Re: Seat Belt Buckles

My Mk1 SDL had the seat belt binnacle, I can’t remember buckle type though. The buckle was on a static strap about 30cm long, which then attached to the main retractable seat belt. Most of the plastic binnacle surrounds get broken as it possible to jam the the seat belt buckle between the surround a...

Re: Flat Spot

Hi Renzo, I have checked your teeth count and recalculated the gear ratios with the aid of a spreadsheet. Initially I got the same answers as David Painter. These are clearly wrong. However, I think that you have written down the teeth count for the second and third gear Mainshaft and layshaft the w...

Re: 1.8HL auto - update

The PO has by-passed the fuse, potentially and hopefully there is an in-line fuse protecting the circuit. I think the big power draw there is the heated rear screen, this really does need a fuse.

Re: Flat Spot

Good call Gil, but thankfully not in this case. Renzo has called me this morning and said that his mechanic has pulled the speedo drive wheel, it a black one with 23 teeth - so mystery solved.

Re: Flat Spot

The 3.63:1 diff ratio requires the 20 tooth orange or brown speedo drive to give an accurate reading.

Re: Flat Spot

Thanks guys.

For everyone’s info the 1500 diesel uses the 1.8 gearbox ratios and a 4.11:1 differential. Renzo’s car has a 3.63:1 differential now.

Re: Marina Diesel at AR Online

There was a Beetle kit based on a Porsche 718 RSK Spyder from the late 50s/early 60s.

This is the 1970s kit car.

Re: Flat Spot

One for the FMM Brains Trust - I have some ideas, but need to share, to see what others think could be the problem. Lorenzo has a genuine green TC that he bought off eBay UK and shipped to Malta. He also has what was originally a Maltese built genuine Diesel car that he has had totally rebuilt and p...

Re: Marina Diesel at AR Online

I enjoyed the article, but it’s not entirely true that the Marina the Marina was never offered with a diesel in the UK. The Pickup was offered with the diesel and at least one batch was made for the RAF as airfield cars, one of which still exists.
