I wpuld like to say a thank you to dcd1979 for today by the way. It was bloody cold and this brave soldier was wrestling with a clevis pin and adjusting the selector rod.

Oooooh Matron!

Not much of a poster but good to see your posts again. As someone who struggles with my own mental health, autoshite as a community is a good (albeit anonymous for me) support!

Its dark and scary sometimes Carlos.scary thpughts dont help either. Im still riding through it.

Keep yourself distracted & occupied my good man. It goes a long way towards keeping those thoughts at bay.

Lovely Volvo/Daf by the way. Slush box too! Proper autoshite car.

Im thinking gummed petrol now. Today she has ran fine. No issues or stalling except a small flutter when i nipped in motor factors. Also the emv has been repaired so gearbox works fine and its no longer as high revving. Some fresh fuel and use seems to be helping the small niggles

No clue sorry, all i remember from back in 04 when i was after one is that the 440s with the carb fed 1.7 had a fairly common issue with the carb base plate warping, but i think that led to a petrol leak more than idling issues. Luckily the 440 i ended up with was injected.

Is it a Webber twin-sequential carburettor?  if so, these are a twat for getting sludge build-up in the well between the two float chambers.  If you take the top of the carb off, you'll see there's two float chambers (one either side), and a drilling in the bottom of each of them, which links them together in a wide square U shape.  The four jets in the middle draw fuel from the centre of this U,

 

Of course, being the lowest point, that's where all the silt and shite builds up.  I had awful running issues with an X1/9 with this design of carburettor until I understood how it was designed.  A quick blast of compressed air through the drillings in the correct direction, and a chunk of gasket/sludge/bleugh the size of a Tic-tac came hurtling out at speed.  Was absolutely fine after that.  Frustration level of issue 346/10.  Cost of repair £0.  Bastard carburettors.

Over past 2 years ive lost countless cars,been homeless, had a serious van crash,marriage failure twice,disability and a mini stroke. The folks here have helped me through a lot. Some i owe so much to for keeping me sane. Ive fell out with some being grumpy and yea i may be a twat but i really enjoy all of your company.

Welcome back mate - nice wheels ... hope you are better and back to 100% asap.

 

One of these days I may try a 340!

Might be worth checking your HT leads. I had a similar issue on my old 340, couldn't find sod all wrong anywhere. Even the HT leads looked good. It was only when I pulled one off and looked into the end connector I could see it must have gotten damp and corroded badly giving an intermittent or weak spark.

      Going to try this on here before the fun that is eBay or similar.
       
      My mum has recently replaced her trusty old SportKa with a newer 500 and currently it’s just sat in the garage.
       
      It’s only done 38k with I think mum being the third owner plus a very large file of bills. As you can see from the MOT history ‘a lot’ of miles have been done in the last few years....! Has the leather interior, an aftermarket Bluetooth kit, Air Con that works and four good tyres plus working remote key.
       
      It has had some attention by a welder in the past but the filler area is solid and other than a few obvious bits on the sills and corners of the rear bumpers is in nice condition.
       
      If anyone is interested please let me know. I’m back there later this week so can look at the paperwork or anything else on the car in more detail.
       
      She’s looking for about £750-800.
       
      Car is currently SORN and located in deepest Lincolnshire (near Spilsby).

      My attempt at living a shite free life has failed. Trawling e bay/ gumtree again etc but I thought I'd put out a wanted ad here. I've been browsing the for sale threads, but is there anything your thinking of moving on and would like to keep in the fold and have a hassle free sale? I'd consider anything but something fundamentally ok with a bit of MOT would be great. There is a bit of a strange condition- unusually I'm free this Wednesday and rarely at all other times- so being able to collect during the day this Wednesday would be perfect.

      Copied over from Shite In Miniature...
      Note for future reference...  I've decided most of my Matchbox (-sized) cars can go.  It's a vast collection,   Most have been repainted at least once - by me, obviously.  My eyes and hand aren't good enough to do them again.  I've got way too many to list so ask if there's something you want and if I've got it, we can do a deal.  Most will be 50p each plus postage, so it'll make sense to build up a parcel.
       
      I thought it best to do this, then I'm not clogging up the main thread.  This could well go on for months.
