  1. Thanks Mike i can't believe it tapped the top of the carb with a hammer (gently) and thought it will never run properley, well started it up and all is well fired up on all 4 cylinders took the car for a spin and it was fine, thanks Mike.
  2. Hi i have a problem with my 2b with 2.o pinto last time i drove it things were fine went to start it a week or so later and it wouldn't start i checked for a spark which seemed ok reset the points, checked to make sure fuel was getting to the carbs (webber twin 40s) plenty of fuel. eventuallly the car fired up but badly.one of the leads looked damaged so I've changed the plugs and leads but still ran badly its only firing on pots 3 & 4 so i assume it must be the carb for pot 1 & 2 i don't know a thing about these carbs. i undid the butterfly screw on the top and unscrewed the 4 jets they all looked clean and clear not sure what else to do any help would be great this is all a big learning curve. Thanks Barry

    I hope the chap who has driven to Italy in his kit car replies to this he went through the Gotthard tunnel its the third longest road tunnel in the world, he made it and i am sure he didn't hold his breath. i used to drive coaches through there and none of the kids could hold their breath the entire length of the tunnel.
  6. I'll try and make it be nice to have a run out and meet some new faces
  7. Nice to meet you all hopefully i will be there in the robin hood next month, no baby yet.
