won't get my car on road till end of the month, but let you know anyway.
Totally different cams really. SW5 is for smooth application of power throughout the rev range, whereas sw10 is basically a road legal rally cam. All the power is specifically between 2500rpm and 7500rpm.

I'm also considering roller rockers and a single 45 for 120bhp but that can wait till I am not as poor as S Club 7

Anyone with a weber 45 for sale please let me know. No Silly prices please they aren't worth that much....

...and no weber haven't folded, making them rarer. One of there manufacturing plants has just shut down that's all.

Went for a drive in it today. Couple more niggles for swifty to sort out:
Dash pot is sticking so have a slight flat spot. New switch needed because oil comes on too early.

Hope to pick it up on tuesday

I had to take them in the dark but you can see all the bits. Lucas coil, Alloy four core rad, modified rocker cover so you can get the bonnet on:

Engine cuts out in low revs.

Please see me thread in technical section for help
