Last time I checked it sprung back quite forcefull, it's a facelift which I believe had a different spring in to pre face?BPV is quite easy to check by hand and observation, plugs and leads will cause misfires or proper hesitation and jerkiness, I'd be checking belt wear first
Those bulbs are impressive mate!
Where they 921 or 581 types out of interest please?
I'll check the BPV, belt im running an 1360 on a 15% so already the one down. I noticed a difference in cold start that frosty spell end of last year, so wondering if its the plugs, work is only 7 miles so it does alot of short jorneys, I fould up some CR8es in a couple months, so I'll pull these bkr7ies out and seeif the car is at idle the vac should be strong enough to keep the valve held on it's open stop, easy to test byt seeing if it moves further by hand, and as long as there's good tension and smooth closure onto the other stop it probably isn't your issue,
belt....check there is a hole visible of the tensioner safety strap above the body of the tensioner, if not and the belt is recent try a next length down, different makes have different lengths, different factors have different makes etc.
haha, the bores are a perfect size for gin bottles!I'd be finding ways to get that table working ?
were the plugs tight?
are you running a pulley with no map?
