Re: Possible fuel problem.

Ok, just tried it with fully charged battery, and plugs cleaned and gap set (1.1mm) I found on here. So put Plug 1 on the front panel next to an earth bolt and fired it over, on my own but it was dark so I could see a spark, not brilliant but given the connection to the earth is probably not neverth...

Re: Possible fuel problem.

Cheers...
The battery charger readout did indicate battery was at low V and charge so may be an issue.
I'll clean and reset plug gaps first, put them back in and see what happens...

Re: Possible fuel problem.

Thanks for the tips... it's not raining so about to go out and fuse fiddle.

Hi, It's a thoroughly wet day and I went out to start the car, it fired then stopped. Lights on dash all ok and turns over but no sign of actually firing.

Re: Replacing Radiator Core or New one

Thanks.

Rimmer has this https://rimmerbros.com/Item--i-GRID001099 I think I'm 2. I've just inquired with a local Rad special...

Re: Clutch Slipping

There is a manual adjuster above the clutch arm.

Do you know which way to turn it please? Having a go tomorrow.

i assume to the Rubber Block is to jack the clutch arm arm to take the pressure off first.
