Beach Buggy Rolling Chassis Help / Sloppy pedals

Hi folks.

After fitting new carbs my accelerator pedal is super sloppy. No life in it at all.

VW Parts For Sale / Gauge Wizard. Match any gauge to any sender.
« on: March 11, 2018, 06:46:21 PM »
1x Spiyda Gauge Wizard.

Matches gauges to senders, good for buggies with odd shaped fuel tank or poorly reading gauges. Has the ability to switch on low fuel lights, operate relays for fans or opening other fuel tanks, lpg swaps etc.

Selling as my fuel sender is positioned so badly (or its broken, but I dont want to take half my car apart to get to it) can't make use of this marvellous equipment.

Gauge wizard and destruction's included.

more info and also great set up videos on spiyda.com/Link/WIZARD.html

30 posted? willing to take a hit on this one as its such a great and easy to use bit of kit, just a shame it wasn't able to sort my problem.


Beach Buggy Electrical Help / Sealing electrical connectors.
« on: December 03, 2017, 06:07:21 PM »
Hi guys.

I've had a bit of an issue with my daily drivers electrical system and I thought it might be relevant to buggies as we are very exposed weather wise.

My mondeo's rear ABS sensors kept tripping a fault and it turns out the connector (super seal type jobbie) wasn't super sealing so well. I applied some WD40 to clean it out. reconnected and still tripped the ABS sensor after a battery disconnect and re-set and a good 200 miles. So... I re-did the cleaning and also put in some of that dielectric grease stuff. Again reset ecu and its working great. 1000 miles of salty roads later nothing...

So, what I'm after is.. Does adding dielectric grease into electrical connectors like the super seal, or block type connectors HELP prevent corrosion? therefore maintaining a good, solid connection.
I have seen it being used around the ceramic parts of spark plugs so the boot keeps more water out, but also helps stop arcing.

What are the thoughts of the buggy people? I wanted to ask here as with most car forums people aren't the nicest when it comes to controversial topics. 

If so, is it worth while coating the connectors with the stuff under the dash just to keep everything nice and reliable.
