Trouble At T'Mill

The Metro has been running very well but pinks quite a lot so yesterday I thought I would retard the ignition a tad, after that it would not start but smelt strongly of petrol so I left it overnight. Today it still would not start so further investigation was required, there is no stark at the plugs but their is a stark from the king lead. The contacts inside the distributor cap were fury so I cleaned them up and the rotor arm, but still no spark from the plugs. I have ordered a new cap and rotor arm.

This is all because I said it would be fine for the Festival of the Unexceptional next weekend!

Nice to put some more faces to names. . I’m back home and quite a pleasant drive back involving getting stuck in a police pursuit!

the invacar was in remarkably good condition. Minor tinkering should get it a1.

jinlongling was started but no drive. I somehow got the job of removing the belt cover to inspect only to find the remains of the belt in many pieces wrapped around itself. That would be why there’s no drive then.

slowsilver and I cut the grass under instructions from his lordship. And quicksilver, Beko and I erected the main tent for next weekend.
