Clean and lubricate the relevant components. 27 Gear selection difficult or impossible Clutch not disengaging fully. See Section 25. Gearchange...

Acceleration poor

12 Weak spark at plug or erratic firing Battery voltage low. In certain conditions low battery charge, especially when coupled with a badly sulphated battery, may result in misfiring. If the battery is in good general condition it should be recharged an old battery suffering from sulphated plates should be renewed. Spark plug fouled, faulty or incorrectly adjusted. See Section 8 or refer to Chapter 3. Spark plug cap or high tension lead shorting. Check the condition of both these items ensuring...
