Mmm I am thinking that a full strip down is on the cards.

A bit more rust than I was hoping.

As it runs and I have no real date to have it running I may as well do it right.

very good question. when it was on the rollers they said it was a very good 1380 motor.

 

I then told them thanks but it is a 1293.

 

as to figures I don't really use them as it was often used by tuners to get more customers. I just looked at did a change get more numbers on the same RR.

 

1/4 mile times of 15.01 maxing out on the revs and a windscreen covered in fuel. change the gearing and it would go faster but not what the build was for.
