engine will most likely be a stocko blacktop 4a for now, then maybe some poncams and fiddling down the track....
4-2-1 so i can experiment with different length secondaries for shits and giggles. i think for the first set ill cheat and get a burns stainless setup... so they give me all the fancy measurements and the collectors... ill supply the stainless tubing through work if i can... from there play when i can
annnnnnd she rides again. things are underway to get her regoed, then slowly start playing with her. poor old girl is a little worse for wear after sitting in the elements for the better part of 18 months, but hopefully things will turn around now.
happiest moment i have had in a lonnnnngg time. proper legit rego
with an amazing amount of help from old mate aaron, so far she has had a top end freshen up, a new(second hand) radiator, fresh oil and filter, fresh coolant, new thermostat ( it didnt have one lol) it all seems to be running apples. still a few little bits to do. the front wheel bearings could do with a tighten and the idle is a bit fucked at the moment, she stalls everytime you come to a stop if the choke isnt out lol.
also threw some almost the same paint on the guards to make it look a little less suspect to the plod
hit something leaving work. thought it might have put a hole in the muffler. had a look under when i got home. turns out it snapped the exhaust clean off at the manifold and just past the first muffler. so spent the arv doing the most awful gasless welding ever seen. bird shit everywhere. but finally got it. had toi take it back off cut and relocate the flange again lol cos it had twisted somewhat.
no more leaks. fuck i hate that engine. auto is leaking like a 2 dollar hooker.
refurbished head is on the way, small amount of parts on order to complete the engine build. hiopefully exciting things happening soon gents.
