When messing with the ignition advance meant a mig welder and a file, adding & removing metal from the advance curve in the dizzy...those were the days!!
Same colour as my first one, though mine was a 1.3 obviously on an E plate.
You got that distinctive smell on your fingers from handling Weber jets...great!Quote:
TWIN 40'S ROCK!!!! I loved the sucking/barking/popping mine made on the Sports :)
No man could be serious about fettling without a pocket full of main jets, idle jets, pump jets, emulsion tubes, air correctors and chokes!
Proper tuning...a bag of Weber bits, a Snap-On timing light (which I still have), a 13mm spanner, a flat blade screwdriver and a length of garden hose was enough to tune Webers.
I always wanted a Nova Sport...I'd still have one now in my Lottery garage.
