    I'm thinking that now how to cure it? I've found the fuel mix screw on the carb just need to know which way to turn it (it's that irritating one behind the spring cap) is it clockwise to richen and counter clock wise to weaken or the other way round ? I've got a new set of points and...

    new issue K10 not starting

    Done all that. Only thing I'm finding is the coil is getting extremely hot guessing it's arcing between the two windings. I'm going to retorque the head bolts again even though they've been checked twice at 69nm. Valves have been done 25 inlet 30 exhaust when hot. Now yesterday it ran ok until...

    is the 988cc engine in the K10 interferance

    I'm considering another engine, the only difference I can see between the early 1.0 and the early 1.2 is the 1.2 seems to have electronic ignition where the 1.0 has non electronic. I can get a complete 1.0 for £98 with a 3 month warranty (ok not brilliant but it would do summer) Charlotte

    is the 988cc engine in the K10 interferance

    Nope Dizzy isn't loose. I'm thinking timing too. It had new points two weeks ago, it's got a new timing belt too. and turns on a rachet without any resistance. Charlotte (keep the suggestions coming I'm sure you'll figure it out as I'm naff with electric.)

    is the 988cc engine in the K10 interferance

    How would you suggest I test from a bent valve? Tomorrow I'm taking all the plugs out to see if I can see any damage to a piston. The engine spins freely on the starter, there are no noises coming from the engine which I would associate with a bent/dropped valve and all 8 rockers move as they...
