The weather in our local stubbornly hangs on to cool!
On Easter Sunday i went for a drive, and my son Allen had a chance to drive.
As there seems to be an oil leak, I jacked up the front, and let it sit, draining any oil on the sump guard.
Today I adjusted the brakes, and went for a cruise.
Need some more front adjustment, the car ran well, and we will check for leaks.
Friday 11 April I checked the oil level, topped up, and prepared to get her on the road.
On Saturday 12 April 2014, I took advantage of the weather and:
o removed the dollies, and put the tyres on the ground
o removed the old plugs
o charged the battery
o squirted oil in the cylinders and ran the engine on the started to bring up oil pressure
o gapped and installed the new plugs
On Sunday 13 April 2014, I checked fluid levels, set the tyres, and when Ed Mayer and his trusty son Nathan came over, we attached the new wires,
and started her up – right away.
I drove around the neighbourhood (streets), and she seems great!
Later, I went up to a petrol station, and filled up with fresh CAM 100
Might start up Mini this weekend
o blow out plug area with compressed air
o switch to new plug wires – one at a time
o remove old plugs
o squirt engine oil in cylinders
o run starter (ignition off) until oil pressures appears
o install new plugs, connect, and start
I might note that I hooked up my battery keeper, and it said fully charged after 2 hrs – left on.
As it is 25-6 C, I moved Mini away from the wall
And out into a big bay
