#341914 Midlands Run To Wales 7Th To 9Th August 2015

Here are a few likes of video i took over the weekend:


Derek's mate - Think he was asking if you like Nescafe coffee? (other coffee brands are available)


Mini Adventure (for Trev & Suzanne), awesome little car


Nice day for a hat? - say no more!



Andy Footage - edited out anything that would get him into trouble and this is whats left.



Tunnels - sounds not great, but make 'brum, brum' noises and you get the feeling

Thanks to Richy and Jackie for another awesome weekend. You never fail to put on a great weekend, even got the weather right, what more can you ask for except a bit less scrumpy.

Downloaded all the video and there is about 10 seconds of footage of Andy can that can be used! Will edit the rest out.

Will gets some short clips up on utube soon.

Looking forward to next year already.

I bought an Accuspark stealth blackbox a while back with the view to upgrade the standard ignition amplifier system on the pinto.

Never got round to fitting the blackbox but then a few weeks ago the pinto developed a serious misfire. So time to swap to the blackbox.

Fitting the locked out dizzy was straight forward enough and the wiring for the blackbox is nice and simple too. Except when I tried to connect the blackbox to the laptop nothing? Called accuspark technical who gave a few ideas to try and still no joy.

The query then got escalated to Tony the owner. He suspected that something was faulty inside the blackbox so sent out a new blackbox.

Arrived this morning, connected to the laptop and hey presto! Worked first time.

Just wanted to show that good customer service exists and Steve Walford who did the rolling road for me said for the money it was ideal.

Just need to get it back to Steve to fine tune the map, just any excuse to go play on a rolling road!

Check out the product here: http://www.accuspark...uk/Blackbox.htm. Can't recommend Tony and his team enough based on my experiences.

Well, round 2 on the rollers after sorting out the fuel pump to a bigger pump to supply more fuel and changing to a accuspark dizzy as the original amplifier was giving a misfire.

All in all only an hour to get sorted and turned out 167bhp at the fly.

Not bad for an engine that's nearly as old as me!

Bring on The Wales trip.

Hi Andi,

What day is everyone going? if Sunday can i still come along or have i left it too late?

Are you having a meet up and then going as a convoy, maybe a breakfast at Malt Shovel again?

Jcc rally on eBay do the higher flow facet for 26 quid! Would save you the hassle. Not much help now you have splashed out already though. On the plus side you'll be good for a few more horses if you ever upgrade

Yer, like you say its there to future proof it!

#333278 Breakfast Meet Up

Posted by Thrashed on 29 April 2015 - 10:41 PM

Hi all

Following the Midlands area meet tonight, a few of us are planning to meet at the malt shovel early for the all you can eat breakfast on Sunday before heading to Stoneleigh.

Breakfast starts at 8am! And then carry on as arranged by Richy.

See you bright and breezy.

167 on a pinto?
Mr T, what have you done to its internals


BISCA F2 bottom end, Injection head ported and polished, valve seats and FR32 cam and springs, Falpro head gasket and Vernier pulley. Standard ignition and ZX6r bike carbs, with jets now at 1.4.

Nothing major really, just seems like all the right parts have come together nicely!

#332422 Rolling Road

Sorry. In all the excitement I knew the figures!

First run when it tried to jump out the rollers was 155bhp and 155 torque. 2nd run was 167bhp and 153 torque but the graph was showing a very obvious fuel drop at about 5500rpm. I run zX6r carbs and originally was 1.3 jet, drilled out to 1.4. Might need a bit more once new fuel pump is in and should get a few more bhp and torque. Will keep you posted

That's a good point Andi. I have no idea how far my car goes on a tank of fuel! It has alway either broken down or had a fuel pipe come off first! This trip could be fun!!
