Total rubbish! Hope you’ve emailed them demanding a refund! A negative attitude (you’ll have to send that back first) might tend to support the theory I’ve seen put forward that they send their c

Hello, Well I might be on the move (Foward I hope) again as my son has machined the pistons (photo). As can be seen from the first couple of photo's (in this post) how the bore ends up after a 77.5mm

Great pics

those valves are close do they share seats !?

(you can tell I’m no engineer !!)

Not exactly..... but they’ll be damn close in the middle. 

They are pretty close as standard, but those are bigger than standard.

Hello, I replied to TRTOM2498EFI but must have pushed the wrong button!  So will try again... The picture is the reason for my short non attendance . Wife's 3A (since '71) used for son no.4's wedding.It bought the bride and 2 flower girls to the cliff top Pacific Ocean wedding site.  The valves are Datsun 200B cut to length 38mm in, 32m ex, with Nissan chmo spring retainers (the engine man that is doing some of the machining got them). Will be back soon with more progress... Regards, Michael

Amen to that.  I think Australia's chances of this are above average.  UK chances well below......

Dick Heads I see driving to other areas so they can drink in a pub!!!!!!

I know Nick you think Boris is a Joke(and maybe you are right?) but all I see is all the ones not in power slanging them off but not giving a complete plan?

Still what do I know ?

Hello, Will be altering the home made airbox to fit some ram tubes inside and the 3"flexible tube at the front goes to a K&N filter beside the radiator.  The manifold is a later model modified one.  The rocker cover (and PI motor) will be changed for the originals. If that does not work than the fuel injection will be tried. Regards, Michael.
