Recommended Posts

So she started up fine today. Took down the street and she conks out. It reminded me of all my bikes and older cars so i though was the carb. Ohh pulled the bowl off and was like ehh whats this sacrifice a lamb to the dark arts is this...

So with a bitta confusion i call a smarter mate than i. He in 5mins gets running almost perfect. And drove down the street perfectly was stoked. Then when she warmed up satrted playn up. So we found the points are shot. 

Hahhaha oh well bit of a learning curve. So will find some new points but atlest ive driving it feeling mint. So i know it will soon enuf
