Beach Buggy Engine and Exhaust Help / Rebushing Weber 34ict's?
« on: July 29, 2020, 07:57:25 AM »
Has anyone ever rebushed Weber 34icts themselves, or rather fitted bushes as the throttle spindles just turn in the casting as standard, no bushes fitted? I'm sure I could drill or ream the body out ok but can anyone recommend a bush that would suit? I've not stripped them, it'll be a job for Winter, but the shaft o.d. looks to be iro 8mm.

Would anyone have a set of twin port manifold clips kicking around? I sent for some on eBay but just got sent 4 X Jubilee clips, too thick and clunky! They'd work, just, but I'd prefer originals. Thanks.

Beach Buggy Electrical Help / Non buggy towbar wiring, Peugeot 208?
« on: November 02, 2019, 02:22:18 PM »
Just fitted a towbar to the daily, a Peugeot 208 15 reg. I need to wire it for a basic tip-run trailer so 7 pin plug, no reverse or fog lights etc.

Looking at the rear light wiring one the boot there are stickers in place implying that you can't simply Scotchlock onto them like back in the day. I'm thinking it'll need one of those little by pass relay things wiring in? Is it that simple or am I setting myself up for failure? TIA.

Beach Buggy Electrical Help / Elec help wanted for 'real' car!
« on: September 03, 2019, 11:22:24 AM »
Help! 2007 Chevrolet (ie Daewoo) Lacetti, 1.6 petrol 5 door.

No rear fog lights working. Bulbs, holders, earths etc all okay. Fuse okay. Dash warning light coming on (goes out when fuse is pulled), I can't find a relay anywhere.

Going for MOT this afternoon, HELP!

VW Parts For Sale / Lowered Beam, Ball Joint.
« on: August 14, 2019, 07:50:39 PM »
Stock length lowered beam, ball joint, rock solid, no rust, 300 new so how does 100 sound? Still LHD so would just need the lock stop and damper mount swapping from your old beam for RHD use (easy to make if you haven't got the old bits).

Too big to ship unless you've got any ideas so collection from Anglesey, North Wales.

Parts Wanted / Wanted: Front End grub screws and Sway a Way bits.
« on: July 13, 2019, 08:00:59 PM »
Help! I've rummaged thru all of my greasy buckets of crap but I'm still short of:

4x trailing arm M14 grub screws c/w nuts if possible.

1x alloy block from a Sway a Way adjuster. Gub screws (1/2" unf) would be great too if possible.

Will happily pay in cash, beer, charity donation or whatever.
