Did not notice they were alloys. Not the greatest fan of them on a daily car as wheels attract the dogs and that leads to corrosion on the bead joint and slow punctures with alloy wheels. The steel seems more resistant. So I will duck collecting alloys I think, thanks. Someone else might nibble. I did wonder if the Pug 405 used the same wheel but I have a sneaking suspicion they might be 1/2J wider as the Pug is heavier. There are 5 Pugs in Junky Haynes at the moment (no BX, so don't get excited at the back) and I know Rodney pretty well so normally get a reasonable deal. I was going to go over and take some common parts as I think the Pug 405 are finally mostly falling out of service. Good strong car, but without the BX bounce. Most of the engines have been played with and lost parts but there might be something of use on the rebuild if you get stuck.Jaba wrote:Thread Bear wrote:Hi 'tis I
When you scrap the car are you taking wheels off it? /quote]
I will check out the interior lights to see if they are serviceable and that I have one in stock for myself.
I am keeping the wheels and have put spare scrap ones on the car ( these might be better than yours though, two are alloys). The originals are alloys with good tyres on to use as my other tyres in use wear out. After that they will be available.
Rob Viner is going to help me do cambelt and braces on his ramp. Good independent mechanic in Thrupp, Faringdon version, you might have come across him as he used to be a BX man. Good chance to check out other issues. We'll see how we go on rim looking. Hope to see you at Wickstead anyway.
