After Sunday @Eggleston, Teesdale last week....

We hit 'The Inn at Brough', off the A66, this Sunday!

Fab carvery @£8:75

Lovely weather, bit chilly (bit of hard core lycra action to be seen... Rather them!)

...... ooo err, missus!

I have a fuel leak. It is the small bore tank return, from the mech pump.

Last year the garage remade a section of brake pipe, badly rusted - let in with acorns each end, and then clipped up the plastic protector on top.... I think they might have nipped this rubber pipe :(

I'm at the garage 9AM and we will see whats up...

Following on from TheDoctor (Corolla choke/bad running) I have decided... as part of my carb refresh/tune-up... to fit a Manual Choke conversion.

71nFtUFwdnL._SL1500_.jpg
Arrived yesterday... MuchhoLonnggo

The car starts instantly and the choke does disengage BUT I'm not convinced it is going off completely >> I like ON/OFF controls so I'm fitting it! :)

*the pull handle is a bit 'lawnmower starter pull' but that will get modified to a simple disc knob.

Popped 99p on 10x 3MM black rubber blank caps, so I can neatly blank off the redundant Vac tubes around the carb + manifold....

Looked under the dash for wiring to install 'plip lock/unlock'.

Doh! Loom exiting door/with control wiring is wrapped like rope... I'll have to seriously think about the way ahead on this :/

Need a pair of T10 sidelight bulbs (one duff)

....LED any good? (not HotttBloooo!)

*edit >> found one in a Ring bulbkit in the boot = poondies special :)

Needed to use an OE spanner, like a screwdriver, to turn the holder as it is '8yr olds' hand accessible :/

Holiday Heed!

Few days R&R on the West side... Sumptious rumble across the A69. Anyone knowing the road will have 'creamed a few HGV' on the long bank @Blenkinsopp.

I stove the carpet pile from 55 at the bottom and crested, with an Aldi, @85.. That was the last of the HGVs.

;)
