The Mk 4 ferret roars once more.


Recommended Posts

An hour ago, and After 25 years in a barn, the ferret burst into life once more.



And it ran great.



Initially it had no spark, so I fitted new leads, which was ok, but when I tried to fit the new distributor cap, it wouldn't sit right.

Looking at the old cap, I noticed that there was a small chip in the rim, where the condenser nut was obviously fouling.

Turns out that the washer under the nut was a bit thick, so after the offending washer was removed, it fitted perfectly and hey presto now I had a great spark at the plug.

I filled up the carb with fresh petrol and to my surprise it started straight away.

So obviously I am now Mr. well pleased from Essex !
