Engine work - completed

Recommended Posts

Hi, as it's the beginning of the "off season" I decided to get some done to work done to my old pinto engine so I can focus on some of the other stuff. The cam bearing was quite noisy and the engine was feeling very tired... so I fitted the following:

Kent gts1 cam kit

Dual Weber 45 DCOE (yes I know it should have been bike carbs) 

New water hoses

Skimmed the head and case. 

New gaskets etc.  

Accuspark ignition 

Electronic fuel pump 


The result so far is much better idle and it revs very well. I am going to run it in over the next couple of months and then have it dynoed but I thought I would try and start a thread show casing what work everyone gets up to while it's a little colder

And so the work continues... changing out my square headlights for smaller 4 inch polished chrome ones. 

Posted a couple of before and after pics
