  1. Good point RobH. I'll check it in the morning and adjust as necessary. I'll let you know.
  2. I changed the plugs about a week ago, so they look good. Regarding being "over rich". When the car was running well, I would individually lift the piston in both cabs and the engine would start to stall. I believe that is an indication of the mixture being too lean.
  3. RobH - I will check the pistons, thanks for the suggestion. When the car starts it chugs and will only rev to 1200-1500rpm. I keep constant pressure on the accelerator - then it will die after 15-20 seconds.
  4. Jochmes - Thanks, that's what I figured. I have since drained some oil from both carbs. Unfortunately, it hasn't improved the issue. I will recheck, ensure I have 6mm and try again. Thanks again.
  5. I recently bought a 1970 TR6 with twin Strombergs. This certainly is not a fully restored example, but the mechanics appeared in good shape. One of the items on my checklist was to check the oil level in the carbs, as I suspected, it was low. I topped both off with 20-50. Now the car barely starts! I was careful not to overfill the dashpods, but it appears that somehow there is now oil in the fuel system - is that even possible?? I have considered draining the oil to see if that makes a difference. At the moment I am at a loss. Any advise would be much appreciated. Thanks in advanc
