So, Pyro recommends you squeeze the hose to see if it is solid and not soft........

Are you going to enlighten me as to where this hose is Mr Grav?

She ran fine this morning of course, but the idle speed is a tad low

There are two hoses that go from your fuel tap to the carbs. The large diameter one is the fuel hose and the small diameter one is the vacuum hose.

Ta, it was one of those Andy got on the wrong hole.

Will check them over the weekend if there is a break in the wet stuff for 5 minutes!
