Hi guys 

Ive just rebuilt my grand fathers d7 he had from new in 1959 and aint run since 1964 

I have run it a little now and when i followed the instructions manual on timing it run a little lumpy so i slakend the points gap a little and it runs 

Is there any thing that could cause it? And will it be ok when its on the road

Hi N D

Look at this thread. ** Please log in to view **   Quite comprehensive.

Lots of members have had this issue and needed to alter their points gaps
