Rattle developed today in the Grey under load

After a nice day out for a short cruise, and plodding around 50mph in the EK, a slight incline in the road and then a rattle, raised its head under load, not sounding like a normal bearing knock. Under any acceleration whatsoever, the rattle appears, at idle you can barely notice it. I certainly noticed that it was also a bit fluttery under any load, doesn't sound good. I'll get it checked out tomorrow, just a little disappointing as I've only had the ute for a week, and it was getting along pretty well, I had it booked to get it in this week for a solid service and tune and check over.

HT Panno

Came across a nice HT panno this morning but the paint /trim code has me stumped.
A little help would be much appreciated.
I know its a Belmont, 161, glide.
Photo of the tag should be attached - unless I screw it up.

Flat spots and stalling around corners. New weber 38 DGMS

Hi all

Have just installed a new weber 38 DGMS in the premmie. Goes a lot better than the tired old Rochester that was in there previously. Except around corners where it seems to be starved of fuel and occasionally cuts out. Problem partially relieved by closing the choke. Is it the idle mixture? Idle speed sounds about right. Thanks in advance!
