Who has my undercarriage tool?

Hi Guys,
I have loaned my undercarriage bungee tool to someone, but can't remember who......old age probably. (no, that is not his name!)
Can who ever has it return it to me please?

No, I don't have Barrys moulds, but made my own for the longer crank on the Force 1 hub setup I had.....can't remember who has them now.

Re: Nipper trolley

Hey John!
Just come across this post! Sorry!
Nipper has gone, very sad, but replaced it with an RV4.......very nice, and 2 seats!
Still got the last ever Nipper kit unbuilt, just in case the RV has to go.
Hope all is well with you.

Re: LeBurg ignition installation

As I recall the O ring dimensions are the same as the VW genuine flywheel O ring. I have stock of these hubs for sale to suit the CBR alternator if you wish to buy one. FYI: https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=vw+type+1+flywheel+o+ring&rlz=1C1CAFB_enGB674GB675&espv=2&biw=1600&bih=810&a...

Re: LeBurg ignition installation

Hi Jim, I found the clearance to be very close on G-ONCS, but managed to get what I needed by adjusting the clearance on the Leburg assembly, reduce the length of the pillars, the back of the alternator rotor was then very tight to the rearmost plate. Do away with the nylok nuts supporting the stato...
