Had a customer drop some headers off to be coated today. He is from Extreme Clutches, we spoke last week on the phone. Today after dropping off headers he took my spare flywheel and clutch assembly. Hopefully I will have a double diaphragm clutch with a solid ceramic clutch disc coming soon.
looks like some sort of small robot looking at me lol
Well this is a different take on on a handivan
Nice to see the work you have done, it’s fun in the stock engine bay.
Should look at the golf cart rims and tyres on ebay. 10" x 7" with a 205/50 series tyre, or 12" x 8" with a 235/45 on them.
I used 10" on my first one, had more traction around corners than you could handle, ended up in the passenger side a few times the 12"'s would be be better. And the loading on them is plenty for the handivan. 660 pounds load per tyre off memory
BTW, you wouldn’t have a spare windscreen around?? I’m having a hell of a time getting one for my handivan, about to give up and get some lexan
I will be upgrading to 15 inch wheels to fit Compact Motorsport brake upgrade when money permits. I have been working on a 4x100 hub upgrade from a Cuore hub and HiJet strut combo
I’m really interested in how these go. I’m looking at a L251 for my next Dai and hoping to do this upgrade too.
Ahh, yes. 195/45/15"s are available and are 550mm diameter, close to a stock 12".
Running them on the front on mine to get as much clearance as possible
Most likely using Copen mags with 165/40r15
That’s cool, even smaller diameter again
So ever driven a car with a brass plate clutch before ?
Turns the clutch into a switch, on or off with very little in-between
Not yet, the car won’t be a daily.
Just reading through this thread I feel like I’ve learnt a huge amount. Keep us updated, not only is this awesome it’s teaching me a lot haha. Thanks for posting this!
Thanks, I felt like this is the collective ramblings of a old man and his never ending project
Well progress is very slow, and as always it come down to money and the issue of not having any for cars right now.
Yes this is another carby to blower inlet, the aim is to not chop the bonnet.
Hopefully some more cash flows my way and this will continue once again.
good idea not to chop the bonnet. not like they make them anymore
Tonight I spent a tad over 30 minutes chopping thick wall stainless steel steam pipe. That was fun.
Tomorrow I will shape the join I have to make, unfortunately it won’t be pretty but it will function.
