Looks very nice. It inspires me to head out to the garage and do something with the shrapnel laying under the bench.Test start accomplished. It'a a lovely engine (thanks Molnar), really smooth. Only air in tyres and petrol in tank (not the opposite). It's a very easy starting machine. As an old racer explained it, compression ratio should be where it gives lot of power and is easy to start. In the old days when engine was off when the flag was dropped. Seems the float bowl change worked. Now load everything in the van. Practise on track sunday
I’m assuming there are modern bits lurking inside that mag. Wonder if they help with the starting, although nothing wrong with a old one in proper working condition (other than price). Good luck at the track. Perhaps a smidgin of R40 just to add to the religious experience.
