Took FGU out for its first spin in 8 years today. A quick trip around the green and down to the garden centre. Bloody thing was flying along. I had a grin like the cheshire cat. The wiper got done today along with better Earths on the rear lights.
A bet that was great fun, why have you waited so long? Which carb was you using. One more request, I have to sign in every time I come on to the forum and its been a bit of a faff, for some reason its not remembering my password even though I have ticked the remember me box. Any help in this matter will be helpful.

Generally remembering passwords and usernames is controlled by the security section of preferences (= "options", "settings", etc according to which browser you have) in your browser. Nothing to do with the website as such. The browser uses the website's cookies to match a password with the website address. This for example is the relevant section (without the formatting and tick boxes) from Firefox (Tools/Options/Privacy & Security):
Cookies and Site Data Your stored cookies, site data, and cache are currently using 1.0 GB of disk space. Learn more Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed Clear Data… Manage Data… Manage Permissions… Logins and Passwords Ask to save logins and passwords for web sites Autofill logins and passwords Suggest and generate strong passwords Exceptions… Saved Logins… Show alerts about passwords for breached web sites Learn more Use a master password Change Master Password…
While you can auto-save both username and password, I would strongly suggest that you NEVER save passwords, on this site or any other. For most sites in my experience, the "Remember me?" option generally by default only remembers the username, for obvious reasons of security.
If you have a question your better of starting a topic in the main forum.

mybug: Anyone know the whereabouts of PTO 365M? It was mine back in the early 80s and some pix have surfaced here (apparently from ebay around 5 years ago) so is it still around?

karl: Andrea, just seen your post. if you're still looking try putting it in the for sale wants thread.

mybug: Searched and spooled through every image/video/old ad I can find on the internet, I'm thinking that PTO 365M is not around any more. May be resting in a shed, but given the small and tight-knit Bug community, I'd have thought that someone would know it.

heartnut: Quick question: If I fit a Lucas 15/16/18 alternator, is it true that it will heed fibreglass work to fit it as the body is bigger than the original generator?

rolydog2001: I have fitted a Dynamator to get around this, looks original and gives the same output.
