Curse this car!

Project Blue has me beat. I don't know why this car won't run. I think I'm gonna have to have a break from it for a while. There's no desperate rush to get it back on the road and when I come back to it I'll be in a different frame of mind. I've bid on a couple of factory workshop manuals on eBay so some more info will be of help to me.

I filled up Becky with petrol for the first time this year! I'll see how far she can go on a full tank. I took her for a trip over the Pennines (with my good lady) and round Manchester and she didn't miss a beat. I wish Project Blue was like that.

It's the cambelt, try robbing one off snowdrop and see if it'll go.

Toledoman, i read your blog with intense interest, it boggles my mind. Whip the sump of and make sure it has a crankshaft? I once bought a princess and the crank had been removed and the bores filled with tree trunks. Good luck mate.

You could always do a flintstone conversion with a local immigrant? Put a pedal box in, have the worlds first immigrant powered acclaim?
