  5. Floppy automatic transmission shift lever

    Hi - I have a TP Magna sedan with an auto transmission. The shift lever/column is very loose. Having removed the centre console, I can see what appears to be a bolt through the lever base, but it seems to be very loose. Has anyone else had this problem, and can you suggest a fix for it?

  17. TN Magna flooding

    Hi All, I have a TN Magna carby model which floods after you turn it off and it sits for 10-20 minutes. If you push the foot to the floor it also chokes. Put a carby kit through it, but a carby guy said it could be a blocked pipe and that it was a back pressure flood. Anyone experienced this?...

  20. Carby TP hard to start

    Until two weeks ago normal cold starting was 2 pushes on the pedal and away we went. Now, if the car is not started for a couple of days it needs 10 to 15 seconds cranking before it fires. Once started it runs quite normally. Three questions: 1. Do the plastic carby bowls crack after long usage...
