Hahahahahahaha.
Nothing ever changes lol. 2 miles to the destination and after a few splutters and coughs....
Fuel issues. I think the fuel I got from the local place was a bit "watered down"
The annoying thing was that we could hear the racing. The local PC Plod decided to pull behind us and do a reg check etc. Taxed, tested, insured, and I haven't had a drink in weeks thank you very much lol.

I hope it was just dodgy (see what I did there) fuel. A Morrisons station was selling contaminated petrol a couple of weeks ago causing havoc :mad:

It was BP. Ran like crap afterwards, struggled to tickover and had a few flat spots. When it stopped I drained the carb and took a gallon out of the lines but couldn't get it restarted.
Will drain the tank tomorrow and put it into both kids cars as they will run on it.
I've then got the carb to strip and floats to re adjust as I played with the needle valve adjustments.
On the upside, 55mph motorway cruising was pretty quiet

Stripped off the gear cable again. The heat sleeve I fitted on it turned out to be more of an oven! I've ordered another cable and some racing spec sleeving.
Just thought you may want to see how much work Tim put into the bracket.
