Big thank-you to Mike D and Ian

Post by Abes on Sun Feb 19 2012, 18:27

Like to say a big thank-you too Mike and Ian for all there help this afternoon with my Lister A, started off sounding like a bucket full of frogs, now sounds like it should do (though Ian says it could still do with a litlle more tweeking) lol but to my old ears it sounds like the dawn chorus, looks like it boiled down to not just one thing but a few, but after sorting the timing the governor, swaping flywheels over and checking and sorting carb 3-4 hours later it was sorted so again a very big thanks to both of you.
