Re: Cargo door check strap. Release pin and bracket

I've a short one fitted to a high hinge bus, so planning on replacing it.

Actually I've got two. One with the webbing very aged, the other with the webbing looking newer.

Re: Thermostat bracket + rod

If you can measure the length of the rod, I should be able to tell.

It is normal for the red light to come on at idle revs that is why alternators were invented!!

Re: FFS

Yep, as Dougie said. That's been sculptured in filler rather than doing it properly.

It'll need a load of work to sort that out, and as rust is in the seam it'll bleed like that.

Re: 4 inch narrowed link pin beam

Yes, well its a 3.75" CB Performance beam but could be made into a 4" beam if you needed it narrowed further.

Leaves match the beam, along with track rods.

£300

I know of a pair of narrowed early trailing arms too.

What about if a turbo is fitted in the engine bay? Do you warn people about that? Not a dig I have one of your systems myself
Revitalised an old thread. But yes, turbo in the engine bay is a daft idea IMHO.

Re: Gearbox change

No, you can't use a Bay nose cone on a Bug gearbox.

You also need to replace the CV joints. Also shorten the driveshafts as they're probably too long.
