  • GuyW16 May 2021

    And this morning, leaving the ignition turned on for 25 mins and it's not visibly leaking !

    But the sky is.

  • Steve Gyles16 May 2021

    Struggling with the annual servicing. Back killed me after struggling under the car to remove the oil filter. Now on to other things.

    Very slight 12 - 6 O'clock play on both front wheels. Disc brakes with WW. Checked to see if it was worn spline shaft play with the wheels. They are fine. The play is very, very slight in the bearings. With the wheels on I was getting 10 thou movement on th...

    Last test drive in it was Friday. About 20 miles (Speedometer not working yet) Varied use from grass-up-the-middle lane to A6, Shap summit and town traffic. Only noticed fuel smell at low speed in latter.

    Be good to hear how you got on, and if you found the answer

  • Nigel Atkins16 May 2021

    When you were on the road were you going far enough and varied enough, rather than taking the handbrake off and rolling down the drive or lane that some think of as a drive.

    Roads with the 'chippings' surfaces can be good as you can get a good constant level of vibrations for a sonic clean. Pump your tyres up more, vary your speed, plenty of braking and or gearchanges and steering wheel m...

  • Nigel Atkins16 May 2021

    IF I remember correctly it's a 1973 but like with most (almost all) I get the impression it might be a bit of a bitsa plus there was at least wiring knitting by the PO so things like tachometer could be a Jonny Cash, but I might be wrong, I've only seen that video and a few photos in previous thread(s).

    Unless PaulW had tools sitting on the bare wing I thought the engine sounded loud and ...

    The flooding last night with the engine not running was as I sorted my indicators. It was late, so I just switched off and let the fumes dissipate. I've not investigated further. But I realise from petrol smell that it has been doing this on the road as well. I will probably get to take a look at it again this afternoon.

    One can dream!

  • Nigel Atkins16 May 2021

    I was editing my last post based on Guy's last post which as often happens to me was posted whilst I was still typing, then anam posted.

    This was/is the part substitute.

    I've had the rear overflow but I think that was because of the choke sticking on it or other stuff catching, perhaps dirt/debris/crud, it's not done it since I've finally managed to stop the choke on the rear sti...

    I've got a dual vacuum/fuel pressure gauge. Draper. Cost me about 10 quid a few years ago.

    If you have similar, can you put a "t" in the fuel line and rig up the gauge.

    With the ignition on and the engine not running, vibration elliminated, either the sealing of the jet is marginal, or the pressure is building because the pump isn't stopping, and is overcoming thr seal. BUT, why ...
