the old girl had her annual birthday test and boats a new MOT! hurrah. performed well until I picked dit up after test..started and ran O for 1 min then well down on power .no acceleration .choke made little difference. getting slowly up to speed got a couple of backfires via exhaust and bit of black smoke. after 4-5 mins driving it suddenly found its 'legs' and started driving normally.sheesh .
Hello all. I think I must have a stuck clutch. The clutch was new last April, but has been standing over winter, and now won't go into gear. I tried jumping it with foot on pedal and brake then starting in gear. But nothing still stuck. Tried warming the engine up and depressing pedal with a length of wood and leaving for a while, still nothing.. Does anyone have any other ideas please..
