A new cooling discussion

Hi.

Pleeze - start a thread on the car to keep a record of work done; and a picture is worth a thousand words, so much better than sitting at a keyboard (which is what I'm doing now...bah!) :)

Annoying misfire

My first thoughts on this... Is the fuel delivery OK, or just managing to supply enough for tickover/no load? Could be when moving from the Idle Jet to the Main Jet the fuel flow isn't working, so possibly there's a blockage in there somewhere. Can you see whether the accelerator pump in the carb is...

Rear axle oil leak

Peter,
Thanks for clarifying my comment on the collapsible spacer; I did the same with mine - marked the position of the nut and re-fitted the flange after replacing only the seal. Diff is still working OK.
