Fixed it! Float was stuck under tickler valve. The ‘fix’ was more of a sort of ‘hit it with something’ job. I think we all know who’d have been good at that. Weird though: who’d expect a sixty year old British bike to go wrong?

    • There's a small, spring loaded button on top of the float chamber of many older carbs. If you 'tickle' it by pressing it down a couple of times, it holds down the float and floods the carb which helps you start the engine. Very old-school...
