  1. After reading the comments on Andy's thread I think I too have a propshaft problem. Ever since the car was fineshed ( 2 years ) when you get to 50 / 60 mph I get a vibration that feels like your sat on a hammer drill which gets progressively worse the faster you go. There is no vibration through the steering its through the seat. Thought it was a buckald wheel so changed them , no success, changed one of the driveshafts still the same, checked the uj's all OK. Bit heath robinson but put the car on stands and ran the car then wedged each wheel in turn to see if the vibration stoped , no joy. After all this am I right in thinking its the prop? Just after some advice, confirmation before I dissmantal the car to take it out Thanks Ian

    ignition timing

    Thanks for the info, its set at 11 at the mo Poss bit of confusion on my part but when you read the manual there is nothing about setting the timing with a timing light only static, but when you look at a usa speck car there are two different settings. Which made me think the advance weights in the dizzy would throw the timing out if i used a timing light and i would have to set it slightly out to compensate. ian
