Rolling Road

100 MPH + On the 1000BHP Rolling Road at Street Racers in Leicester. The torque curve was excellent - rising quickly and staying flat over a very wide rev range, although the BHP was lower than expected. A new / up-rated Camshaft maybe the next step?...........


June 07 - A Piper BP270 Fast Road Cam about to go in.

I fitted this with the engine in the car but still involved removal of numerous components inc water and oil Rads, carbs, inlet manifold, distributor and drive etc. Even the steering rack bolts needed removal to allow clearance for the crank pulley.

Early indications show about 2 seconds improvement 0-60mph and much more willingness to rev.

I was pleased with the cars handling, but the constant high revs were too much for my old engine, on the last lap of the third session no4 big end bearings gave up. The car is off the road for now but during the diy engine re-build I will take the opportunity to make a number of improvements. Details to follow.
