    Hi Len,

    I found the GJ ran in the 14:1 to 15:1 range at speed - good for fuel economy but not great for power. I believe I first dropped the GS needle about 1/4 stage, or about 0.03" and then to around 0.05" when it was still a tad rich at idle, but my memory is a bit foggy. I have to admit I've never been confident of my carb idle settings as there is so much that can go wrong between the...

    Only a few days ago, whilst another blast of heat was expected, low to mid 30's were expected. But that has crept up now, and with little rain in sight the outlook isn't 'sunny'; to use an unfunny pun.

    I won't be surprised to see 40c reported somewhere again, and it's only mid August.

    "An amber extreme heat warning has come into force, with temperatures forecast to hit 37C (99F) ...

    The front, even if it is there frequently gets clogged with rust and other debris.

    David:

    When you say "tacked" do you mean a spot weld or soldered together? I've removed my coil on a number of occasions, and saw no evidence of any tacking. My coil is retained in the dog-eared bracket by tightening a long screw on the underside of the bracket, then the coil and bracket assembly is bolted to the firewall. Mine is a LA-12...but maybe the Q-12 was in fact tacked to the bra...

    Is this limited to the XPAG or possibly still a concern for XPEG engines?

  • Ray Lee11 August 2022

    Yes both ends of the transfer passage, all engines have the rear one but a lot are missing the front.
    Gene Gilliam shows both in his photos.

    There is still a lot of speculation about whether Mr.Shafto is correct in all his investigations.

  • David Wardell11 August 2022

    My March 1955 TF came with a Q12 coil when I bought it in 1970. Many years later I looked at the stamping on the bottom and it said 9 48.

    And I thought that the hold down clamps came already tacked to the coil, so wouldn't be a good guide as to what was there originally.

  • 1952 MG YB

    Am Trying To Find A New Home For RHN 551 A 1952 YB Saloon.It has belonged to the same owner for 45 years, has all original documents and modern V5.
