    Mark,  Richie told me about your trailer tent break down.  I have a car trailer at Belvoir camp site.  Do you still need help...... 



    Thanks for the offer, someone from the Staffordshire club picked me up. Just a bad evening recovery firms were quoting 6 hour plus delays.

    Thank you

  2. Plan a failed - kit car misfire

    Plan b failed - can't find tow hitch for tin top

    Plan b back on. *bleep* trailer lights not working

    Plan c - can't be bothered to fix lights and wait u til it's dark.

    That's it, going to make the most of the day light dragging the trailer tent with or without lights see you in a few hours.

  3. Probably a little attention to detail with clips, fuel and brake pipes that will be visible to the tester. Uniformity and straight lines, insulated wiring terminals will fill the tester with confidence of the build.

    Morning mark.   Are they Weber 45s.   If so order a new set from WEBCON it’s the new 5% ethanol fuel the new ones made by WEBCON are ethanol proof. 

    Done, it's where I got the original twin 45 with 5 progression holes. Just waiting for delivery, fingers crossed for this week before Santapod.

  5. A few members have noticed that my car is smelling a bit rich. It has been on a rolling road twice and always comes off slightly rich to play it safe.

    Anyway thought this weekend I would investigate further. On inspection of the carbs I noticed cylinder 3 & 4 had petrol pooling on the chokes. It appears the needle valve was not closing or the fuel pressure was to high.

    Stripped the carbs and needle valve was OK, free to move and floats still adjusted right.

    The floats are black plastic and not the brass type, but I notice one set was slightly heavier. I shook them but could not hear fuel sloshing, tried the float test under water and could note see any bubbles. WTF. So I put them on the kitchen scales (don't tell the wife) and one set was much heavier. However, when squeezing the heavy set I noticed fuel oozing out, rammed a knife into it and noticed they are not hollow like the brass. They were a like a sponge with a  hard case.

    Problem solved just need to order a set of floats for dcoe and fit before kitfest.
