PostPost by: el torro » Sun Oct 22, 2017 8:00 pm

After forever,car made road run under full power,very quick very noisy,good handling,needs more tuneup on carbs ,adjust fuel pressure,indicators stopped working,bad connections on 3 way bullet connectors,just need better weather to get more confidence in it and longer runs,it needs run in unfortunately

lovely original coloUr mate, BUT the running in routine may be more than just taking another ride and adjusting idle. i once said to friends: "with this type of hot cams its hard to keep a nice idle: BS ------------ praying (HOPING) yours is just a few more miles on a lovely curvy road with NO cops! sandy
