    Cam swap

    I have the Aldron performance electronic distributor without vacuum advance fitted also Lucus gold sports coil can say it is quick above 2000 rpm think it’s just idle that I am more concerned about ts not a smoth idle but was told by the guy that fitted the head a couple years ago that the cam does give a lumpy feel on tick over

    Cam swap

    It’s had new thermostat about2 months ago and it does open up the engine not over heating but does seem to run hot could that be down to the type of cam I got as for the way it runs it’s if it’s running lumpy but had new spark plugs and leads checked timing and that looks ok I know a little about cars but not a great deal just wondering if any one else has the fr32 and hat their experience is with it and how they find it or am I being a bit fussy

    Cam swap

    Hi all after a bit of advice at the moment I have a 2.0 pinto with injection head on and a Kent fr32 cam running on a Weber 32/36 carb ever since I had the head put on with the cam I just feel it’s not running right it’s been Ona rolling rd and tuned but just like the way it runs the engine seems to get hot quick and temp it’s to about 90 and then drops to about 60 to 80 depending on traffic I am very reluctant to take it on a long drive cause I not sure about it was looking at putting the std cam back in and not looking to do a land speed record in it just to be able to enjoy it more any advice on changing the cam back
