Brug has been unwell, misfiring and poping around the slow running RPM. After sevral hours with engineering speacialists, the carb was fully overhauled. It then ran fine after fitting it 2 days ago.. I set off today in foul weather to Turweston but ended up at Bister due to weather. Had lunch with a close friend but keeping an eye on the weather... Fired up Brug and immeadiatly noticed the misfire again!! I set off and limped back to Ranston feeling utterly P'...sed off! Back to sqauare one... Could I have two tired Mags?

Not a good day, I describe the conditions!
