    I use premium fuel here but the tailpipe is ď sootyĒ - not just dark. I noticed today when I was test driving it, the engine would misfire ( flutter) ) for about 2-3 seconds and then smooth out for 4-6 seconds. It continued this cycle all the way home - about 3km. Itís been hot ( 28C- 30 C ) most the week and the car definitely does not run as well in the heat. Lastly, it is very hard to start af...

    unleaded fuel tends to run with a darker tailpipe colour
    With the plug colour you might have picked up some old semi stale fuel or some with a touch too much ethanol in it
    If you try to run E10 the plugs go white
    There's always the chance of fuels getting mixed up at the petrol station
    I,d wait till your tank is nearly empty and try it on some fresh fuel then recheck the plugs

    'Did an OST with the Melbourne club many moons ago, it was out past Calder raceway there somewhere- Andrew Rennie and I took our V8's out for a go at it- He beat me, I had a fairly tight lsd in at the time which wasn't exactly good on the slippy grass and created a bit of humour for the lookers on
    Good day though-couldn't stop laughing
    Funny, about a fortnight later was on a plane...

    Vietnam Veterans day in Australia today 18/8
    This date has been chosen to give Vietnam Vets. here a seperate day of their own out of respect for the effort they put in for us all
    It is a date that comemorates the battle At LongTan on this date in 1966
    Yep, that's right 52 years ago---unbelievable
    To the many Vets. out there (many struggling)
    Thanks guys

    Allan,
    Great story on the April 2015 MGA special - it came to the Club from the wife of a prominent MGA owner who died suddenly. In regular use at our 100 acre hill climb property. Male models supplied by A Register.

    The black Coupe photo was done at night using flood lighting and time lapsed photography - stunning.

    Hi, it hasnít changed and had been running fine. Iíll check the floats first...seems to be a carb problem..,

    He says it had a six volt battery in it when he received it and has had it to two mechanics. I guess not British car guys. No wonder nothing want's to work properly. I have B's, a 76 midget and TD and understand the positive/negative ground stuff . Not familiar with this year of midget so just wanted to get the correct information. Hope to see the car this weekend.

    Thanks for the comments
