Yes, please! It wouldn't be a meet, without the obligatory reap - it's like my car knows! :D

Yes, essentially HT leads/cap/rotor arm. Maybe coil, depending on what the actual issue is with the misfire! The first lot haven't been changed since I've had the car (+9 years) so well overdue for a change anyway!

I've got a commitment Saturday morning, so will aim to join you all mid afternoon. :)

I CAME, I SAW, I REAPED! :D

A massive thank you to Dan AKA Dbro 4 for sorting out my misfire (which in the end involved changing leads,dizzy,cap/arm & plugs) and all in under 2 hours - absolute top draw Dan!

Thank you also to Alistair for replacing my belt, which was well overdue a change. You know how much I like to hold onto my old belts though Al! ;)

Unsurprisingly, the car runs beautifully again now and didn't miss a beat on the way home.

Always great to see everyone again, as well as meeting some new members. Sorry I couldn't stay over for the duration this time, but a good laugh as always.

All the best
Carlos

Hi!

Firstly it was great to finally attend and meet everyone. Your wives definitely made mine feel welcome ( which is good as I am given the thumbs up for another meeting!).

A big thank you to Nick, Alister, Darren, Mike and everyone else I reaped from. The car was finally running right for the drive home. The car was as good as gold this morning so I would take that as problem solved.

Work done -
CPR changed - Nick to recalibrate my old one
frequency valve relay - better connections made.
Pressure spring re-shimmed 0.5mm shim. - Pressure now 5.3bar.
Throttle linkages adjusted correctly.
Air intake gasket leak fixed.
Mixture fettled to perfect running - Nick (the delorean whisperer)

reaping success! :D
Bills yet to be settle :shock:
