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!

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.

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

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.

      I have a Vespa PX. I love it. I commute daily on it.



      I don't have a bike license so I'm riding around on L plates which I'm finding frustrating given that I appear to better understand the rules of the road than 99% of other drivers. Or at least I know how to break them politely. Also I'd like to take a passenger from time to time.

      I'd like to take my bike test, direct access ideally, and I fully understand it's safety training as well, but £700? Ain't gonna happen. I'd like to do it myself on my Vespa, and given that it's a 125 and manual I could do restricted licence test on it couldn't I? NO! I hear you say! Why not? Because bureaucracy. How dare they take away my rights? You could probably fund the NHS with the money that they'd save by not ruining my life etc..

      So enter the LML.. A copy of the Vespa Made under license in India. It's identical in all but name and some suspect quality electrics. WCPGW? Because of modern regs, they've got a cat and hence a bit slower in standard form than the PX that they're based on, until you unleash an extra 10th of a horse by drilling a heart shape in the air filter. True story.



      So anyway, given that they're identical only slower, you couldn't possibly take your bike test on one could you? WRONG AGAIN! YOU CAN!! Apparently it's hard to hit the 31mph required for the MOD 1 test, but I think the naysayers aren't trying hard enough. WCPGW?

      ​So enter an ad on an owners forum. LML, 2 stroke (essential), 2000km, 2 years old, "broken right indicator". £MEGA BARG. I bought it about 2 months ago. Unseen obvs. The only problem is that it's 120 miles away. Several idiots on shiply claimed that they could collect it for reasonable money before changing their minds on time/date/ location. The vendor is a gent, a minister no less, and has been incredibly patient. However as God's birthday is approaching he was becoming less flexible making it harder to co-ordinate with a courier. Van hire seemed expensive and something about him told me that his arms to would be too weak to help me lift it in to a van.

      FUCK IT! Train booked. I"M GONNA RIDE IT HOME. IN DECEMBER. Forecast says rain all day tomorrow. WCPGW??

      Just about an hour ago I went to start my car up, had Mrs Dustman with me, to go and pick Miss Dustman up from work. Turned over fine but took a while to fire up.
       
      Steering felt heavy. Thought maybe as it's currently -5 + wind chill it's just cold & the fluid is thick.
       
      Started reversing out my bay then I was greeted with:
      "DING DONG" - ABS fault.
      "DING DONG" - ESP fault
      "DING DONG" - headlamp auto levelling not working, contact service.
       
      I shut the car down straight away and we went in Mrs D's Corolla.
       
      Alternator is less than 2 months old, it's a recon unit from Alternator Man in Portsmouth. Hoping the cold isn't killing the battery and it's taking the 'nator out with it (battery passed the drop test last time the no-charge warning came up). Looks like a session with the multimeter after work tomorrow.....
       
      MEH.
