    That was my first thought to be honest. But will definitely check timing etc too

    Seems to be when hot and cold.. Not too worried as the engine is fairly cammy.. It will be off when it’s road worthy to get set up, just wanted to stop it spitting out onto the inner wing paint whilst in the workshop.

    Ah I’ll take another look at the timing and see. The engine was completely rebuilt and only started a handful of times it starts fine and ticks over well just with the odd spit back..

    So works stalled on the Escort for the moment mainly due to work commitments and the DVLA taking an age to sort out my V5. The windscreen trims were finished along with boot lock and door locks. I have a small leak on the water pump which I can’t cure! So looks like a new one is in order.. £10 a litre I can’t afford to loose to much waterless coolant. I started it up today just to make sure it’s getting a turnover regularly. I’m getting a fair bit of spitting back through the carbs.. anyone else had experience of this? I’m assuming perhaps idling jets? I will have it set up properly when it’s on the road but just wondered if there was a cure that anybody knows?

    I went to my fathers yesterday to help with welding up one of his Healey projects and came across some old posters I used to have up in the garage!! Interesting to see some of the prices on the rear also.. and the Asbestos sheets that were for sale from Burtons!![emoji51] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
