Pinto dizzy runs off the cam belt via a jack shaft. If you disturb the cam belt you may well loose the accuracy of the ignition timing. Worth putting the timing light on the engine and checking what the timing is on cranking.

The difference between timing the cam to 105 or 108 ATDC would only show on a rolling road. How did you time the cam in. Dial gauge and protractor?

or you could have someone turn over the engine while you move the dizzy to get it running again.

well need new carb for mine as only did 26 mile on a tenner watched fuel gauge go down as revs up lol primary shaft on carb is worn and works out cheaper buying new than second hand or refurb, one thing after another and I think that's why mine was not starting when left for a few days too.

      Hi, im a new member and just bought a robin hood. On driving the car back, i noticed the coolant temp up over 120 deg. Sated! Seemed high. I stopped several times on the way home to let it cool. The seller had told me it ran hot, 100 deg he said!....not 120 deg! Anyhow, managed to get home ok. I assume the wind through the nose cone kept the rad just cool enough not to blow!
       
      Went out yesterday with my son. Can kept stalling in low gears and i had to keep restarting. The engine got hlt again, up over 120 deg so i tried to trickle home, but alas did not make it before the engine started smoking and i lost power.
       
      So 1 day old, my new dream car is stuck in the garrage! Really upset.
       
      Im no mechanic, in fact im hopeless with engines, so i need some help, any help! Is anyone on here local enough to spare me a couple of hours to help understand whats wrong and hopefully help repair?

      I'm hoping one of you genuis's out there can help a novice...
       
      Indicators work OK but my hazards don't! I've checked the fuses (all OK) and I've replaced the switch and relay but still no joy?
       
      If I disconnect the hazard switch the indicators don't work, if I flick the hazard switch on then the indicators also don't work! If the hazard switch is connected but not turned on then the indicators then work again...
       
      I don't know very much about car electrics, well actually I know nothing, but I've done the basics and come up with a blank.
       
      Please tell me I'm being stupid, or more helpfully, can anyone enlighten me?
       
      Cheers

      Hello, after many years of looking, considering and wanting a Robin Hood 2B I have taken the plunge. Recently I had a baby daughter and most men sell their 'toy cars' but I did the opposite and bought one!! I have purchased a 2B which was featured in the Autumn 2009 edition of Boys in Hoods, and can I say how chuffed I am!!! If anyone out there would like to take a beginner under their wing and share knowledge of things like days out, where I can get parts from, good websites and anything else you think I need to know then please feel free to knowledge me.
       
      Many thanks

      Hi All,
       
      About 6 months ago i bought a half built S7, Since i have been reading that the S7 are more work to get a IVA Pass. I will have lots of question but i would be greatfull if someone would give me advice regarding the rear suspension. the guy who originally built the car put coil over suspension which is great but would you have a look at the attchd picture and give me your comments as im not sure it will pass IVA inspection.
       
      Thanks in advance,
      Nick
