    Performance drop

    It’s got a Weber 32/36 carb I try and get a pic up of both dyno tests running wise it seems to get hot now and runs bit lumpy but was told that’s the cam the fr32 runs that way driving it don’t seem as smooth as it was with old set up was told to get a 38 dgas put on which would give it a bit more starting seems a problem now takes a while to start when cold and hot

    Performance drop

    Hi all a little story about my car I brought my exmo 3 yrs ago had it for a year but hardly drove it at the time I brought it the head was standard with a Kent fr30 cam on it and it drove lovely at the end of 2016 I had the head swapped for an injection head with a Kent fr32 cam put on its a pinto 2.1 now the car has stood in the garage for 2yrs turning over every so often this yr I got it mot’d and all the rest got it rolling rd tuned and to came back at 96 at the flywheel can’t remember what it was at the wheels anyway I checked the old print out of when it was last dyno tested and for some reason it was loads better with the old head on any ideas cheers Del

    Run on

    Its only really started doing it today when I put it back in the garage after a hard run it is booked in next sat for rolling rd and tune up to me it’s never run right since it had the fast rd cam put on and the injection head I don’t think it was ever really set up properly that was 2 yrs ago and sat in the garage for 2 yrs so not really took it out for a good run until I got mot done

    shortend sump

    hi all i know this has been asked god knows how many times but how much oil needs to go in as i am going to do an oil change but i cant tell how much oil will be in the sump as i have pulled the dipstick out to check the oil and looks like the previous owner has cut the end off with the min and max markers and just left with the wire i know the old pinto engine held 3.75lts with orignal sump pan any ideas or advice
  12. Thanks richyb66 I give it a go and see how it goes
  13. Had mot yesterday and tester fails it on the emissions and the drivers seat as there was too much flex in the floor seat moved side to side a lot when it was up on the ramp I noticed it was just bolted at the back though the floor if I put 100 mm plates on and bolts in the front will this stiffen the floor up or was thinking angle iron running across the back and across the front will that work
