IT’S ALIVE!!

After much mucking about with the carb and cleaning the whole fuel system, Dave from Trabi UK managed to find me a NOS carb. I fitted this yesterday but the battery didn’t have enough grunt to fire up so I think I flooded the car. I left it overnight and put the battery on charge for a few hours this morning and it fired up almost immediately!

A pleasing cloud of 2 stroke smoke hung in the sun over my driveway for a while until the car warmed up. I just need to adjust the idle speed and its all systems go!

New carb ordered

After the fiasco with the current carb that is on the car, Dave from Trabi UK has managed to source a NOS carb for me… its all paid for and going in the post today. With any luck it will be with me in the next couple of days and I can get it bolted on before the weekend… looks like the car may well make Wheels Day now!
