it starts first time and runs all day without missing a beat. it runs well with or without load, and is quite good with the petrol.

Hi Clark,

Just take your time, its a few monthes until the start of the next rally season. Its not worth rushing the restoration just for one silly mistake to hash the whole job up.

Im a petter man my self so if i can help il try and point you in the right direction.

Look forward to seeing your finished engine.

Good luck,
Paul

Hi all,

I think my over-ethusiasm might just be the excitement at the challenge and the dreams of what I want her to look like.

God, I sound like a big kid at christmas. LOL

I will have to learn a little more patience. Earl, Paul, Mike, wise words about not rushing it and dropping a clanger. Smile

I am hoping to be able to pick up an engine for spares soon courtesy of another good member, Thanks Lewis, so I think she might be running soon. Smile


Anyway, thanks again, I will learn Very Happy

Clark.

cheers study

Weve all had the urge to bash on and get the job done only to have to start again.
Were only passing on our experiance.
