Well float level was OK so all back together fired it up connected a tachometer and managed to get an idle of about 750-850 rpm but it was a bit uneven. So after a few laps we managed to get it into 3rd and even 4th a couple of times so it is running better and resisted the urge to stall but still lumpy low down. Thing is didn't really find anything... Old petrol?

Seems like you're getting there, some fine tuning and tinkering are the joys of carb cars, every box ticked gets you that bit closer,,

Have you re-checked the plugs after all this messing with the carb?  A new set is easily wasted and then replacing them can do wonders....Also if not running clean in hich rev ignition leads/cap/coils are suspect...
Has a compression test been done?

I have had running problems from the ignition module on the distributor. I never really established what was going on but running a wire from the mounting point to a good earth helped.

Hi all
Have spent a bit of time on the Y10 as I want to give it a run round the site to get a few miles on it to keep things working but it has been too wet. Did manage to fit a separate earth lead to the distributor and replace the exhaust rubber hangers as it was knocking on the rear suspension. Quick and easy job time will tell if has stopped the noise. The old ones were pretty tired

That's a teasing inclusion of a vintage camera in the exhaust rubber shot. The chamfered ends of the body hint at Zeiss Ikon but the lens isn't familiar. Do tell. What is it?

The camera is a Braun Colorette IIBL...it has lenses that fit with a bayonet mount very complicated.

Like this...Can't figure out if it is all working as it should as the only manual I can find is in German...I think the rangefinder is stuck so it will have to have the top cover taken off for a look see

Thanks, what a nice little thing. I resist the temptation to pull cameras apart as they are so complicated inside. Two of my more precious ones need work and they will be entrusted to a specialist. I did strip and rebuild a Thornton Pickard 60th anniversary model in my youth but things were rather more agricultural with 1914 large format cameras. My Zeiss Contaflex has a similar bayonet lens but only the front element is interchangeable on that.

How interesting as in the same joblot came a CONTAFLEX...however someone has been fiddling with the insides as the whole lens assembly just drops out so I think some parts are missing. The shutter still winds on and fires but the focusing is not working.

Meanwhile the Y10 managed a rather chilly 3.4 miles round the car park and is a bit smoother as the exhaust is not banging...it also kept running enough to manouvere into the unit. but look what was chilling out just round the corner after having a bit of welding done...

New toy the Y10 needs a new ball joint pressing out/in and the front wheel bearings would need pressing out if they are shot (after 98000miles?) and the Suzuki has a screaming rear wheel bearing so should pay for itself over time.

Nice press, handy too that it's bench sized so you can store it away when not in use  Cool

The beast is bolted to the bench so it won't fall over...managed to do 2 rear and one front bearing on the Suzuki but really need a slide hammer to get the front hub off as the outer race stays onto the hub when you finally get it off. The race is now stuck on the hub and Suzuki list a special puller but Youtube came to the rescue. As the race is no longer needed because the new bearings come as a complete unit the race is no lnger needed so a kind man on Youtube showed a method of grinding an X into the race and bashing out a V shaped bit that releases the grip of the race on the hub and with a bit more bashing it was off with no damage to the hub. So we powered up the compressor and gave the 3.5" saw thing a try out and 10 minutes later it was off Amazing!
Thing is the gearchange on the Y10 is next to unuseable so I need to put some new bushes in (using the new toy) so do the Fiat Panda ones fit? vaguely remember Ed China changing some on a Panda...

I seem too recall there are nylon bushes in the gear change that wear and need replacing periodically.
