A sort of book review.
Page 138 – Removing manifold and carburettor.
“The carburettor can now be withdrawn from its corner. This, however, after you have tried for a little time, you will declare to be impossible. But the thing can be done: I have done it; so go on trying and presently the carburettor will quite unexpectedly creep out into freedom. The secret lies in getting the left hand (or back) end of the manifold out first – then the carburettor – then the right hand (or front) end but all the time the contraption will want humouring by twisting and turning.”
They don’t write service instructions like that anymore!
