  1. Near tramway museum Derbyshire, cut out coming to a junction and won't restart. Turns over, feels like it's just about to fire but then back to just turning over .
    Engine very hot, even dissy body is burny
    Rac on way but is there something obvious to look for?

    Maybe time to go home !

  10. got any abrasive paper ? give um a rub .
     
  11. I use Mrs Cunny's sandpaper nail files - just the right size and shape to clean points.
    The last time mine broke down like that - the RAC bloke spoke on the phone half an hour after calling them - he said just put gas pedal to floor and turn the engine and away it went - heat had vaporised fuel in carb - choke was flooding engine.

  12. Say where you are quick someone could get some in post 1st class to camp site. I cant, I dont have a set.
     
  13. try this^^
     
  14. Don't forget if rotor arm is coked then you probably need to do the inside of the dizzy cap too.
     
  15. Think he said the points had failed rather than out of adjustment or dirty., That sound right?

    Should I be worried that the dissy body was burny hot? That may of caused points to fail ?
     
  16. It was bound to happen ...

    At least it is summer....:D

    Try turning the fuel tap "on"...:hattip:
