Pulled the engine out today, 1st time ive ever done it & on me own too!!

Turns out its an HO code engine (1500SP??), should i keep it, rebuild it & build it up using the 1641 bits or swap it for the 1200SP turnkey as was the plan? Neutral

Your opinion is important! lol!

OK a 1641 challenge it is then, what are the rules as regards weight as a rod will be considerably lighter than a full bodied bug, which is much lighter than a bus. Do we have a handicap system??

Is there any limit on what can be done or is it anything you can think of on a 1641?? afro
