Notes:
Various leaks, but doesn't seem too bad for an old car!
Engine will stall on turns after 10-50 minute break after being warm - carb warmup create gas bubble?
Dwell Adjustment in 2013 made big difference in loss of power under load!!!
Front left brake has clicking noise - this is OK - just pad a bit loose
Brakes pulsate on heavy braking (especially downhill) - should get fixed
