Post Re: AZL 1957
The 57 was running slightly rough this week and it started a bit slow. I ran out of petrol again this morning and emptied the 5L jerrycan with fresh fuel in the tank. Car started again like new and did run much better. So i think the petrol had deteriorated a bit in the tank this long hot summer. ??

It's raining again today. My test with WD40 on the ventflap fixtures did work partially. Before leaking at all screws now only on 2. Have to wait till it's dry to have a go at it. For the time being i will tinker a bit with my old clocks and watches.

I would think take it apart and apply clear windscreen sealant may work.

This morning i drove to work and thought the 57 didn't pull very well. When i got out i was almost blown away. So it was the head wind....
