Road test results (part 1)
Well done Marvin, you got me to and from work, only two backfires, the carb is set up very very rich at the minute, so much so I cannot use the choke, needless to say it doesn’t tick over cleanly and doesn’t like rolling along in a gear. BUT the good news is I managed the 5 miles to work and the 5 miles home, which is a new world record this year for long distance journeys. I shall be playing with the carb settings this weekend in order to try and settle the car down and become more road usable.
Tomorrows plans are get the tappets set, flush the oil, and set up the carb….. If I find more time have a look at the exhaust as I have a blow somewhere on it and it doesn’t sound sweet when it blows.
