All quiet on the Kitty front. Got my spare transaxle out of the stores and prepped it, ready for going into Kitty when Alan gets back from his Greek Island!
It’s just a standard rebuilt Dave Weedon transaxle. We just want it running. Alan is taking the car to a show near him and I am taking it to Ormskirk Motorfest on August Bank Holiday. Battle scars included.
Had a bit of trouble with incontinent Dave. The ‘O’ rings on the carbs started leaking, so I replaced them with a set from Bob Allan @impclub spares, which I thought had fixed it but one of the gaskets I put on leaked so all the carbs came off again. This finally stopped that leak but there is still a leak from engine or transaxle or both and a drip from the rack. It runs out of MOT in September so it’s off the road in preparation for the restoration but not until I have finished the outstanding jobs.
I have taken on another Imp to use while Dave is off the road. ‘Eddie’ formerly known as ‘the slut’ which was Jimmy Crampton’s red saloon. I have work to do on it before putting it on the road. The engine needs looking at, some tyres, a check over, new stereo and a good polish. I will use it and share the proceeds with Jimmy when and if I sell it. Saturday 17th June is the Motorsport News Circuit Rally Championship awards night at Oulton Park. It should be a good night. BBQ, awards, entertainment. I am driving so it will be a dry night. I will try and get some photos for the website. Alan is away, so I am going with Bob Allan. Andy Jones was coming but he has to be at Cadwell Park with the cards he has built engines for. Good Luck.
Information, technical help or just a chat is still free and happily given.
