carb icing tends not to be an issue on injection.

I know its not a big problem but can occur The main types of icing fall into three catagories.

 

1. Impact Ice. This is formed by the impact of moist air at temperatures between -10°C and 0°C on air scoops, throttle plates, heat valves, etc. It usually forms whith visible moisture such as rain, snow, sleet. Most rapid accumulation can be anticipated at -4°C. This type of icing can affect fuel injection systems as well as carburettor systems and is also the main type of icing hazard for turbocharged engines.

 

2. Fuel Ice. This forms at, and downstream from, the point that fuel is introduced into the ITB or carburettor when the moisture content of the air freezes as a result of the cooling caused by fuel vaporisation.

 

3. Throttle Ice. This is the most common and causes the most problems. It is formed at or near a partly closed throttle valve (sometimes called the “butterfly valve”). The water vapour in the induction air condenses and freezes due to the venturi effect cooling the air as it passes the throttle valve. Since the temperature drop is usually around 3°C, the optimum temperature for forming throttle ice is between 0°C to +3°C although a combination of fuel and throttle ice could occur at higher ambient temperatures.

Hi craig, 

 

Hows the engine running now? faced with my own fair share of issues again. 

which has ended up with the engine coming back out, im starting again. full strip down and rebuild.  :ohno:

 

seems as though the thrust washers have gone. so the engine needed to come out anyway. So ive decided im going to strip it completey, and check over everything as i bought it as a second hand engine, so pistons, con rods, cams, all seals and gaskets etc etc. Its an excuse to buy some more shiny bits i suppose also. 

 

I did manage to get about 35 miles out of the car before it was dead again though. haha

Oh sorry to hear!

 

I haven't really had the chance to road test it. but certainly looks like it is now oil tight,

Cannot believe the bad luck you've had with this Craig. Fingers crossed this is it. The garage is looking great!
