New pickup owner

Post by CycleKart UK on Wed Apr 20, 2016 1:05 am

Hi Guys and Gals, just got myself a 2001 1.3 16v efi Hijet pickup yesterday, spent a couple of hours tonight stripping the cab to clean things, really pleased so far, ( or as pleased as you can be) fixed a few issues , power washed the carpet and just waiting to collect a screen and wiper motor on Saturday before everything can go back together. I've used the search facility and all the info was there so far, but i'm bound to be back with some questions before long, i need an engine inspection cover if anyone has one lurking about, looks like the pickup and van are different shapes?  

cheers

Mark

I guess you are after the one on the flat bed, that's like a rounded off rectangle with corrugations.

Hi Andy, TBH I've been lurking for a while , keeping an eye out for a pick-up and what to look for etc. so i've kinda got the measure of the nature of this forum, i think, i'm thick skinned and have been known to be slightly sarcastic myself....hopefully i'll fit in.

Funnily enough Highly - Jetted has got a Cycle Kart too. A Hi-Jet Motor Cycle Go-Kart. We are all waiting with bated breath to see just how quick it is.

The plan for my Hi-Jet is CycleKart related, but not in the engine department, i'll keep you in suspense on that. As an aside i build kitcars with bike engines in..(as well as CycleKarts)Highly-Jetted might be in for a scary ride..its the stopping i'd be worried about..

Stopping is never so much a problem as going.

There is always something concrete not so far away.

I was also thinking about fitting something heavy to the back to add traction.

Then I could push it off the back as use it as an anchor.

Cracking engines , they use them in the legend race cars, 125 bhp,,,so "only" double the power of a 1.3 16v...should be interesting, it'll accelerate like a scolded cat , assuming you are using the standard 4.44:1 diff. I think you'll need a regular supply of tyres because it'll be so much fun lighting it up at every junction. Sequential gearbox and high revs is addictive. How long before its on the road?

Hey there fellow pick-up owner!
Just wondering if woody found you a cover. If not and you still need one , then I have one left. I've made myself a woodbed, so got the whole back side laying aroud as scrap metal. Don't know what it will cost to ship, but i don't need any money for it besides the shipping costs. Wink So just let me know if you still need one.

I got a lift to the garage last week and and had a brief look for a cover. I know I have a couple somewhere, but couldn't lay my hand on them in the brief time I was there.

So please go ahead and send your cover. Especially as you don't want anything for it. I am sure our friend will be delighted.

I have an appointment with the Doctor this evening and should hopefully be passed fit to drive again. I really hope so. It's awful being stuck at home with 5 vehicles on the drives and not being allowed to drive.
