Torque master tool is the best money you'll ever spend, you can remove and refit hubs and flywheels with a 3/8 ratchet.

Well done for getting it undone

If you had said your location and you were close to my area you could have borrowed my one..

Finally managed to get the roll bar back from the metal platers as I wanted the chrome removed as it was badly rusted and I felt like having a change.

Then swapped the engine over just for this year hopefully. (From 1835 to 1641, gonna refresh the 1835)



Had to remove the fitted fuel pump as I had an electric pump on the buggy, found pressure issues as the 1641 has a single carb but the 1835 has duel carbs and I needed to reduce the fuel pressure so had to fit a pressure gauge.

Next we had a go at the wheels as things have been parked up and off the road for over a year now so they needed a bit of a tickle.

Thanks Pete.

regularly check the various web sites ( mainly http://www.manxmaniac.co.uk/index.php) and picture stores to not only checkout the buggys from the past but also to remind me about the people that was out there enjoying the Smiles per mile.  ;-)up

Hi Buddy,

Sorry but I cant comment on the regulator but I saw that you've said there is a "glass in line filter", from past experience and comments from other users, if its one of those washable motorcycle/kit car filters be careful as they leak badly or break all of a sudden.
Your choice but just passing on some chat and info.

Cheers H

Right then,

Tried your suggestion "South west metal finishing" they made the point that they only do trade work no retail options.

But................

The local guys all pointed me to "https://dougtaylor.co.uk/ " So I sent them an e-mail and they responded really well, as it stands at the moment for them to remove the chrome coating will be estimated 50 + vat and the turn around will be approx 2 weeks but may be quicker depending on their work load. so looking forward to sort things out at the start of March. 
Check out their web site, I was impressed. ;-)up

Cheers H
