Good work dude, thats comin along nicely!

harveys right, usually on race engines they swap out hydraulic tappets for solid lifters (better valve control/less bounce etc: scratch )

On dub engines its probably done to shut the rattly f*ckers up!! lol!

Gearbox, axle tubes and rear hubs/bearing are all bolted in handbrake cable fitted, rear brakes adjusted and bled and clutch cable fitted.

Just need to wrap and fit the exhaust, clean and fit the carbs, fit the twin port fan to the alternator and fit the alternator, make the flame thrower HT leads up, fit the tin ware then bolt it all in Cool Cool

Well that didn't happen had a few probs through the day but it's in and running now and sounds pretty good.

Had it running on the drive for about 20mins while talking to Carl and it just died didn't splutter or anything so thought it must be electrical while checking out the electrics the dizzy started to smoke big time electronic ign is now burnt out so chucked points in and it runs again but now have lost the brake peddle and couldn't be arsed to look at it may be tomorrow..


But i did open the safaris wnem i turned it round on the drive Cool

Well well i bled the whole brake system and they work fine now, so i took her down the road and i think the 009 dizzy that a MATE lent me doesn't seam to be advancing correctly so it sometimes it splutters and backfires when you boot it. So i'll be ordering a new electronic ignition and whack it in the old dizzy and hope that works..

lol! lol! Still and the ass end out though lol! lol!

All probs sorted out now took her out for a good blast and all seems pretty good..

Popped to Andy's house and on the way i thought i give it some in first and second with abit of arse end action through some speed calming shevrons (30mph) Wink then as i straightened i saw a high vis jacket then the police car then the speed gun affraid affraid..


And on the way back he stopped me this time i was only doing 20-25mph all he said was you only have one headlight Wink . He didn't say anything about no tax disk, no rear bumper, no rear valance, engine lid wont shut just flaps in the wind and the mondo sticking out a good half a foot lol! lol!..

He ask what it was like to drive something old and slow i just said you get used to it geek Then booted it off up the hill lol! lol!

I'll see if i can find them i don't use them anymore cos Frizz knows whats expected of her now.

Last year wheels and drop spindles.
And the year before was wheels.

She loves me really or does she do it to shut me up
