Well I checked the timing with a 30 year old light I found in my fathers shed with dead geckos and it was 10 degree out but the needle seat in the carby was sticking so I got Bob from Ipswich carburettor service (0412 668 173) to do his magic, he did a wonderful job tracking down a full kit for me and refinished the carb body to look like new and lots of shinny bits to impress the old guys looking at the engine bay.

|This is one of those projects that followed me home 9 years ago and for some reason it is still there. I found her in a very sorry state dumped outside my local wreckers and I felt sorry for her and brought her home. I hide it the corner of my shed till I had time. In the mean time I have moved four times and she is still with me. Since it her 50th birthday this year we thought we would give her a fresh coat of paint and some seats and crank up the old girl.
I will update the progress via the web site, please email me if you have any hints or pearls of wisdom that can help us on the way.
