Re: cutting out problem (2.0 - 32/36 weber)

Junk the electronic ignition, go back to points. I'd agree with that also. Points seldom seem to fail, they wear down over time and are easy to replace, but they don't fail as electronic ignition can do. Many people who do an electronic conversion also carry points around in case of an issue whilst...

Re: cutting out problem (2.0 - 32/36 weber)

Have you investigated the possibility of a fuel blockage? For example if there is crud wandering in the carb channels, it could randomly find a jet and block it, car would stumble and/or cutout then. With carb in place you can remove the idle jet and mixture screw and blow compressed air both ways t...

Now that was a toy. One of the best selling of the decade, incredible. I do have the figure.

Re: cutting out problem (2.0 - 32/36 weber)

I threw a timing light on it although as I was in a rush I didnt undo the Vacume pipe. I only have TDC marked up and I understand its a crap video so will re do this again. Mine 2.0 Laser runs great set at 8 degrees, which I think is actually the standard spec too. So may be a good starting point f...

Re: Advice / Opinions

Andy's advice above is excellent as usual, to be honest though you haven't given anywhere near enough info to value a car. It's not even known if the car starts, let alone runs, or even the mileage.

Re: cutting out problem (2.0 - 32/36 weber)

How come my return pipe doesnt come out of the same side as the fuel In pipe?? That does seem strange, hopefully someone will know, the return is usually on the opposite side of the inlet. As for the rest of it, there's just too much bombardment of info and stuff to be honest, there is too much goi...

Re: cutting out problem (2.0 - 32/36 weber)

it doesnt cut out when driving just when maneuvering / coming to a stop. Mine was like that, my assumption is that braking causes a strain on the system as a whole (servo, brake lights), so if the system is flakey then the issue is more likely to happen at the moment of braking. As mine did, unitl ...

Re: cutting out problem (2.0 - 32/36 weber)

I've had car randomly cutting out issues twice, first time it was a (brand new) coil which would occasionally fail (don't buy an Intermotor one!) and, more recently it was a dizzy cap/rotor arm change which fixed it. So, I would certainly look to igntion/service parts first, and make sure they are u...

I think it should read 'switched live on the starter' or similar Martin, autocorrect in action maybe?

Re: Who Remembers?

Used to love those little water games, and was thinking about them quite recently too Nick. Great fun :) My younger sisters (7+8) have recently got these and are obsessed with them - they love it! That's brilliant Danny, there is still hope for the future of our world! :) I thought proper toys were...

Re: Car Shows Return

I guess that the organisers would argue that they don't get enough revenue from the public to cover the costs of the show, and that if they didn't charge exhibitors then the shows would stop. Paying for shows is an unusual thing for me as I said before, it does seem to happen to the shows in the Sou...

Re: Car Shows Return

if there are any others that charge I'll just go as a visitor instead. Andrew. That can be much more expensive though. For instance, for the show which inspired this thread the cost for a visitor was I think £8.50 each for an adult, lesser amount for kids, so that's quite an amount if there is a co...

Re: Car Shows Return

I rarely pay to go to a show, maybe it's a North/South thing. You can keep it to the South if you don't mind :)

Re: Car Shows Return

Thanks Andy. This particular show is one you have to pay for, I don't normally go to these much but with the drought we have had this year I was exited enough to pay and go! Booking in advance only due to the track and trace things in place at the moment, including the public, it is a two day show b...

You certainly get stuck in and do some good stuff with the bodywork/paint on your car. Quite inspiring actually.

Car Shows Return

I see that the car shows are returning, I'm going to one this weekend. So it is looking promising, I know many on here love the shows and are fed up with the lack of them, so hopefully you can all get back to it soon :)
