    Reconditioned carbs/distributors

    I’m looking for someone selling reconditioned genuine solex carbs. Also reconditioned Bosch distributors. Or someone who reconditions them close to Sheffield. I’ve been recommended to look at a Weber carb to replace the standard solex, but not sure what or where to look. Any info appreciated.

    Engine question…

    Hard to describe, but what could be causing a jerking sensation when driving, eg every second? Not so noticeable when accelerating, but say if cruising with slight accelerator it’s a general jerking in time to the engine? All clearances set, new points and condenser and plugs and all tuned.

    Blowing Fuse

    Just need a clue at to where to start looking. Recently a dues blows when starting the van. 72 crossover. Somethimes have to hold ignition for it to start to turn over. Today hold, nothing happens but then the fuse pops, tried 3 times. Could it just be a dead or dying starter motor?

    Cutting out when hot

    Standard 1600 engine with electronic ignition, when on a long run and engine is hot, is does a few coughs, then when coming to a stop everything dies, and won’t restart until sat for a while, then takes a while to start again, but then fine for a bit. Any ideas? Thinking distributer?

    Wipers wiring

    Ive looked into this before but not managed to sort. Wipers work fine on both speeds but don't stop at the rest position, so have to stop the switch (on the dash) at the right time. Have checked the earth which is most common fault, what else can I look at? Cheers!!
