    Hi All, sorry i didnt make this one, but as the club was offline i thought i would play it safe and said i would go to Lytham hall, a cracking meet for anyone in the area, and three other cobs for company, how many of you went in the end?

    there were 5 cobs in all Col (including me ) - weather was a bit dreary whilst there (we all dashed out to but hoods etc on) but it cleared up for homeward drive.

    Been cracking the flags were we are all day since - typical - lol

    running right, hmm - see sig (doh!) - she coughed and spluttered on overrun all the way there and back, stalling at traffic lights and crossroads etc, unless revs were kept up. Not idling properly or at all either. Not been used for about 1mth, but was running fine prior to that.

    One thing i did notice when i'd got home and had a poke around (I rerouted a plug lead, and dizzy moved when i unplugged lead) was that the dizzy hold down bracket had come lose. Not sure if the dizzy has been moving at all whilst driving, but it did when lead removed - now not sure if timing is correct. So will need to go back to Ken @ EDA. - grrr i hate cars....

    I thought there were two blacks, one yellow, 1 green and a red one (although one of the two blacks could of been a dark blue???)

    I don't think any photo's were taken, weather didn't help, although i had taken my camera with me to get some, but didn't

    Thats a Defo with the timing Gary, you urgently need that sorting but very easy to do yourself, all you need is to borrow a timing light, and set to 35 degs (where is the degree key?) vac disconnected, it has been said before that unleaded goes off, cant see that myself but if true yours could have turned to jelly from lack of use! LOL

    Forgot to say you are welcome to borrow mine if you prefer, but you will have to pick up, unless someone nearer will lend you one

    No, both black. Black is the colour. All cobras should be black. End of. You can have white stripes as well, as this enhances the black and makes it look even better. You know it's right.
