    Get yourself a quality carby rebuild kit and pull it apart give it a good scrub and put it back together with new kit in it. If one thing is worn out you can guarantee there will be more stuffed parts in there. Just have a nice clean surface to pull it apart on put all the bits in order as they come off and put them back in reverse order. Its not as hard as it first looks. I rebuilt the carby on my daughters hardtop in a couple of hours from go to whoa with zero experience. She is a neat ride it amazes me these granny spec cars keep appearing.

    That loop pile carpet beats the hell out of the modern stuff and it lasts forever. My daughters car has the original stuff in it and it still looks great 37 years later. She is coming along nicely keep the good work.

    Bonnet Bracing

    You beat me to it Banjo. That was the question I was going to ask of Dave.

    Bonnet Bracing

    I am hoping to get the chance to fix this on the week end. I will make sure all the animals at my place are locked away safe and sound. i got a giggle out of the cows trampling the bonnet. Those animals have no boundaries.

    This is from a Gregorys manual. Hope it helps.

    Bonnet Bracing

    That was my concern changing the shape of the bonnet. I use that sikaflex at work. I might have a practice run pushing it down before committing to sticking it. It was nearly dark last night when i found it. See how I go in the harshness of the daylight.

    Bonnet Bracing

    Hey Rollaphites So I was helping the Princess give her hardtop a bath. When I got to the bonnet I noticed it was popping up and down as I washed over it. Upon popping the bonnet and having a look underneath I discovered that the adhesive that bonds the bonnet bracing to the sheet metal has given up and gone home. It is across probably half of the bonnet. So my question is what can i use to bond them back together and any ideas on how to secure them in place while it sets. Thanks in advance. .. G
  10. I went over all the obvious connections last night and didn't find anything that stood out. It is a bit hard to diagnose when the fault has gone. It will be one of those things that hangs over my head until it happens again. So I m hoping its not a Friday midnight failure. I have hinted that the Princess consider a later model car, that suggestion was met with threats of physical violence against my person. I am sure glad she loves me. Thanks for your help. I will keep you posted.
  11. So it turns out the Princess got in it yesterday and turned the key and got nothing. She thought the battery was dead and that I had something to do with it. When I got home I walked up stuck the key in the ignition turned it over and she fired up straight away and idled quietly. i didn't even have to give it any pedal. I drove it to her work and picked her up, the Princess drove it home and she never missed a beat. Stop start traffic and open road. Its baffling. I checked battery terminals when I got home and anything else that I may have disturbed. Nothing stood out. I hope it was 'just one of those things'. It does have a ballast resistor standard. I checked all the values and they were within the tolerances required so that is why I went ahead with it. So I am hoping this will the be the last I hear of this.
  12. It appears that I spoke too soon. The Princess went to go to work this morning and the rolla wouldn't start so I'm in double trouble as the missus had to get up and take her to work. I have no idea what is going on as the message I got was it just didn't start. So looking forward to getting home this arvo....not! Fingers crossed it's something simple.
  13. So i bit the bullet at the end of last year and got in touch with rob roy classic road and track and got an Accuspark unit for the Princess' hardtop. However it has been running really well and I have been super busy so it has sat on the bench since it arrived early January. Cue the fury from a nearly broken down teen and so it was all hands to the pumps on the weekend to get her rollin again. It was a pretty simple install I did have to grind a bit here and there off the base plate to make it fit perfectly. Probably an hour all up. Kicked her over and the timing was way out so she wouldn't start. Out came the timing light and 12mm and we were away. Took her for a spin around the block and all good. I don't know if there is any performance improvement but time will tell I guess. So fingers crossed I wont have to deal with an angry broken down teen again.
