  1. Is it bad that I want it to be as original as possible in the engine bay though... I know its got a webber carb but the rest is as it would of been..
  2. Might just service that then as have a few bits and will do dizzy spin timing ha or borrow a strobe Can strobe it at some point. Will get it hot and set carb properly too though
  3. Right so the carb is clean, the tappets are done. The engine sounds sweet... The exhaust however sounds..
  4. Not got it on road at mo as doing seals on bits.. So have floors out.. I need to have a proper look at it rather than a few minutes here and there. Just can't see how or where air might be getting in.
  5. Carb investigation just done, so with choke full open on start it's actually a little worse. Then when up to temp I put the idle mix fully in and it runs lovely, when I turn it out slightly it starts popping.
  6. Def got both the little fasteners out. Damn spring being completely fudged on it...
  7. Anyone know how to remove the winch drive shaft, I have a new spring arriving but the thing is solid, have taken two grub screws out but it won't budge, lubricant and rust inhibitor added too, still no movement
  8. Rain has properly stopped play, it's something I'm going to look at Sunday pm after I'm back from a fishing trip in Devon.
  9. Does the peddle come back as expected, if yes, replace the flexi hose between the slave and the clutch itself. It may have collapsed internally. £8 fix if that's the culprit
  10. Decided to clean up the winch I have, so have redone the gasket on the underside. And thought I'd clean the base, ended up. Taking it off and doing a proper clean up and will then paint it up.
  11. Webber 34ich was fitted by a previous owner, so it is only idle you can play with.
  12. Not tried that to be fair.. As didn't have alot of time, just hoping I've not fudge the float level
  13. If lean its acting like rich which I know it can do. Hoping no leaking. Guessing a potential leak could be anywhere on the carb to inlet or on the inlet to engine.
  14. So the carb is clean and the truck starts on the button, but the engine is now hunting, could (if the mixture is right) the float be a bit squiffy now that I have cleaned it up and replaced the needles??
  15. Pahahaha... I definitely taped up... Haha
  16. Another post another picture or two. Tidied up the front of the chassis where visible. And also put first coat of paint on the tailgate hinges. Colour match is good too.
  17. IT was poorly painted black (looked brushed on)... So dipped in thinners, wire brushed off, then rattle can primer and silver.
  18. Couple of silly little jobs today. The grill had been painted black, so I've put it back to silver as I did not like black, didn't look right, also sanded back the rear chassis and lift handles and resprayed. Looking to take the seat box off in the week
  19. It's non stop now, winch is on the worktop for a clean up and fresh seal. And have new rear tailgate hinges as the old are fudged and who ever had it previously didn't do a good repair.
  20. It's a webber 34 ich. So maybe different to the Haynes. Only has idle and mixture
  21. Yeah it does sound like it's getting too much fuel. How can I check float as its not visible. Could the float of gone back in wrong position as I've put new part in?
  22. It's rough as hell cold, spotting out smoke.. One step forward, two back ha
  23. So I have done the service on the carb, gave it a good clean out and now starting the truck it's running silly rich. Am I right in saying it has to be warm before you tweek the idle mixture? It's spluttering like crazy
  24. I now have the grill soaking in paint thinners as it's been painted black. And today have taken the carb off to overhaul it. Currently it's just drying out after a spray of cleaner on it.
