Re: Any Road legal freestyle buggies for sale ?

Difficult to say you don't want the oil to not get up to operating temperature so may have the opposite effect.

The a series is fairly unique that it shares the oil for engine and gearbox.

Re: Melvin the Mev Mevster Discussion Thread

Hi Alan I must confess I did spend a while on the drive way with the very same diagram before I committed to drilling the holes to mount the mudguards. He brought out his big life size template, gave me the nod and put it away with no issues. Alistair raised a good point about getting the IVA tester...

Re: Melvin the Mev Mevster Discussion Thread

Hi Alan Thanks for keeping us posted. A bit of remedial work to keep you busy this weekend then and back on the phone on Monday to book a re-test :) Glad you got the transporter running, that was my biggest worry not getting there as it is non-refundable after 2 days before the test. So if you miss ...

Re: Melvin the Mev Mevster Discussion Thread

Hi Alan, can't wait to hear how you got on. I had the same weather when I took mine, I remember loading the transporter in the dark at 05:30 below zero. The weekend before my IVA I noticed the dash tell tale for the side lights came on with the dipped beam. I thought that it was such a minor detail ...

Re: Any Road legal freestyle buggies for sale ?

I would not recommend running no antifreeze as it has corrosion inhibitors, will stop the water freezing in the winter which may result in a cracked block or popping the core plugs out. I also wouldn't bother with the addition as this is just masking the problem, you just need to get to the route ca...

Re: Any Road legal freestyle buggies for sale ?

when you have a working temp gauge you can hold the top of the rad pipe from the thermostat housing and feel it get hot at 86 degrees, you know is good.

Re: Any Road legal freestyle buggies for sale ?

You can see it (left) and the pipe up to the rad cap on the (righ...
