support the charity swap meet (http://www.beachbuggy.info/index.php/topic,10632.0.html in case you missed it) but I am too far away for delivery.

So this is how it works, next post I will stick up some images of the bits I have, make an offer in the thread for some of it or all of it, if others want the same thing feel free to bid it up a bit in the thread  ;-)up , dig deep and be generous   :).

- You send me (or any other sellers) the cost + P&P - usually 3 for <2kg and 10-15 for over (remember I am on the IOW the big cheap-o couriers don't work down here) I pay for the P&P and send 100% of the sale price to the SDBC for the charity pot.

So come on and make some daft offers, or post your own gear up - it's in aid of a good cause! 8)

To save me faffing around with different parts for my IRS conversion. Not too worried about condition - it's a sandrail.
