    Having checked out the fuel system thoroughly, cleaning all filters in the process, I was convinced that my misfiring and lack of power would be a thing of the past. But I should have known better and paid more heed to Barney's site which says "90% of carburettor problems are electrical". I replaced the condenser this morning and, hey presto, the problem is solved ... but this is the 3rd condenser...

    I don't understand what this all has to do with AH or MG?
    I think we know the opinion of some of our members, and all the time expressing it in this forum does not help anybody.
    It only creates friction and irritation.
    Let's talk about our cars and related subjects.

    Lawrence, do you compose you missives in Word, and then copy and paste them to the BBS? They appear to have a lot of words in them.

    I just realised that it appears that your blog is on a website whereas mine was only a Wordpress Blog.
    The Blog is easier to do but not so versatile once you have it up and running.

    Hope I can help you more at Lands End, we will be there late afternoon today hopefully.

    Thanks Declan for the specs re the bushings. Do you have any of these made up. Machining cost are astronomical here in Ca.?

    Geoffrey my comment re catastrophic failure was in relation to an exploding fan blade due to fatigue not a cooling issue. But your comment is well taken and discussed at length in other recent threads

    Cheers

    Hi Jim.
    Nice to have met you at last! When's that smaller S/C pulley arriving?!?
    I got home only to find that the lock nut on my throttle cable had come loose so I wasn't even getting full throttle doh! Anyway I'm happy with my 200 HP ha ha!

  • Graeme W05 September 2015

    As the cable fits at the outermost end of the pedal arm, I'm not sure that moving the attachment point will improve matters as that is where the greatest "throw" will be.
    It's all easy to check by wedging the pedal down and seeing whether the butterfly still has more movement available (engine off of course!).
    On mine the only solution was to bin the organ pedal and bend the arm so at rest t...

    Cheers Greybeard. -- btw, I've got one too now. ;).

    Long way to Kent to collect it anyway. lol.

  • Lawrence Slater05 September 2015

    It's still bloody cheap at the moment. Even I might be tempted to buy it and hire a van for the day to collect it.

    Thanks for the information, David. I'll go looking for the one you describe!

    For sale is my lovely MGF 1.8 car with 82k on the clock.

    The car starts but does not drive, this is due to the hydraulics in the clutch, it could be something as silly...
