  1. We have re-booked but the Swan were not confident they would be trading in the same way next year.
  2. Thanks for rearranging this trip Stuart. Those dates are fine for us.
  3. We cancelled our booking a couple of weeks ago, next year sounds good if we are able to go
  4. I had a similar problem with my EFI system. It was an earth on the EFI loom. I had looked at everything but it wasn't until I removed the EFI loom, it is separate to the main car loom, I found one of the earth connectors had rotted off inside the insulation so it looked fine but there was no connection. When given a firm tug it fell apart. I cannot remember which earth it was but perhaps checking all of them would be a good first step. Found this if it helps finding the earth.

    Stilton Run Lunch

    The Stilton Run has been cancelled. I guess all those who have registered will have/will get the Email. Cancellation Letter Stilton Cheese Run.12.4.2020.pdf
  6. Green Manalishi Fleetwood Mac
  7. Following closely after the bolting horse, I found this in my archives. When I had a pinto on EFI I found it invaluable, It may be of use in the future. Another tip I found very useful was to have a spare dizzy, attach it to an electric drill to spin it up. Any faults could be checked without having to turn the engine over

    New rear lights

    Managed to get a couple of photo's, just managed to squeeze the time in between doing very little and nothing.

    New rear lights

    These are the ones I fitted from SVC.... https://www.s-v-c.co.uk/product/led-rear-assembly-carbon-effect-housing--pair-/ Fitted almost exactly where the original RH ones came off. Looks like the carbon effect housing is unavailable at the moment though. I had to put a resistor in the indicator circuit which they can supply, I only used one resistor at the flasher unit.
  10. Looks like we have another victim of CV19......... From an Email I received today. As you are aware there have been several Government announcements concerning the restriction of public movement and mass gatherings to prevent the spread of coronavirus. Due to this we have made the unfortunate decision to postpone the Classic Car Show in Market Harborough, due to take place on 5 July 2020. We understand this is disappointing, however, plans are underway to hold the event in 2021.
  11. Stoneleigh Park Hotel contacted me to rearrange the dates of our booking to Saturday 27th June because the Kit Car Show dates had been changed.
