    Throttle linkage HIF 6 Carbs

    Thanks for the advice everyone. Managed it in the end, it was the seal cap on the starter spindle which was fouling the spring, didn't notice this at first, all sorted. Both carbs done.

    Engine out tasks?

    Hopefully will have out in a few weeks and see what's what. Don't know the condition/history of the engine really. Had the car for a few years now and took it off the road due to low oil pressure and never got round to sorting it.
