I won't hijack your thread any further with RBRR stuff... but I'll probably start a TDC crew thread closer to the event so we can coordinate spares and tools across the teams from the club that are running in the event. Unless CT/RBRR organisers decide to run a spares list this time themselves - they didn't in 2014 last time we did the event.
Sounds like a plan :thumbsup:

RBRR, off the reserve list, payment made, hopefully the car is tuned up and ready by then.

Fantastic! Tim Bancroft (the organiser) estimates that there will be approx. 20 withdraw between now and the event... so we should be joining you at some point!

Have not done much due to flu type recurring symptoms.

But since the car was on the rolling road, the idle revs have slowly kept dropping down, probably due to warming up and not driving.

As none of the settings have been adjusted or tinkered with, and the fact there are no more
points, the only items which may differ in any way are the spark plugs.

So took them out this morning, and run them in the ultrasonic cleaner around 5 times, will put back later and see.

I know plugs are cheap, but they are NGK Iridiums at £28 a set, and I have the cleaner already, so why not.

Plug cleaning did not help, but putting the old BP6ES helped,
however the problem has been traced back to splitting fuel lines, again !

Indeed, but I want to attach a motor directly to the dolly regulator, the universal
kits are a bit plasticky.

The reason for the pics is, I need to see the gear to allow correct ordering of a motor,
but there were no decent pics on the net, (plenty of indecent).

Still none the wiser until I drill the rivets off and remove the crank handle box, unfortunately
the regulator Steve has sent me seems to be in better looking condition than my own, so I
will swap over tomorrow and then remove the box.

The throttle linkage has always been an eyesore, a cleanup was inevitable.

Have to paint it, I done clear laquer on the oil filter, and it has not lasted even with
the sump protector plate.

Take a look at a Panther Rio door, they extended the arm rest to cover an external motor over the standard handle spindle, and incorporated the switchgear in it too.
