Thread back from the dead? Possibly....
Since last year I have become a dad and got married, and moved back home to Dorset, and obviously have no time to work on the Bug which has been sat in my garage for a year. To my shame I have been driving a 1995 Fiat Punto as my daily for the last year. But it only cost me £200.
Trying to get an MOT on the Bug at the moment though. Recently changed over the spindle and got a new disc for the front, as I was having endless problems with the wheel coming off every so often... I think the disc must have been knackered from the first time it happened.
Got a new fuel pump from Heritage, one of the new EU made ones, seems ok, although it's a bit daft having the outlet pipe point directly at the dizzy cap. I recon'd the original one last year with a rebuild kit but the diaphragm must have gone in the meantime of not being used, cos the oil was full of fuel again.
Here's a picture.
Once MOT'd, I will use my lunch breaks to start on some wiring upgrades, I already bought the parts for the headlight relay wiring upgrade. Also got new HT leads, changed the genny back over to the original one (could never get my other one to line up properly, it was causing fan belts to rub and spray fluff all over my engine bay)
One day I will redo this in Gulf colours also. Likely in another 4 years.
