Since then it has been quite noisey when started. More clattery than it was before.
Today after sorting the tank seal I started it and again quite clattery on startup - sounded like my old Cavalier TD.
So I ran it til hot and then gave it a standing Italian Tuneup and then it was running as before - all lovely smooth and quiet. There was a short, 5 or 6 second period, during the high rev run where it did run lumpy and blow a little blue smoke, but then all smooth and back to how I remember it.
Does anyone have any ideas?
Obviously I'll have to wait a while before I can start it from cold again, but was just wondering.
I would add I have not connected the MAFAM section, just the TU3. Even though it is a bit gutless at low revs and actually needs quite a few revs to get it going from a standstill. But it never produces any smoke, so I don't think it is overfuelling, although to me it always smells a little chokey. However both Russ and Andy Willi disagreed with regarding the fumes smell.
