8 Ball

I left the box of seat bits at home today, so didn’t get them finished, so I fired up 8 Ball and got it outside in the daylight.

What cars did you see today? (Non-Scimitar)

A tidy silver 80s Astra GTE on the Brockworth bypass this morning, then a nice white 1970 911 (no arches or tea trays :D ) on the Cirencester road.

Only the earlier 40s have a gauge filter at the inlet. Did you check for fuel flow as soon as the engine cut out? It sounds like a gummed up carb to me?

Yellow/brown is definitely overdrive shipmate - you need to sort those fuses as some of them are way too high for the system they’re supposed to be protecting!

looking good though, are you going to make Curbs?

Good to hear you’re back on it though. I think I may have a spare Ti head if that could be a better starting point?

Gearbox is the same as 6a (apart from Bellhousing obviously - and input shaft length).

Blimey Bill - that engine was sweet as a nut, what’s happened? I expect you’ll need to approach Nissan for valves - which means trying to get through their parts system that requires a Nissan VIN.
