Fungus Head

Collected the head for Fungus and its very shiny, I have to give it a lick of paint to match the engine, but it has come up a treat. In other news I took the HA back up to the paint shop from where I collected it on Friday to...

Mid week work

I had today off (will in fact the rest of the week) and decided that I would strip down the engine from the HB and get the block up to the workshop for a light hone and to drill out the brass water tap, as that was already broken in...

Sunday Funday

Today I took some time to look at the engine from the green HB, all looks very good and all bar two bolts were easy to undo. I have taken one main and one big end off , and the shell ends are like new at STD size, so nothing...

Ready for another week

Car is now packed, one head to lap valves in and rebuild (you can tell I am getting lazy as I am giving it to the workshop to do)  I just need to find some appropriate collet holders (they are somewhere in the shed LOL). Also in the car is...

Carb me up

The solex carb I took off the old blue scrap HA is now fitted to Marvin, it seems better than the Weber that was on the car, it still needs setting up, but from just putting it on the car and driving off its feels as good as the Weber...

Blue engines always tricky

Well that 1159cc blue engine is a real mixture of things, its got 1256cc crank and con rods which is really annoying, as I had a nice STD 1159cc crank and got new bearings, I fitted it all to find the conrods hit the side of the block!!! BUGGER the...
