lob a large bottle of redex in the tank too, that will help clean out the tank and carb as well as give the inlet valves and rings a clean..

when mine had trouble starting it was because the piston rings are worn and exhaust gasses wear being breathed into the carb pull of the hose from the top of the engine to the air intake see if it fires up.

Hello Everyone,
Pleased to say Ashley & Mick identified the reason the 1256cc engine would not fire. Stale fuel. I drained the remains of 4 star petrol that had been in the tank for the last 20 years (lol). Added a gallon of unleaded and after finally identifying and freeing a sticking stromberg carb piston she fired up immediately, and ticks over nicely.
Thank you Ashley & Mick

   :Welcome: Hello there! I've got headrests in my car (What with it being a GL saloon 8) We get extra chrome a black panel between the rear lights and a Phillips radio!!!) so maybe its worth looking on ebay for some or from a breakers. Failing that there are loads of after market seats that have been fitted.

    Very sorry about your prang can't of been nice.
