MG TD TF 1500 - Engine down on power

Yesterday was the UK's classic and vintage "Drive it day" commonly known as "use it or lose it day"
Our local Octagon group went on a 200 mile trip around Snowdonia in N Wales.
One of the group got separated and made their own way home. When I got back I phoned to make sure they were OK. His engine had lost most of its power so struggled home . When he checked 1&2 were sooty and 3&4 weak, the clamp on the throttle shaft had slacked off so he had a single carb TD. Now fixed.
Apart from the TD owner we all had a great day.
I managed 34MPG (Imp) despite some stiff climbs and some fast driving.
