last monday I wasn't feeling well at all in fact it was frightening to say the least.
I've never felt so weak.spewing up,couldn't get myself up off the floor.
I honestly thought my days was up.
rang son up-came home to find me on the floor spewing not something I want him to see.
ambulance came and found that I have a very low heart rate of 40 when it should be 60/70 bpm.
end up in hospital for three days and a new pacemaker.
so I suppose that was a close call.

You should have checked the timing and replaced the condensers when you last serviced the old machine. It appears that the points may have worn out too.
Hope the new electronic ignition is reliable.
Watch the oil doesn't start to dribble, that may need attention as well. Old seals & gaskets sometimes leak. :wink:

That’s good news John! Glad all was caught in time. I’m sure that was quite a scare for you.

Glad they sorted you quickly, John. All the best for a full and speedy recovery. Hope the new pacemaker has decent squish heads and spannies 8)

the pacemaker only work when my heart rate drop to a certain level.
thats why it has a 10-12 years life span.
thanks for the wishes.

Ah, yes lots of older motors have a little trouble regulating their idle speed. I guess "pacemaker" is another term for an idle speed control valve?
Hope you are ticking over nicely now. You may find it beneficial to give your exhaust a thorough clean through. It should help put less strain on the rest of your system. Make sure you're using good quality fuel without contaminants, that'll make your motor last much longer.
Good luck
