    Yes I'd love to start a new project, but disciplining myself to carry on tweaking the truck and enjoying it for now. Best to concentrate on one at at time I reckon!

    Sometimes I think about moving out of London, but its not what my wife and I really want to do.
    So I'm gonna try and enjoy my truck as much as poss now, and maybe sell it, or swap for something with historic status when ULEZ reaches my street.
    I normally find that I'm ready for a change of hotrod after about 10 years anyway, then get renewed enthusiasm with new project.

    Thanks Mark, but I'm already modifying a bonnet stay from a TX2 taxi. Seems appropriate!

    Also today went for a spin with both carbs hooked up, wow, spins tyres really easy now.
    Previously there was a slight pinking sometimes, timing is spot on, but I noticed that the vacuum is so great that on light throttle there is probably still enough vacuum to advance it. So I disconnected the vacuum advance and all is well now.

    Apart from the bonnet stay I'm still needing to connect the breather pipes, various other little jobs on my list.

    Ah yes, Thanks Neil.
    But why didn't those engineers anticipate that I would want to fit rams close to hot exhausts and design them accordingly?
    Cha.
