Project BEAST build

Looks more soot than oil, so a good run and then check the mixture/colour of plugs.

These are pretty tough engines provided they have oil and water in them, so don't fear the worst yet.

Project BEAST build

The old advice is to replace mechanical with electrical

Fan, Ignition and fuel pump.

If you have the rocker covers off you can check cam lift and possibly duration, also presumably it has a steel/alloy cam gear?

CM 2020 what events are folk doing?

Entered ty croes. Just say you are Classic marques. Tracks. Castle Combe is fast and fun, although the July track is short . Abingdon gives a lot of mileage being 2 tracks and is well run, but, one track is just up and down the runway, and pricy for one day. Agree should do wiscombe at least once, i...

Help from new owners & Sprint wannabies please

Just to add to what Craig said. I did an article some years ago "so you want to go sprinting". Should still be on here in comp section, whilst slightly dated still valid. Regs on safety gear have changed slightly. When do you want to start? You will need competition licences and a suitable club (RSS...

Essex V6 tuning

Frankly if you get the basics right ( tappets,ignition) I doubt if would justify the rolling road costs. The 38dgas is a decent piece of kit, yours is obviously in good condition. Worth checking what main jets you have, plenty of information on this web site. A size up from standard might be justified

2020 MSA regs

Had a quick look at the above. Quite a few changes.

Has anyone analysed these yet? It looks as if the standard for overalls on Standard and Roadgoing cars has been lowered, and gloves may be optional?

Coolant pooling on top of inlet manifold

Assuming Essex powered, the inlet manifold is complex, with water flowing through it, and keeping oil in the top of the block. It will need replacing with care and good quality gaskets after careful cleaning. Worth checking the thermostat housing but this is pretty simple and a leak should be fairly...

Goodwood 5 October 2019

As it runs ok on track the basic system looks ok. I would go for a better fan first as it does not seem to get enough air when stationary
