Gorgeous but not happy

Gorgeous but not happy - that's BRP for certain.

I have been helping out on Club Triumph's Historic Counties Run by putting up a code board outside Harewood Hill Climb course.

This was a great reason to give BRP a 70 mile run but it was not at all happy, misfiring etc although occasionally I got a glimpse of what a Sprint engine can do.

I altered the timing by moving the distributor a few times but never got it right and then on the way back the temperature went way high. I had to stop and leave the bonnet up for 10 minutes then drive with the heater blower on as well as the electric rad fan.

Finally got the car home but I'll be using the Audi tomorrow to fetch the code board back!
