I can't help with the reverse but I would like to compliment you on the buggy so far. Looks great and some of the
ideas you've come up with are pretty neat. Should be a lot of fun to drive around town when your done ! AL

Stefan looks great. Flip your bearings on the rear A-arms so that the collars are facing to the inside.

Na, shocks are correct.
Although I would be seriously looking into your choice of tie rod ends.
Don't like the look of the offset ball joint attached to the rod end on the rack.
That type of studded rod end is prone to popping the ball out.
Those racks are designed to use a Clevis joint around the rod end.

tony the ball joints are not the right i know but i must change the double a-arm mounts because the steering doesn t work well :evil: ! i ve mounted the left quad a-arm on the right side and the right a-arms on the left side ( thats the wrong way) so i think i must fit the arms like the quad arms with the right angles !!!
so i hope it works ???

Hi piggery,

Coming along nicely, I presume that motor is the same one I'm using a GPZ-500 or ER5, is so I have a wiring Diagrams for that motor and a simplified version I did as a well if your interested.

Also check that the two top outlet tubes are not corroded through, if so replace them, I replaced mine by turning up Stainless steel tube to the same size and fitted new O rings along with some Silicon sealant, much cheaper than buying the bloody things.

Also pressure check the engine cooling system for water pump leaks especially if it has been standing dry for a long period of time. The water pumps have a nasty habit of the ceramic seal face cracking leaking coolant at the seal on this engine.

The water pump seal and Oil seal aren't that expensive to replace as long as the housing isn't corroded through, then it's costly.

P.s also check that the drive shaft hasn't rusted to bad at the oil seal end. if so rather than GOD forbid replacing it, don't push the Oil seal into the housing all the way so it has a new surface to run against.

Cheers
Hoover
