well hello there

Post by Tomdiddlybomb » 25 Sep 2015 06:01 pm

Thought I'd introduce myself, been lurking on here for ages and finally made an account.
I'm Tom as you may have guessed, I've got a 340gl 1.7 (catalyzer but with a new exhaust with no cat...) it was my first car but is off the road at the moment awaiting welding
I've got a month to get it welded and get it running with hopefully a few more horses and a bit more reliability than it had when it was on the road before, already rebuilt the carb and fitted a new fuel pump and cleaned and gapped the plugs. The car has a few niggling issues I'm hoping to pick people's brains about
currently driving a 740 turbo with the boost turned up a wee bit (gonna miss the power, but it's just not as fun as the 340 was)
anyway this seems to be the place to learn more about the 340 so here I am
