Take the lobster top off mate, look down the throat and when you move the acclerator see if you can see a stream of fuel come out of the jet pointing downwards.

Never knew that was you on fb, i was first to reply on there to you  :wink:

It's cuz your such the babe mark haha :lol: Is taking the lobster off and looking for a stream in relation to the accelerator pump jet lever working properly? how much should you be able to move it by hand? mine moves in both directions with a few mill of play, it's just weird because i haven't tweaked anything since last startup so it's proper pickling my head, going to get the dizzy off tomorrow and have a mooch around then try fire her up

right so i'm in bluntys r5 facebook group and was told to check my accelerator pump jet lever to see if it was stuck, i've done that it moves freely even though it appears to be sticking slightly and also comes unclipped from where it mounts if i play with it abit too much, how much play is it supposed to have guys? it's a group a pos so i'm going to be getting a standard carb back on anyway i just want to get it through the mot thenn get spending

Pulled the 5 out of my nans garage to get it ready for mot and had abit of trouble starting it, it's getting fuel and has spark but it seems like it's hesitating, it was fine the last time i started it this is probably a few months ago, carb is dechoked etc i'm guessing maybe it's because it hasn't been ran in a while it IS firing though just not enough to start it, friends suggested checking the dizzy and plugs out and warming them up and trying. Going to give it another go tomorrow what do you guys think?

been searching forums also is there anything electrical i could of knocked that's causing it not to start? if so i'll check in the morning

I'm running a t28 at the moment, anyone on here able to check afr's or know of anywhere near cheshire/wirral that can set them up? i do plan on getting a wideband and tinkering myself at some point. i just want to get her back on the road first, although she seems to run sweet and boost up fine as it is without no funny noises etc

Currently just getting some welding finished up before i put my car in for mot and get her back on the road, first of all i'd like abit more power, i'm at 10 psi at the moment and don't have a clue what the carbs jetted for ive been told 19 :|, it starts  and runs fine pulls nicely on boost, bogs down a little bit at low rpm if your frisky with the throttle but im guessing that's just carbs, it's totally drivable though. i've also got a shitty group a carb as far as i'm aware, should i just stick at 10 psi till i get a wideband or are there any other ways to get more power without risk of damaging engine? also i don't suppose when i've got it on the road if anyone feels like coming down and giving my 5 a little check over, would be very appreciated and would pay.
