Misfire Solved

Post by kiwi »

I did not really notice this whilst driving and the performance of the BX was not even dented. But whilst idling I noticed a misfire with the put put put from the exhaust.

Investigation found a broken spark lead probably as a result of changing my spark plugs recently because the terminal in the sleeve was attached to the plug the result being intermitant sparking.

Luckly had one in the donor 16 in good condition so swaped it over and problem solved.

Whats funny is the 16 is now running on 3 cylinders and no plug spark and there is no noticable performance problems. Just proves how good the BX runs.
