expat Old girl '95 needs some luv 3 weeks 1 day ago #1

Yes, she's vintage '95 but doesn't purr like she once did 5-7 year ago.
Recently back crossing the Nullabor from Adelaide where she was put through her paces.
Came out firing in the first... but just sputtered and farted from then on in.

Recent owner simply thrashed her at every opportunity requiring a complete rebuild in 2016.

Initial thought was all that was required was a change of colours... hence the chevrons.
But not so.

Along the way a few spark plugs were changed, including a 211 overhaul.

But she's not ticking the same... unfortunately.

Even a retro kit proved incorrect.

Now some are saying she needs a Justin Longmuire, while others are saying a Suma.

Not sure what to do as she's got 6 months up on the blocks, before she's required...

Help needed.

Fit the NO2 system, new tyres and a change to Premium unleaded.

Oh, and wash the windscreen and headlights, the way forward will become clear.
