Mark, thanks for the vacuum drawing.  I'll bring it along with the factory shop manual when I go back to the referee.  Greg, thanks for the reference to the air pump diagram.  I'll see if I can dig up a copy between now and next week.

Yesterday I stopped by Viking Motorsports in Costa Mesa to check them out.  I was thinking that perhaps I should let them have a look at the engine since I am the only one to have touched it since I took it to Steve Pike back in 2001.  Currently it runs OK with a bit of a stumble here and there.  Most of this could probably be eliminate with a careful adjustment of the mixture and elimination of any vacuum leaks.  I figured that Viking Motorsports could do that fairly easily and at the same time throw a charge into the AC system.  It would be nice to have AC in that car again.

I hope to get the car back to the referee next week and then be at the Sandy Eggo British Car day on Sunday, October 1.
