I bought my 5a earlier this year and couldn't get it to run properly either, looking at the pictures it had a similar system to yours, it kept misfir...

Finally got my 5a out for a run

Thanks for all the advice wont worry about the fan now and will have another tinker with the carb as the idle is a bit rough until it gets warm, the choke has been converted to a manual and seems to be working fine. I might try some hotter plugs if they still come out sooty, I have the 3 prong thing...

SE5A wiring

Thanks for the info, I assumed it was the stabilizer as the dark green is to the fuse box and the other went to the loom into the car, it was the red wire that threw me as it seems to be in the loom in the engine bay. Always hard to sort these things out when extra bits have been added to the wiring...

SE5A Transmission fluid leak.

I have noticed that some fluid is leaking form the auto box on my 1974 5a. I've wiped everything down and i think its coming from the rear oil seal, can this be changed in situ or do I have to take the engine and box out.
Thanks

Some work has been done previously as there are a couple of relays that seem to have been added, possibly for th...
