Beach Buggy General Help / Pulley identity markings
« on: September 11, 2019, 03:27:14 PM »

Just been cleaning my original crankshaft pulley ready for a coat of paint. Out of interest does the D just by the VW mark represent anything other than its German  :-\


Beach Buggy General Help / Does anyone have a pic of a pulley cover tin
« on: August 23, 2019, 09:23:16 PM »

Hi all,

Just finished polishing my Beezledub exhaust. I quite enjoy but find I get quite a bit of oil mist finding its way into the centre of the exhaust. Think this is mainly because the Scat aluminium pulley I have fitted has a pretty poor excuse for a worm thread ( the bit that encourages oil back into the block). Been wondering if a pulley cover (part of the cooling tin system) would help stop oil finding its way onto the exhaust.
Does any one have any pictures.
Open to suggestions, I suppose I could chase the thread on the pulley collar a bit more.
Hope this makes sense.
Thanks Paul

Beach Buggy General Help / Wrapping
« on: April 04, 2019, 07:42:34 PM »

Anyone done this, any tips. Need  provide some protection to the driver/passenger entry points.
Got some good quality wrap (3M). I know to be clean as possible, wipe with acetone. Believe best if temperature is above 16*C and to address any marks in the paint work before starting.
Anything appreciated.

Beach Buggy General Help / Windscreen washer
« on: March 26, 2019, 10:16:53 PM »

Hi all,
Query rather than a question. Just completed upgrading the fuse box. Having checked all was working okay discovered the washer pump was a bit iffy.
At first thought id cocked up the wiring. Checked the obvious only to discover the washer pump was ceasing.
The pump is only 12 months old, itís a Lucas WB100, used in Minis etc. Has anyone else discovered their wiper pumps packing in relatively
quickly, probably through lack of use.
Very rarely use mine, or have I fried it because Iíve reversed the wiring.

Does anyone know the correct windscreen trim filler to use on a GP2 screen. Fancy trying some chrome type insert instead of the current black. Thereís loads to choose  from, guess they are much the same profile but not sure :-\
