..until somebody loses an eye.

I went for a lovely drive on Sunday. Over 2 hours and probably 150km.

Until the car started to run horribly roughly and eventually died.

At least the tow truck was a good colour.

Dial A Tow

Inspection revealed that the Pertronics igniter unit in the distributor had "failed to proceed". This was the only part of the ignition that had come with the car that I had not replaced.

Once replaced the car started well, but there was now a horrible noise from within the bell housing.

Dead clutch.  Boo.

Ah well.  Engine out time.

Will keep you posted.
