    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

    Fuel gauge

    Hi all just a little question I got some new dials a couple yrs back decided to make new dash and fit them all is ok apart from the fuel gauge it reads empty when full and full when empty so working in reverse does this really matter long as I know what it’s reading or will it do it any harm cheers Del

    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
