Beach Buggy Engine and Exhaust Help / Re: Carb Setting Up

with an airflow meter to balance the flow you can get them running evenly and use the mixture screw position as a tell tale on jetting. were the carbs off a vw or are the new.

have a read on weber pages about the basic settings and fine tuning of them.

The cv joint assy will probably be a generic off the shelf unit to keep costs down best look for a name and any serial numbers on it.
if you can get that done and the hub/ tube all assembled it may be possible to weld the splined section back on while assembled providing you chamfer the mating edge first.

I guess the part in your hand is the splined tube that should be part of the rotor hub is it from inside or attached on the side. what metal is it and cast or billet machined.

VW moved gear lever and handbrake positions on the tunnel over the years so you may need to shorten the shaft.

They look like revolution wheels possibly in jag/ chevy 5 stud at a guess see what the rest think.

Welcome to the mad house, fully in agreement on cold garages in winter.
Nice buggy and you are not alone up that way as a buggy owner.

It may stop folks asking what it is and what it is based on that bit stull belongs to Dave as I have yet to pay him ;D
1200 inlet manifold seals are back order and am not paying £48 for and engine kit to get some.
raining here now so awaiting wiper blades to arrive for a decent drive out
should be for sale soon.

somewhere between 1968 and 72, a photo of the serial number would be useful.  you could find the final drive by putting it in 4th and turning the input shaft and counting the brake drum revolutions remembering 4th is not 1 to 1 drive but 1 to 0.91 for the equation.

All together and been driven on the drive, needs a gasket manifold to head on the left as there is a slight leak. Was running on 3 with a u/s plug compressions all 105 to 115. Just needs wiper blades but it is insured so will tax it and have a play.

As David says I fitted split boots the other day with no motor in and had to use jack the under the brake drum on the side to get clearance to slide the boot between the shaft and horn.

Newbie Welcome Area / Re: New to buggies! Any advice appreciated

hi buggies can be adjusted to suit the driver You will probably need a 10” or 11” steering wheel and thinnish seats to gain room.

buggying on a tight budget nothing wrong with that and you get the satisfaction of making it work from mismatched parts. ;-)up

Snoopy I saw this crime report earlier and thought of you - wouldn't want Mrs Snoopy to have her borders riffled through:

Theft – Main Street, Evesham

Between Tuesday 12th May 19:00hrs Wednesday 13th May 09:05hrs
2 large Buxus spiral trees, value of £175 each and 2 Whichford Pottery Cotswold terracotta planters £225 each, have been stolen from outside the front door of a property of a property.

If you have any further information, CCTV in the area or are offered such items for sale please call 101

PS. Would Vicky be interested in a couple of nice ceramic pots and 2 large trees to go in such ?!

Would the said two large trees available be Buxus spirals if so left or right hand thread spiral as one of each would look better outside the front door than 2 lefts or 2 rights. Cannot believe folks leave £800 worth of carry able item on the drive Mrs Snoopys national trust ones at £12 each are a big enough risk these days.
