  1. Choke Woes

    I tried to connect up the choke to the carbs on the car, but I couldn't work out how the cable was connected to the bar. Some one had cut the cable in the past, so I just had the bolt and about 10cm of wire hanging off it.

    Luckily I obtained spare complete bar, connector and bolt. I swapped out the bar, threaded the wire, and then sheered the top off the bolt ...
  2. Connecting the steering wheel

    The steering column is sprung loaded - in fact there are two springs. One is at the top underneath the central boss where the horn is, and the other (much stronger) spring is at the bottom were the the column connects to the universal joint.

    The bad news is that the rot was at the bottom of the arch as well.

  4. Integrale visits Shetland, Orkney, North and North West Scotland (Final Part)

    The UK is pretty flat. We don't have too many big mountains. Hence we don't have roads like the Stelvio Pass.

    The closest we've got is Bealach na Bà - which tops out at 626m. It's still a fun road.
