Little Log Cabin

Our trek to Hastings took some time, but we made it safe and sound... the ride back however was much more eventful. We had problems when we got to the show with the Ford Staff Car, and couldn't get the vehicle started. We got some help at the show, pulled the carb apart and found that there was some debris in the float bowl. We cleaned out the bowl, put it all back together, tweaked the idle and she ran like a dream. Everything went well at the show, but just over the Hastings Bridge, the Staff car ran rough and died. Attempts to revive it proved fruitless, as something in the fuel system was coming apart and almost instantly clogging the carb. We managed to tow the car home using Bob Koelbl's truck and tow strap. Thanks Bob! Other than that, it was a great time! Now, it's time to work on the car...
