Traveller history XLL 428G

Hi all, I would like to trace the history of my traveller XLL 428G which I acquired from the Chesterfield area, the previous owner had it 9 years and apparently purchased it from the Derby area. However I think the plate is a London one, does anybody know any history of the car or how I could find o...

Hi Cam,

Yes the needle you recommended seems to have done the job.

Did you get the pictures of the car I sent you ? only the first time I sent them I got a failed delivery report.

Regards,

Leafie :D

Fitted the AAM needle today and weakened the mixture as advised by burlens. Did 60 miles today on mix of open road and traffic went like a dream, cutting out problem and running on appear to be cured.

Thanks to everybody for the advice.

But if the only problem is cutting out when slowing down - is the idle speed maybe a bit too slow ? Just for interest - what needle is in the carb as standard ? The needle fitted to the carb originally is an ADG but as the previous owner fitted the carb I have no way of knowing if the needle is tha...

Thanks for the info, the AAM needle CAM advised is on the way from Burlen who said it sounded good to them, so I will let you know how it goes.

Thanks all,

Leafie :D

I ran a HS4 on a 1098 with a large bore exhaust and K&N air filter with no problems. It ran great. The needle I used was the AAM. With your larger bore exhaust and HS4 carb, the AAM needle should be pretty close. What air filter are you using? Thanks cam, It's fitted with the standard air filter, d...

Hi all, Back from hols, carb is a HS4 FZX 1189 as fitted to the 1300 marina. Weakened the mixture until plugs are a light brown, still cuts out so turned two flats richer on the mix but still cuts out when lifting off the accelerator and coming to a stop. Met a retired Morris Mechanic on holiday he ...

Thanks everybody, The exhaust is a twin box stainless steel one with a larger bore, so changing all that could get expensive so I think making the existing carb work is a better bet. The fast idle is a cross screw head located at about 10 o'clock looking at the carb from the front of the car if this...

Thanks Cam,

I will have a look in the daylight, but going away early tomorrow so I will have a look when I get back on Saturday. Problem with dumping the marina carb is the exhaust manifold was also changed to suite the carb.

Thanks,

Leafie.

Thanks for all the help

The carb was changed by the previous owner so I don’t know if he changed the needle.

Cam asked Which carb it is? HS4, HIF44?

How do I tell the difference between the two.

Thanks,

Leafie

Cutting out / running on

Hi, Hope somebody can help, my newly acquired traveller is a 1968 with a 1098 cc engine and unleaded head, it was fitted with a marina carb by the last owner apparently to improve the throttle response. A problem arose in that the plugs were getting blackened and causing a miss fire so a friend adju...
