  1. Hi Marting,

    What a fabulous offer. I live at Old Harrowden, near Shortstown (the famous airship hangers}, just off the A421 Bedford bypass, so easy link to you.

    Either you to me to take a look, or me bringing the complete assembly to you would be  fantastic. I will be talking to mark the mechanic this afternoon. I think he might suggest the test engine route.

    I will get back to you as soon as I have talked to him. My telephone numbers are  01234 741356 and 07841 164241.

    Thank you,  Colin

      Hi Colin, off for my first jab in a minute and I am collecting some plating from Arlsey this afternoon. But other than that we are usually only out for dog walks! 

      I think the best option would be to stick them on the test engine - it cannot be doing your car any good running at 3000rpm from cold! 

      If it's just a matter of realigning the butterflies happy to do it for £75. If the spindles are worn I can let you have the options (I can make replacement spindles, you could exchange for CR throttle bodies that work with CP linkages, you could exchange for CP throttle bodies and linkages etc.

      If you are happy to proceed, I can collect or you can drop them off (just let me know when) also please leave the throttle linkage and and choke assembly to the throttle bodies so I can test it all together.

      Kind regards

      Hi Martin,

      Tried to ring the number I thought was yours  and didn't get through, but didn't check this forum earlier. Sorry about the delay. I work as a volunteer at our vaccination centre, but my only shift  before Tuesday is 4 to 8 pm today (Saturday). Apart from that I am home all the time.

      Would you like to collect the parts so that you see the whole car, and take all the bits you need. as I have said, I am out of my depth with this problem. Please phone or text 07841 164241 or E-mail  c.caborn@yahoo.co.uk to arrange to come over at your convenience.

      My address is 253 Old Harrowden Road, Harrowden, Bedford, MK42 0TB.

      Harrowden is a tiny country lane just off the A600 near Shortstown.

                            Thanks, Colin.
