My late father in law used to say "he's not tight, he's welded".

That would also indicate that someone doesn't know the difference between tight and slack advance.

So it's a new problem and was previously fine. Possibly better to say that in the first place. It's obviously not a gearing problem then.
Goes up hills fine in third, but dies on the flat. Have you got enough petrol in the tank? If you have we could be here for a very long time.

I would agree with the gearing theory. In the 60s I had a ZB32 Gold Star, which was a bit of a bitsa. A very peppy engine at high revs and would just hit 70mph in second gear. The trouble was it wouldn't reach 75 in either third or top. I wasn't experienced enough at 17 to work out what the problem was.

Yes Ian, toilet television in my book. One of many BBC (& other channels') cheap daily offerings.

About as useful as a chocolate fire guard.

A couple of years ago there were a lot of fake NGK plugs on the market. Perhaps some are still about, but not a problem I've heard of recently. Have you tried Bosch plugs?

That would be 5/16 whitworth.

Just a further thought, perhaps someone like Villiers Services could overhaul the stator and modify a set of points to fit. Any work like that will be 200 pounds upwards though.

There were a lot of suggestions on the Terrot thread, but it's a lot to plough through. However all pertinent suggestions will be in there somewhere. Good luck.

Or perhaps the jet block in the carb. has picked up a bit of crap in one of the drillings.
Feed back would be appreciated.

Yes, but have you re checked it?
