    Thanks John.
    Looking at mine, the bracket is a loose fit inside, bit will look to see if a nut is fitted.
    Guess you could open up a slot, like the later ones, and add the bent individual bracket and nut.
    I played around with the 2, today, should be working on the 3.
    Discovered only idling on Cyl 1 and 2. that why the motor shook a bit. seems to run ok flat out. Amazing how it runs with one plug lead fitted !!!!
    Started by changing plugs, no change so old ones back in.
    New Leads, no change. old ones back.
    New dissy cap, no change. old one back.
    New rotor, no change, so old one back.
    Lots of movement on dissy bearing, so pulled apart another I had and mixed bits of the ones with wheel adjuster.
    Now wont start. Took notice of rotor and slot, when pulling out old dissy. Put back the same.
    Think its a points problem now. Multi meter not showing as it should. Will put old points back in and see how I go.
    Valves next check.
    Any other suggestions.
    Thanks

    Idling only on a couple of cylinders could be ignition, but equally could be valve seating, or leaks in the intake manifold to head gasket.

    Next project

    Was thinking about my next project, as Gilbert maybe be coming to a close.
    I want to use the S2 in this post. And maybe use the panels from the S3, which are in really good Patina condition.
    And I like the colour.
    I like the lay out of the S2's going even more simple, with a little twist.
    Or I do the Good Chassis LWB Military S2a, adding a hard top.
    O what to do.
    What would you do ????

    Moving the S2, as the S 1 is locked down across the border in Qld.
    How will Gilbert handle a 750kg car trailer and S2 5klms down a quiet flatish road.
    Thanks.

    Given that your towing with a shorty just make sure you balance the load right, not too much on the tow bar, but enough to keep the vehicle stable.
    As for actually pulling, well the 2.25 will do it with ease, especially at sensible speeds. As for stopping, well you should be right given that you have only recently rebuilt your vehicle, so the brakes should be in good order, as hopefully your trailer brakes are as well.
    I have done plenty of towing with all my shorties, no issues at all.

    Good luck.
    Cheers, Mick.
