I'm new here...

Post  AF on Sat Jul 06, 2013 4:53 am

Hi, I'm new here, in the midst of getting my vega back on the road after 14 yrs
a few teething problems- tick-over is sweet but when revved up it's backfiring and blowing original air filter across my shed-

K plate vega, ports /airbox tweaked to 1960's stage 1

new orig piston in old bore,seems ok. checked timing @21degrees (with dial gauge) 80 main jet (don't have 78 yet) etc

slightly loose baffle pipe (the one behind the dog-bone)

can anyone proffer some advice?

Welcome A.F . I cant throw any light on your problems, but if you try asking in the general chat you might get lucky. We don't have a problems section which seems a little strange.

Thanks,

I managed to get it running sweeter in the end- a new condenser did the trick- now revs out nicely (but taking it easy for the sake of the new piston)- it's a tad gutless at the moment so another thing to investigate....

Thanks,

in the process of making soft tooling for the elusive rear light boot grommet - will produce a batch in silicone if anyone is interested....
