The Chairman’s Page Dennis

Here we are with the Autumn edition. This must mean that summer is almost over. I hope you have all been out and about in your Beaufords enjoying what little bit of summer we had. Please let us know where you've been and what you've seen. On 26th July we joined several other club members at the Duxford show. As well as the aircraft in the hangars and outside to look at, there were flying displays by WW2 planes and plenty of classic cars to look at.

It was a beautiful, hot sunny day and a good time was had by all. It was nice to see some different members attending with their cars who we haven't seen at Stoneleigh: you would be very welcome if you can make it. The organisers of the show were very impressed with the display of Beaufords and have invited the club to attend again next year. I can thoroughly recommend it and hope to see you there next year. Watch the magazine for next years date or check the Imperial War Museum web site. On a personal note, as some of you know we moved house in March. This has meant that we have been busy updating the kitchen and bathroom and taking advantage of the nice weather to reorganise the garden. Unfortunately we have not had as much time as usual to enjoy our Beauford, and didn't make it to Powderham this year, but when we have taken it for a short holiday or day out, I've been pleased that it still runs well and seems to enjoy its outings. Long may that continue. 5


OVENDEN’S OFFERING   Liz Goodness, it does not seem five minutes since the last magazine came out and yet here we are again. I am writing this just two days before we are due to go off on holiday and as an extra problem have just had some new acrylic nails which look very nice but are not that easy to type with, so please excuse any typos or unusual words which may appear as Microsoft (as a lot of you probably already know) has a habit of thinking it knows what you want to type which is not always correct. Anyway, as I was saying, we are off on a little jaunt in a couple of days’ time. I have a cousin who lives in a castle in Aberdeen and we are going up to visit him and his wife for a few days. It’s a bit of a family reunion as four of my cousins are also going. Quite amazing what you can organise when you’ve had a few bevvies (our last get together in Essex in March)! Not only that but we have agreed to go up in the Beauford, so rather than do it in one go we will stay overnight in Carlisle. Just hope when we get there they do not put us in the basement room as I believe it is still fully equipped. You may remember that last year I mentioned about the Beauford overheating and how we put a heat shield in. Well it does seem to have helped, but when we went down to Duxford, on a very hot Friday afternoon, the car did start to play up when we got caught in traffic so Tony has now put in an Oil Cooler, so hopefully this will finally do the trick, although I am not expecting very hot weather in Aberdeen in September, but you never know. Over the last few weeks I have had a couple of phone calls from Beauford owners who have never joined the Club, but expect the same level of help as those who regularly pay their subs to stay as members. When I asked one why he did not join I was amazed at how quickly he changed the subject, and it was at this point that I decided that perhaps I would not be quite as helpful as I usually am. After all we have a loyal membership and I think that they should get preferential treatment. This brings me to be subject of regalia etc as I have now worked out prices for members and non-members as agreed at the AGM. I had an email the other day from a member who wanted to convert his bonnet sides to those with the dummy exhaust pipes. It’s not something I have thought much about but on talking to Tony about it and then emailing back it’s quite a complicated and possibly expensive thing to do. Involved in this would be the purchase from Beaufords of the side pipe kits, plus also new bonnet sides and then the drilling of the holes in the front wings which if you don’t get right first time could be a bit disastrous. I’ve not heard back from the people concerned but I wonder whether they decided to go ahead, and if so, how much did it cost and how easy was it to do.

Subscriptions Unfortunately, I still have 15 members who have not renewed this year, despite several emails so they will not be getting a copy of this magazine. Paul tells me that the amount of “hits” that the magazine gets on the web site is quite high and I wonder if people are not renewing as they can read the current edition on line. With this mind we have decided not to put it on the web site until it is at least a month out of date. One of our members has renewed and told me that he has set up a standing order with his bank to pay his £10 subscription every year on the 1st March. I think that this is a

and return to me. This could possibly make my life a lot easier and save all those hours I spend sending out reminders.

Regalia/Spares Headlamp rims I now have a fresh supply of headlamp rims. Unfortunately, the cost has gone up, both for the manufacturing of the basic rims and for the industrial chroming.

Flying Lady bonnet mascots I am hoping that I may be able to get a few flying lady bonnet mascots manufactured shortly. Because I only want a few, and as a big favour to me, the company I use has agreed to do me a few, but on the condition that I may have to wait a little while until they are less busy. I do have orders from two members but will let you all know when I get the other ones in.

New Tax Disc Rules I have just discovered that with effect from 1st October this year, the DVLA will cease to issue tax discs as it will all be on line and the police can quickly check if your car is taxed or not. It is a bit like the end of an era really, and I still have some Beauford tax disc holders, so if anyone wants one please let me know (free). Apparently, after 1st October if you are selling your car you can no longer advertise it as being taxed for a year or whatever, as car tax will no longer be transferrable – any buyer will be responsible for taxing any car he purchases himself. Just wondered what all those guys down at the DVLA will now be doing.

Shows - 2014 Historic Vehicle Gathering, Powderham Castle, Exeter 12th/13th July We actually managed to get to Powderham this year and I’m glad we did. Lots of cars from over the years and loads of car related stands and autojumble plus rows and rows of other stalls selling lots and lots of different stuff. The only thing which disappointed me was the fact that I did not find the stall selling real Cornish pasties – kept seeing people with them but never actually found them. One thing I did notice though was that the loos were exceptionally clean which is most unusual when you are having to use porta loos. Will definitely go next year.

Imperial War Museum, Duxford, 28th July 2014. What a wonderful day this was. We had 8 or 9 Beaufords on show which were parked just by the side of the runway in front of a row of aircrafts. During the afternoon there was a spectacular display of spitfires which seemed to go on for ages and created a wonderful atmosphere. Apart from one or two food stalls there was nothing really there to commercialise the show as such but we all had a great time. I must also offer my 8

thanks to Ian and Val who did not bring flasks of hot water but actually brought a stove

and kettle and a real teapot so we had mugs of proper tea (very rarely get this at home). A great idea and one which we will possibly take up at future shows. We had 9

our temporary gazebo for shelter from the sun and our banner there which let people know where we were. The organisers of the show have since contacted me and praised our display of cars which they thought was quite impressive.

Peterborough Classic and Vintage Show, 13th and 14th September. As I write this we have yet to go to this show. Currently we have four cars attending. I am not sure when the magazine will go out but if you get it in time and would like to go then please let me know. The following is purported to be an exchange of correspondence between a customer and the Irish Railway Gentlemen, I have been riding your trains daily for the last two years, and the service on your line seems to be getting worse every day. I am tired of standing in the aisle all the time on a  14-mile trip. I think the transportation system is worse than that enjoyed by people 2,000 years ago. Yours truly, Patrick Finnegan Dear  Mr. Finnegan, We received your letter with reference to the shortcomings of our service and believe you  are somewhat confused in your history. The only mode of transportation 2,000 years ago was by foot. Sincerely,

Irish Railway Company Gentlemen, I am in receipt of your letter, and indeed I think you are the ones who are confused in your history. If you will refer to the Bible and the Book of David, 9th Chapter, you will find that Balaam rode to town on his ass. That... Gentlemen, is something I have not been able to do on your train in the last two years! Yours feckin' truly, Patrick Finnegan. 10

Screen Seal Insertion Tool by

Hamish Freeman A question was raised recently about a tool to fit the rubber seal into the gap in the rubber windscreen surround. Here are pictures of a tool that I made for this purpose from springy wire, a piece of tube and an old screwdriver handle. The photos below show 10mm squares. Despite the angle, the tool is symmetrical and follows the co nto u r o f t he rubber when set at an angle of 45째. This allows the lips of the screen surround to be pushed apart and the seal fed in thro ug h the tool making the fi t m e nt o f t h e seal possible in ~ 5 mins. Whilst the following may well be teaching the m aj o r it y of rea ders how to s u c k e g g s, fo r anyone not familiar with metal bending, find some springy wire that will retain a shape when suitably bent from your bits box. Make the sharp hairpin bend first then set the wire in a vice and bend the wire outwards then bend inwards around a suitable object such that the seal will fit in between the wire shape when held at 45 째 . S o m e exp e r im entatio n may be necessary. Move the w ire do w n and bend it out to form the parallel section that will go in the tube. Cut to length then invert to the level o f t h e fi r s t outward bend and clamp. Bend out the nose by about 45 째 . P ut t h e fi n i s h e d w i r e shap e into the tube and tighten the tube in the vice to clamp the wire. Insert the tube in the handle and it is ready to use. 11

Beauford Door Hinges by

Tony Ovenden We recently had a phone call from a member who was having problems with external door hinges on his Beauford. The doors were dropping when they were opened and he had been told that the hinges were probably worn and needed

replacement. However this is not always the case and so I sent him the following on how to check and sort out possible wear and tear without having to replace the actual door hinges.

Beauford self-aligning door hinges expained This is a hinge before modification They are manufactured in cast iron in various widths and are left or right handed The Beauford hinge is 51mm (2�) wide. The door side flap is cut to length then drilled with counter-sunk bolts welded in (optional) to attach to the door.

12


THE BEAUFORD CLUB MAGAZINE

The pillar side flap is to be cut short and the offcut welded back on at right-angles to provide the attachment to the pillar. Please excuse drawing quality!

The hinges are in two cast iron parts, connected by a brass ball which sits in cups machined into the top and bottom parts. A centre pin and spring passes through to complete the assembly. The pin is grooved to take a special locking washer which prevents the nut from loosening when it’s tab is bent up against one of the nut flats.

13


THE BEAUFORD CLUB MAGAZINE

To check for wear, lift the door and watch for sideways movement between the top and bottom parts of the hinge. Any movement will have to taken out by bending down the tab washer which locks the nut. This will allow you to tighten the nut against the spring until excess play is removed. If excess wear is found in the ball or spring, replacements can be purchased from http://www.vintagesupplies.co.uk ( check ball diameter before ordering – there are two available sizes 3/4" or 5/8” ) Some Beauford owners have found that the pin in these hinges is prone to rust. A suitable alternative is a 6mm diameter, 65mm overall length stainless steel bolt (61mm under countersink) with a self-locking nut (nyloc). It is advisable to use waterproof grease during assembly. Note that if you wish to get the hinges polished and chromed, do not chrome onto any bolt threads or inside the cup sections or the ball won’t fit the cups and nuts won’t fit the threads! – obvious, but easily overlooked.

HELP/ADVICE WANTED PLEASE In 1986 I purchased a Beauford kit, possibly either the 14th or 16th kit which Gordon at Beaufords produced. This was one of the original mini based kits. For one reason or another I have never started the kit but now feel that I would like to see it built whilst I am still around and wonder if anyone out there would be willing to build it for me. Either that or I would be willing to part exchange it for a ready built car, or even sell the kit and parts for a reasonable offer. The kit comprises: Full Beauford kit with heavy duty rear carrier for taking a tow bar 6 x 15” Jaguar wheels converted to fit Ford Cortina and white-walled tyres A fully functional mini (B reg numberplate) Cortina parts: engines, gearbox, sub frames, axles, all suspension parts Many extras, lights, mirrors horns and much more Wing mirrors, wooden steering wheel Paint – diamond white Even a number plate from cut up Cortina EGH 128X, which has been kept on SORN. If anyone would like to take on this project or has any other reasonable suggestions/ideas then please contact me. Kacie Carter on 0208 855 7651 (South London)

A Beauford with a Difference Michael Crozier Hi there everyone. I have just finished restoring and modifying a Beauford. delighted with the result that you can see below.

I have to say that I am

seconds. Actually, I have stretched quite a few Beaufords in my time to give more room inside. However, to date, they have always been 2 door models and I made them into 4 door Beaufords by adding mini doors to the rear. But, this one was to be different; a 4 door model to become a stretched 4 door.

15


THE BEAUFORD CLUB MAGAZINE

The idea was to cut the rear door in half and stretch from there. I would then fit a full size front door, modified to fit, complete with wind up windows. This would be a stretch size, giving easier access, and most importantly more inside room for those big dresses. The hoods on a Beauford are bit time consuming and fiddly so wanted a quick and

easy solution. I’m not really in to open air motoring as I always lose my cap! So I wanted a hard top up front and a convertible to the rear. I also thought that a bit

strength (pic 5). We fabricated a small section including a small window and welded it in place. We used the old rear doors, cutting them in half and fitting them to each side. We used angle iron and steel bar for the hinge panel and door shunt. We welded this to the steel inner sills. We also lengthened the chassis with same size and thickness plate, (pic 6).


THE BEAUFORD CLUB MAGAZINE

Next, we had to dress and grind all the welds flush.

Our next task was to purchase and modify a hard top. I purchased new front doors from David at Beauford cars which we modified and fitted to the build (pic 7). Actually, I searched all over for a hard top and finally got one via ebay. it was a two door top but it didn’t matter too much because we

time fiddling and fitting it to the inside of rear roll bar. We then welded the hinge to the frame. Next we made a a mock up type of hood and fitted it as a template

for new hood. We altered a pair of hood irons to fit (pic 9). Next, we fitted a new floor including a fabricated tunnel. Finally, the car was fully primed and finally ready for paint  (Pic 10).  Hey presto look at the fist picture. It isn’t too bad is it? (ed).

Colin’s Beauford Project The IVA Test I took the car for it's IVA test, it failed! The examiner said the car was well put together but a few things he couldn't pass. The failure points • Hinge nuts not 2.5mm radius • Hinge tops not 2.5mm radius • Battery terminals not insulated • Starter motor terminals not insulated • Relay no insulation on earth terminals! • Front o/s Brake hose rubbing on full right lock • Rear brakes efficiency 57% (MOT pass is 50%, IVA pass is 60% apparently) • Handbrake efficiency • Glove box knob • Roof sticks too sharp • Rear door window struts top not 2.5mm radius • Front badge bar bracing not 2.5mm radius • Door handles not 2.5mm radius and front opening not close enough to door • Bump stops on roof stays not 2.5mm radius • Fuel cap can remove the key when unlocked • Rear Seat belt anchorage not triangulated • Luggage rack • Storage space behind seats - apparently if there is space for luggage (this also applies to the luggage rack) it has to be calculated for four adult's at so much weight and it will take the weight loading over the maximum for the rear axle. Even though you patently can't put four passengers luggage in the car! One small roll bag tops. The back of the Beauford is very heavy, there is some metal in the chassis. What I have done to get it past the IVA test? • •

Hinge nuts not 2.5mm radius - the acorn nuts were not rounded enough so put on plastic caps Hinge tops not 2.5mm radius - used body sealer round them off. 22

IVA Re-test I had everything ready by the end of the week and booked a re-test, the earliest slot available was for 8th November! I took the car for the test, he checked the failure items, was happy I had actioned them and told me to wait in the office while he wrote the paperwork because it had passed! The next challenge is getting it licenced for the road. I had heard stories about the DVLA being difficult, but my experience was just the opposite. I found that you can't download all the forms you need from the web so the day after the IVA re-test I rang the DVLA and they said they would post them out to me. It was Friday, I figured it would take a few days so I drove to the Birmingham office. I may have been just lucky, but the first person I spoke to happened to be the guy who inspected the cars. He was really helpful, he gave me the forms I needed, advised me how to complete them and what to include. I returned the forms the following Monday, they were checked and I was gived a receipt. I received the letter advising of the inspection appointment on the Thursday after for the following week 22nd November. Then on the Saturday I received the forms from my phone call to the DVLA in Swansea, I'm glad I went down to Birmingham!

I took Twiggy down and put it in the allotted parking space and advised them I was there. They told me to wait with the car and someone would be out shortly. He came out, checked the VIN number, the engine, had a look round said it was a nice car and said he would send it out in a couple of days. All done! The reg number and tax disk came two days later. Twiggy has been reborn a POK!

Problems I've Come Across

Sensor corroded ABS - The donor car was fitted with ABS. All the sensors were corroded and would cost £160 a wheel to replace. On talking to the guys at Beauford, they advised me not transfer it to the kit. Apart from being expensive they said other clients had had problems with getting the ABS through IVA. It almost decided me to do the opposite because I love a challenge, but in the end I decided to benefit from someone else’s experience. A period car wouldn't have had it, so that's my excuse!

24


THE BEAUFORD CLUB MAGAZINE

Stub axle cleaned up with plate I would need a standard servo and master cylinder, so a quick search on Ebay and I soon had one on the way. In the mean time, I dare say the sensor hole on the hubs wouldn’t go down well with IVA, so I cut and made some plates to cover them. I secured them with the old sensor bolts, cut down, and some Hermatite instant gasket. When it was painted you’d never know it was any other, time would tell. The build manual is quite detailed as far as the Beauford parts, but really needs re-writing for the mechanicals. It was written for a Cortina donor car and although there is a section on stripping the Sierra, it assumes you have the knowledge to know the difference when assembling because it doesn't. Bump Stops - The manual says to be careful when tightening the self tapping bolts, there weren't any, they were rivnuts and without putting any pressure they pulled through. I tried several solutions that did not work my final one that did was to fill the cavity with Isopon then when it had almost set (firm but not

THE BEAUFORD CLUB MAGAZINE

completely gone off) I drilled and thredded the original bolt into it and left it to harden. It seems to have done the trick, I must remember not to try any "Dukes of Hazzard" jumps! Engine Mountings - The kit was supplied with replacement fabricated engine mountings to suit my 2lt DOHC. The standard mountings put the engine too close to the steering shaft and the alternater fouls it. The ones supplied with the kit were slightly out of alignment and wouldn't bolt in place. I had to slightly enlarge the holes before I could get them in (both sides). They were drilled for the rubber and also for the pin to stop them swivelling, but I couldn't get them to fit into the chassis, I had to modify them again.

cross section of gearbox mount Gearbox mounting bracket - The manual says bolt to the angle iron in the chassis, but either my bracket is too narrow or the angle iron is too far apart! I've bought some 8mm thick mild steel bar from B&Q (thinner would probably be adequate), heated, bent and shaped it, then cut it into appropriate plates, to clamp the bracket to the rail. If I could weld, I would weld the plate to the chassis, but it should be ok. There can be no sideways movement because the bolts are against the chassis, longitudinal movement would be restricted by the engine mounts. That's my reasoning anyway, but I managed to get a slightly smaller bolt in to secure it instead of welding. Heater modification - The heater is normally in two parts with the blower motor under the bonnet and the heater under the dash. The two units don't actually fit together, so I started working out how make mould a plate out of fibre glass that would do the job, shaping it around some plywood etc. In the end I just cut the ply out, shaped it, varnished it and bolted it together with frame sealant on the joints (the normal sponge seal was perished). It does the trick. I've just got to fabricate some brackets to mount it in the car now.

THE BEAUFORD CLUB MAGAZINE

Wiring Loom - I had purchased a new generic wiring loom details of how I fitted it can be found on the electrics page. Talking to various people the most common solution seems to be to throw out the engine management system and the fuel injection system and replace with a standard loom and carburettor. I didn't and it caused a real headache at the time, but I'm glad I did it now.

And Finally

The Indian With One Testicle There once was an Indian who had only one testicle And whose given name was 'Onestone'.  He hated that name and asked everyone not to call him Onestone.  After years and years of torment,  Onestone finally cracked and said,'  If anyone calls me Onestone again I will kill them!'  The word got around and nobody called him that any more.  Then one day a young woman named Blue Birdforgot and said,  'Good morning, Onestone.'  He jumped up, grabbed her and took her deep into the forest where he made love to her all day and all night.  He made love to her all the next day,  Until Blue Bird died from exhaustion.  The word got around that Onestone meant what he promised he would do.  Years went by and no one dared call him by his given name until  A woman named Yellow Bird returned to the village after being away.  Yellow Bird, who wasBlueBird's cousin,  Was overjoyed when she saw Onestone.  She hugged him and said, 'Good to see you, Onestone.' Onestone grabbed her, took her deep into the forest,  Then he made love to her all day,  Made love to her all night,  Made love to her all the next day,  Made love to her all the next night, but YellowBird wouldn't die!  Why ???  OH,

come on... Take a guess !!! Think about it !!!  You're going to love this !!!  Everyone knows..  You can't kill Two Birds  With
