It's taxed

Sign in to follow this  


Waiting for tax disc to arrive so I can try it on the road.

Today I worked on the carbs, balanced them to get air pressures aligned and it does seem to run a little better on tick-over and rev up nicely but the real test will be when it's on the road.

I've replaced the otter valve (complete with ali tube) with one I ad in the store and the fans no longer come on as soon as the ignition does, they do however come on when it gets hot so that's a good sign. I've replaced the rusty header tank with one I'd repainted so that's a little tidier.

I'm now really keen to get it on the road and find out how it behaves while driving, hopefully that tax disc will arrive soon.

All being well, yes.

I still has a list of things to be attended to, Fiz didn't realise I had literally printed the list out on A4 and was ticking things off. The main thing will be a test run to check for no misfiring.

I am a retired engineer (not cars!) living in Spain. I am restoring a 1984 Excel because I must be a masochist. Can you please tell me what the connector in the centre of the inlet manifold and the solenoid on the end of the carbs is for? Much appreciated. Thanks Richard
