13th June, Show Time!
Yep, it's the Hamstreet Festival of
All was fine & dandy until on the way home,
1/2 way up the hill on the A251 towards Challock the V8 cut out dead and she
coasted to a stop on a bit of a scary blind bend. We used Ed to tow Doris to the
top of the hill, then stopped to investigate. No spark, ooo - the Lumention
sensor had come adrift in the dizzy, snagging on the optical chopper and pulling
3 blades off. Refitted sensor but she didn't really want to run on 5 with random
fuel injection, so got Elaine to tow us the rest of the way home with Edward.
20th June, Action.
Pulled the Lumenition bits out of the dizzy, fitted a set of points and a condenser then after a bit of fiddling with the timing got her running again. A quick test drive seemed to prove that there was nothing else serious wrong, so should only need a bit of a tweak to get her running nicely.
