Well I’ve been slowly working my way around Harvey, it now has an mot, and I’m running it round locally to get it used to being run again after years off the road.

The moustache, came with the car, somewhere down the line it’s picked up a lot of nice bits, like the rear windows that open.

Thank you everyone for the kind words, it’s actually very scruffy, which is how I like my cars, otherwise I’d never use them.

But as dog transport with its super heater I can’t wait till winter again.

Well had a bit of an issue with Harvey this week, came home with Judith and it started spluttering and misfiring, my immediate thought was fuel, as the tank is a little grungy so whipped the carb top off cleaned all the jets and orifices to no avail, still not right. Checked ignition, points seemed clean. But tidied them up and gapped them, better but still not right, so swapped coil for a spare, no difference. So swapped complete distributor as I didn’t have a spare set of points and the dizzies are different. Wallah back as smooth as a button. Driving beautifully again.

I should be ready now for the drive up to Derby with the Renault owners club on Sunday.
