It's running too rich if you can't put the choke on.
very nice !!!For price of a set of plugs stick a new set in!.
Good to hear it's running, not far off now.
RD500 for me today, guess what it was in for (yes more bloomin carb rebuilds!).
I did another RD500 a couple of years ago and genuinely didn't think I'd ever have another on the bench.

You haven't. Ford introduced sync on the mk 2 which was called sync 1. Sync 2 came out a few years later replaced with sync 3. Sync 2 and 3 have an 8" touchscreen.Hiya smartguy what is a "sync 2" ? I don't think I've got "sync 1" whatever that is! Kiethmac glad to hear GSX good, hope you had nice test ride, I suppose for you working on old (and new) stuff may have lost its novelty by now, I have kicked my arse for such a stupid mistake and making assumptions when I don't know what I'm doing ( at least chemically), BTW what is a powershift? Sounds like some sort of automatic transmission, also BTW did sync2 get "solved "?
Hi Cookieman. Looking at your picture I bet you can't wait for next week for hairdressers to open lol.Good evening smartguy, so sync1/2/3 is "in car infotainment "? What about " powershift "?
If your bluetooth ins't working it may just require a new module. Not sure how the mk1 works tbh.Thanks for that smartguy ,I have often seen the words bandied about and wondered what they meant, now I know, yeah I've seen some of kiethmacs posts and thought "im glad I don't have that " can you see what I mean about modern tech, I'm glad mine is low tech, less to go wrong and easier to fix, the only thing not working on mine is the bluetooth, see what I mean about hi tech! As you have read I can't even handle low tech LOL!
