d.o.i tech weekend

Postby cis6409 » Mon Sep 05, 2016 8:25 pm

hi
had the excellent pleasure of having admin bloke over for a tech weekend here , it was brilliant very tiring but super satisfying to get alot of engine issues sorted with some cars over here and to have the opportunity to learn and understand engine set up and k jet system..
of course there was also some time for some beer food and craic as ever.. :D

big thanks to nick for his time and expertise much appreciated :thumbsup:

we got 7 cars sorted with varying jobs some easy and as ever some challenging , and ive finally got my cold warm up/ lumpyness richness issues sorted all down to a faulty vac delay valve of all things !..
my car is running feckin fantastic really happy with it thanks nick :D
