Beach Buggy Engine and Exhaust Help / Clutch cable
« on: August 12, 2015, 05:32:40 PM »
Ok, you have to bear in mind that I've never owned or driven a VW
before, thanks for your indulgence.
After a visit from Allan, Carl and Dave on Saturday, when they got the
engine running right, I went for a blast, 500 yds later, no clutch.
The cable is still connected but it's got no tension, floppy pedal.
Any input welcomed,
thanks gang.

Beach Buggy Rolling Chassis Help / Steering column "play"
« on: March 04, 2014, 09:25:54 PM »
Checking the old girl over ready for mot at the weekend I found
movement in the steering column, the wheel and the centre move
about 1/4 inch all round, seems very sloppy, the outer part is solid.
One of you VeeDub gurus (and I know you are many) point me in the right
direction please. :-\

I was going to have a drive in the buggy tonight so I started it up in the garage
just to make sure it would, it did, no problem :)  Switched off while I moved the
wife's car, came back and squeezed meself in, oh it started but with a helluva rattle >:(
Thought at first it was the pulley hitting the guard but that would be to easy, it seems to
be from the left side, any ideas?
