So this afternoon I played with the HB, removed the old Weber 32 ICT carb and stuck on the Solex 30IZ. All fits well and all the rod linkages fit fine. I attempted to start the car and it will fire once then die, I need to set up the static timing, set up the carb and check everything over at least twice more before I try again. Another reason for not starting it is the lack of juice in the battery, so that’s on charge should be done for the morning, as its cooking on gas mark 3 as I type.
I decided all I could do in the mean time was make good what I could under the bonnet so I spent some time with the old rags and some cleaner / paint restorer, its come up rather well not mint, but very clean and tidy.
Tomorrow we start again, expect nothing to go to plan, as too many things have gone right this week!
