    Hi there, good luck with the car, when you do get it.
    Just a quick word of warning!
    Send logbook off, wait for logbook to return, and then SORN it. Do not try to Sorn it before your name is on logbook.

    Wow its great to learn some history of the car. Looked cool in green with black flames. Got a few ideas in my head of how i want it to look. Nothing rad just satin black. Would like a sunvisor for it and a few little bits and pieces. Untill i get it home and see whats what with it, then i'll know what to do with it. Still havn't worked out how to get it home yet Lol.

    my bold. I measured it up for a sunvisor once, and If memory serves a 100E one will fit, the three piece type with a centre section.

    Kev, the idea was touted very briefly with Ratty when he had a 100E a few years ago, this time at Billing. I believe the NSRA were not exactly enthralled about the idea of all those pikey's, sorry, day visiters, getting showered in sparks LOL!

    Cheers Blown 100e. I have bought an A frame. Figured by A frame, get car home, sell A frame. So shouldn't cost too much more than the diesel i use to get it home.

    She's home.

    After an epic journey of small catastrophies she's nearly home. 5 hours after leaving Bristol. She's parked on the road opposite my driveway. Thought i'd be able to get her running so i could get her up my drive. Buggard if i can get her started . Pretty sure its a fuel problem as she will fire up on easy start? She's got a 2.0l pinto with webber carb (standard i think?). There are 2 fuel pipes that come up to the carb and i think 1 of them is blocked, well i can't blow or suck anything through it? Have tried rigging up a small lawnmower fuel tank to carb and still nothing. So have given up for tonight. I'm not to hot on mechanics so not sure what to try next? and i really need to get her moved up onto the drive asap.
    So this is my start to owning a Kustom. What have i let myself in for . Have also found speedo, wipers, indicators don't work

    Hi Low Expectations,

    You say it has a Webber carb i am assuming it is a twin choke. With the air filter off if you fully open the throttle you should see a squirt of fuel go into the carb each time you do this if not i would be inclined to whip the top of the carburretor off just to check the float has not got stuck in the closed position and also check that the needle valve is clear.

    I think this would be as good a starting point as any, it is a bit difficult to make other suggestions without knowing exactly what you have fitted on the car. You are more than welcome to give me a call if you think i may be of some help to you.

    Cheers.

    Russ. 07762 - 747643.

    Cheers Russ. I'll investigate in the morning (i'll have to get early and have a look before work lol). From what i could see it is a twinn choke and its not squirting anything, So will be a good starting point. Cheers Danny
