Re: Spark plug gap for 2.1 DJ?

Depends on the plugs. And the coil. Could be 0.8mm, or 1mm, or triples are preset. 0.7mm is right for a DG, unless it's not.

Spark plug gap for 2.1 DJ?

Hi guys, my Doka isn’t starting well, despite turning over strongly and there being fuel. I have a set of new plugs and leads to fit, as I have no idea how long they’ve been on. Question: what is the correct plug gap please?

Re: Anyone know this Syncro

So my mate bought it.... and ended up bringing it home on an RAC van. :( The battery light came on and the temp gauge went full scale. It appears that the aux belt came off and he boiled the coolant. Possibly wrecked his cylinder head. Not a great start to Syncros, but he’s still inexplicably excite...

Shaun, joints usually click/clunk under load rather than braking.

That’s something that’s worrying me too. But I can’t think what else it can be.
