Its been one of those one step forward, two steps back kind of evenings today.
The step forward:
Got the (points replacement type) electronic ignition module installed and sparking. Then added a little conduit over the exposed Red and Black wires that go back to the coil
After setting the static timing I though "right lets the get the old girl running again".... Nope, no start. After some basic checks I found that no petrol was reaching the carb - even though the gauge is indicating just above the red zone. A cap of fuel down the carb confirmed this as she raced into life. Well at least the electronic ignition is working
We are off on holiday tomorrow, so no more updates for a couple of weeks I am afraid.
Be back soon though!
