I'm new to the list, having just purchased a '75 Midget a few months back.
I've putzed with the car for a bit and have a few questions:
1. Is this the right list for rubber bumper Midget 1500's ?
2. The car came with a Lucas 25D distributor mounted on it. Is this
standard for the '75 Midgets brought into Canada? (I have a '76 BL Manual
and it makes no mention of anything but electronic ignition.). Would the
point gap and plugs be the same as the '74?
3. I have had trouble getting the car to idle slow enough. I rerouted the
piping on the carbon canister as shown in the '76 manual, but still idles
fast. Checked the choke and no change. I think I have it narrowed down to
lack of orifices at the carburetor purge pipe and the carbon canister (too
much air bypassing the carb damper) - anyone know the diameter of the
orifices so I can make a couple? Also, where does the pipe into the back of
the filter housing go to (no mention of a connection to there in the '76
4. The car leans ever so slightly to the left - how best to check if I need
to replace the front springs or the rear springs?
That's about it for now (more to come I am sure!).
