Setting the Air/Fuel Mixture with Colortune

Following on from the previous post where I was faffing about with the ignition timing in the hope of getting my new engine running a little better, today I'll be turning my attentions to the air/fuel mixture and trying to get it optimised. To do this, I'll be using my Gunson Colortune kit I bought ages ago, so I'm pretty chuffed that it finally gets it outing.

Ignition Timing

So having built my new engine and getting the car legally roadworthy, now comes the task of making it nicer to drive. If you read the previous post, driving to the MOT garage was awful, the car had no power and didn't want to know at all on hills. To fix this the engine needs tuning up and that starts with the ignition timing, apparently... so I've read!!!

Timing is everything!!
