Hi Sam, Is that a space invaders game? It looks nice :D

Tony.
It's Missile Command - an Atari game that came a few years after Space Invaders. I'm repairing/restoring the last of my collection so I can sell them on to fund an engine build for the Spitfire.

So that's a bit of an embarrassment.... tonight she started just fine.
All I can assume is that extended cranking with too much choke led to flooding when I tried her yesterday.

Tomorrow on the way to work I'll see how the refurbed/balanced propshaft gets on at motorway speeds.

The balanced prop seems to have cured a lot of the noise/vibration at 65mph+ but I wouldn't describe the ride as quiet.... I'll have to investigate further.
Next job is to cure the oil leaks around the pump/filter area though so she doesn't mark her territory quite so much.
