    Default swirl bar fix now in limp mode(was)

    hi to everyone as i am a new member,by the way,great site.had the dreaded swirl bar come off,so looking on here,fixed it with the number plate plastic screw fixings.it ran like a steam train,stopped 2 fill up with diesel,then it went straight in2 limp mode,turned it off/on 3 times,still the same.this morning got some1 to rev it,bar wasn't moving,took it off,which was stuck on solid,revved again and number 3 moved.so sprayed some carb cleaner in the holes of the bar,refitted,no moving again and spanner light has gone out,gonna go 4 a spin in a minute.i know that it will need a trip 2 the garage 4 new manifold,will it be best to have anything else fitted while it's there?
