Becky has gone & Blue is running again.
Due to a house move I'm having to reduce the fleet so I've decided to sell the two Acclaims that are on SORN (Becky & Blue). I'd listed Blue on eBay and Barry McGrath the Acclaim Guru offered to buy Blue and he has also agreed to take Becky away. Tonight he came up with his mate Dan and after a struggle we got Blue running. I had a suspicion that the fuel line was blocked but with the help of a compressor it was soon cleared. After putting the HT leads in the right order and robbing the rotor arm from Becky II Blue was running again. This car hasn't run so well in a long time. Becky was partially reassembled to appear more complete and once the rear brakes were freed off and some air put in the tyres she was rolling again. It took a bit longer than expected so Barry will be back at the end of the week to collect Blue. This gives me time to get Blue ready to be hooked up for towing away.
