Managed to be home from work early today & the sun has shone long enough to dry the roads, just.
Right, she is running much, much better, a definate improvement, thank you very much for your help so far.
But... While trying to set the Idle mixture, number 2 cyl will only run blue if the air screw is right out (I mean I have had to take it out completely!) & the mixture adjust is right in.
With it like that I have balanced them all the same, and have turned all idle screws (apart from 2 of course) in untill blue, let it settle then turned out slightly to just before orange, and then rechecked the balance.
Took her out on the road, progresses smoothly now, but have only gone around the block, should really tax her before going any further...(does have an mot though). Been a little loathed to spend £100 on tax untill we was getting somewhere :-).
Is the carb u/s? Surely there must be a problem with it. It was like that before, but when I found the throttle plates were passing the progression holes out of sync, I thought I had cured it.
All good fun of course..
Does anyone have a 44 for sale? In case I need one..
