To start with adjusting the fuel mixture on a fixted venturi carburetor only set's the mixture at idle, as soon as you move the throtle the mixture is down to jet size and air flow.

I think he got some pic's so may be able to get them off him. I got on the next group for track lap's, due to a TVR owner on our site. His c...

Lucus or valvoline 20/50 are both very good, allso the lucas heavy duty oil stabilizer added will put you nearer the original spec for the 260 engine. I hav...

I gave my 90 deg adapter to a machinist, he took 3mm off the face, and re gut the groove for the "O" ring, then opend up the oil hole in the bolt, it now fit's behind the headers no problem.

Hi Pushrod
Take the wire off the sender, top of left hand tank, put the ignition on, then put the wire to earth/ground. If the gauge goes to the top, the fault is in the sender.
