I hope the Big Red was in your handbag - just in case?

This doesn't happen very often but I've got minor niggles. My internet/ phone provider & my employer are giving me a vexing dose of the runny bums. I can feel parts of brain grinding together. Actually I think that's my teeth. I won't bore you with details, I think I'd end up smashing the pc keyboard if I elaborate. Anyway, you all know what it's like dealing with bozo's such as these.

I'm continuing to enjoy the joys of owning an older vehicle. I have known for a while that the carb is getting worn and also the distributor was past it's best. I have gradually saved up and got a refurbed carb and and new distributor. I eventually got these fitted and the van runs a lot better - smoother acceleration, not as jerky etc. :D
But it's running too rich - and no matter what I do to adjust the carb I can't seem to cure it. I'm beginning to thing that there is also another underliying problem as it only seems too rich on cylinder 3 & 4, judging by the spark plugs. So now I am frequenting the VW forums asking further questions about tuning. Everyone has an opinion on how to tune the carb, but no-one seems to give any ideas as to why only 2 cylinder are affected. :roll:

It's getting to the point where I may have to do the unthinkable and take it to a garage! :shock:

Mr Dotsie chased up a delivery today that we were expecting a few days ago, turns out it was delivered to a completely different "Dotsie Street". Genius :roll: This is what postcodes are for! Put it in your bloody satnav!

So far, getting a bit fobbed off. They'd better sort it before I unleash the handbag, that's all I can say :evil:
