It's a disease amongst UK classicists to run things too rich it seems, I'm continually following cars are shows running so rich I can taste the petrol. The Anglia on the other hand, is no different to a modern car in terms of rich smell.If it starts first kick in current UK weather conditions without a choke, you've probably got the carbs set rather rich.
Yup, it is running rich, that's the job this weekend. Although I tend to use a bit of choke on cold starts.
I'd imagine so, he's painted the common rot-spots. It hasn't worked. :lol:
Anyways, in the 3 days I've left it sat it's decided it no longer wants to engage 2nd gear properly on downshifts. Looks like I'm going to learn double declutching and rev matching as it is probably worn synchros showing in the cold weather... Also got a new battery but need to test the alternator first to actually find out if it's working properly to make sure I don't damaged the battery.
I tried double declutching in the Anglia due to the lack of synchro on first. I got bored and just stop in second instead now. :lol: Of course, a useful skill to learn, and even moreso now for the Captain!
