Ari, the silencer that you replaced now was that the same one you replaced after the gariep nationals?

ok............ so I have moved back to Pretoria after 8 years in the Eastern Cape

1150km at 9.86 km/l not bad..

Lada drove great up but broke the next time i took her for a drive...... thats life, just grateful it wasnt 20 km and a week earlier on the open road with curfews at 20:00......

traced it to a fuel issue and no fuel in the carb, tried pumping the hand pump but to no effect, opened the inspection cover under the back seat to visually check the tank as gauges can lie.... 3/4 tank.....

ok replaced the filter, no effect......... opened the top of the pump, found it............ the one way valve had popped out.

Once that was replaced with a pump repair kit that took me 2hrs to find in the garage and 3 hrs to change the 2x one way valves... all fixed and happily running again.

My Lada runs on grace from God, and breaks due to my failings.
