    Engine rescue!

    Not a bad idea that. Give it a proper clean up and then get some good glass to put ontop...

    Morning all, picked up a 67 2a a few weeks back so thought id pop in as im sure I will be asking for advice as I start the journey of ownership. It is a solid example with a good running engine, juat the brakes and clutch seem a little iffy. Clutch peddle is all fine movement wise, but the return into the slave fro. Gear box is slow at best. Brakes just need a bleed and adjustment to the shoes I think. Here is a pic from yesterday when out feeding Cheers Adam

    You can see on the image of back of sump where oil is, which is leading mento the crack seal. The leak only occurred after i toppes up the oil and after a few miles journey, sat after the work was completed with oil in, no leak occured. Also is it me or does the large bronze stop not look flush in the other image?

    Right. I have replaced the sump seal, and i still have oil leaking from the back of the sump, where it meets the gearbox.. Have i got a possible inner rear crank shaft leak???

    So the oil is coming out of the rear corner of the sump or looks that way, the runs down to the plug and drips. Is this just where it hasn't sealed properly or is there potential of the krankshaft being a bit drippy?

    Well my luck with the sump gasket change has run out. Oil coming out the rear on the sump, I might of made that out of my own doing, by possibly putting to much oil in as it was on low so topped it up but now its sat on or slightly above high. Will clean it all off and then check the bolts haven't worked loose

    @lo-fi thanks for all that information, will come in handy. Next thing, what oil do people use in their air filters?? I never changed mine when I cleaned it as didn't have any. So 15/40?

    Last night I had to sit doin bugger all for 15 minutes for it to start again... It has to be the carb causing the issue, it is dirty so might be worth taking it off to clean, unless there's a way of cleaning it whilst in situ?

    Ah okay, well it seems to be running okay, and doesn't smell rich, only time i get a plume is on start up so possibly just the carb being junk...

    Think there is only a idle mix setting on it, as I have tweeked that, but if there are potential heat issues on restart thats a pain in the rear... Also going a little crazy, where is the float..

    Got a mag tray so thats all good. Truck sounds great now and runs good. Just doesn't like restarting, so seems to be flooded when trying to start after a journey.

    Ah man... Don't like the sound if that.. Taking carb apart

    So she runs well now after I have tweeked the idle. But...... It is still running rich.. Timing seems to be okay, so what might be causing the over fueling.

    Sorted it, the small brass plate wasnt making a connection to the bulb housing. Simple fix.

    This evenings fun.. Only problem i have is the bulbs don't sit right, twist in then push back out too far, i have to push the side light bukb back in a little for it to come on. May I have the wrong style bayonet? The at 12-6 and sit Right at the base of the metal. Pic of the modification I had to make due to non round holes

    How easy is timing to sort? I might be able to get hold of a strobe.

    Sump Gasket removal

    Have got the sump off my truck and have started to clean it up inside and out, the seal is pretty well on and wondering what the best way of getting it off is. Ive started to use a chisel to get under it and off, but there must be a better way Cheers
