Hi. I desided to write down a littlebit of my long term project. I have been installing few megasquirts in last 5 years. Finally I'm close to make it work well at my old lady
It all started as usual. Carb started to mess around and I don't know anything at all about them
Todays carburetor spare parts are more and more NOS parts and therefore bit difficult to get.
So, It is 1970 Viva. All basic. Drum brakes etc. I'll bet some older forum users may remember these.
I desided to take this project thorough not the easisest way. But to look outside as orginal as it is today. It is 1 point throttlebody injection. Maybe some photos tell more than my not so good english.Outside
at least 5 years ago. Today it is covered with bird s*** Enginebay
It is messy. But it has been messy as far as I can remember...Something is wrong
if comparing to normal Stromberg.Throttlebody
Does it work ? Yes. It runs, barely. With HD code it doesn't even spray any fuel. Standard code works better and with it it is running. Barely. There has to be somethng mecanical fault, airleak etc. Maybe this is revealed and fixed in this summer. And who knows, maybe I could get it thorough local MOT. But before that I'll have to fix brakes and and and
BTW Despite Lucas bad reputation in electrics. This car has never been burnt or leave driver in darkest forrest roads. Only to parking lots or desiding to not start at all
3b fixed fuel pressure.
