Arran if you're using a hex bar linkage, it could be that.  Mine did the same until I swapped to the CSP bell crank system. It's about £100 but the difference is enormous. Much easier to set up and to balance and above all it's super smooth.

Its defo in the pedals. I can flap the accelerator like a tissue in the wind with a finger and nothing moves on the linkage at carbs.
Yes but that could be happening when the linkage is sticking open or maybe the cable is getting snagged somewhere.

We thought that may raise doubts but this year my buggy didn't leave the field once from when I got to IBW till I left and I had more laughs with like minded mates than I have for a very long time.

That was with the wife so next year I may just let my hair down.
Must admit I only went to the local shop in mine but I love the cruise there and back. You know I agree with you and also had more laughs this trip than I've had in years. Best holiday in a long time.
I'm in two minds. If we could find a secure stopover with safe parking, I'd be happy to go Weds to Weds if ness.

So doing the trip in buggies is presumably off then? Not sure I want to go to a buggy event without my buggy.

Fantastic write up Dave. Certainly was a trip to remember. Despite all the not-so-good bits it was a holiday I'll always remember for the good bits too. Chad's party tent meant we didn't even notice the rain and I for one haven't laughed so much in years.
I wish Scott a speedy recovery and sincerely hope it's a full one.
IBW 2020? Wouldn't miss it for anything.

Beach Buggy General Help / Waterproof cover
« on: June 21, 2019, 05:30:54 PM »
As some will know after IBW, I need a waterproof cover for the buggy that fits. Not worried about it being breathable as it'll only be used at night on campsites - just waterproof. Don't want a cheapie as I've been there and done that. Recommendations please folks?

Parts Wanted / 28mm venturis for twin IDF40s
« on: June 18, 2019, 12:38:18 PM »
Does anyone have a set of 28mm venturis for twin IDF40s please? Either for sale or swap for my 32mm set which are too big for my 1584cc motor.

Hi all, Allan and I might not be going to IBW  :'( Allan has had a minor heart attack, he is ok but stuck in hospital. They are doing an angiogram tomorrow and possibly fitting a stent. Hopefully, we know by the weekend if we will be able to make this or not but doesnít look good. No more Greggs photos from us in the future and Iíll be carrying carrot sticks in my tin rather than biscuits  ;D
Really sorry to hear that news. Best wishes to Allan for a full and speedy recovery.

Morrisons shuts at 2100 so we are aimimg to get there at about 2000 to top up fuel and grab some snacks in store for the journey part 2.

just looked in the Harwich branch website Thursday closing is 10 pm shop and 10.30 pm for fuel, tuesday return they open at 6 am for fuel but cafe is 8 am.
The breakfast we got last time was good. Fourwentways wasn't it?

Brilliant. Thanks Dave. I'll be at Fourwentways as before  ;-)up

Is there a list of meeting points and times in the UK yet for the journey to Harwich? I may have missed it. Hopefully I'll get the buggy back tomorrow with a clean bill of health.

What's all this talk of buying wigs and hippy clothes?  ;D
