well today the 5 had its mot...................and its gone and passed with no advisories!!!! :D

I had to get a new carb last week as the one I had on was ruined and was overfueling to fook and the mixture screw did absolutley nowt!
 
my dads mate has done an excellent job setting up the new carb and sorting electrics to get her through.

so it now idles at 800-900 rpm - quiet as a mouse...  So have been boosting about all evening - its been too long!! :mrgreen:
