We have hopefully cured the running issues on our 1965 Aston Martin DB5. To begin with the car was unable to start so we have replaced the faulty fuel pump, rewired the feed for the fuel pump. We have replaced the faulty solonoid which was causing a short on the fuel pump.

The car now starts as it should be is not running very nicely. We have re-balanced the carbs, fitted new spark plugs and run a compression test. the results showed a jetting problem in the 3rd carburettor. Now having worked to resolve the problem the car is running beautifully and able to return home.
