Bogging at 4000 rpm

16-8mm reducers (joiners) are available on ebay in nylon for a couple of pounds each.

Hose - I’ve seen a few places selling “Marine” hose at 16mm; it’s either that or Goodridge hose if it’s compatible with modern petrol (I suspect it is but an email to them won’t hurt).

Bogging at 4000 rpm

M16 thread maybe - but 5/8”/16mm is huge for a fuel outlet? Normally 12mm from a tank to pump?

Just had a google and 16mm is used :shock: - just haven’t come across anything that big myself.

1800ti cambelt tracking

If a belt is tracking off, then that usually indicates a misalignment of one of the pulleys (or too tight); given the cam and crank pulleys shouldn't (can't?) be out of alignment, I'd have another look at the tensioner pulley.

Wheel options??

Another consideration might be nuts..not all wheels are held on the same. To my knowledge there are many different types, all relating to the wheel type: Steel wheel Wolfrace Dunlop “composite” - 2 variants MAG (Princess Anne) alloy Middlebridge allot Assuming yours has Wolfrace fitted, steel wheels...

Fuel Additive

I don't recall the exact "brand" or company that was selling them, but it did transpire that the same person was at the top (Philip Broquet IIRC) amd behind it all, one way another. He went through a phase of becoming a serial director with a stream of companies all magically selling the same produc...

Fuel Additive

They're all the same product, just repackaged or renamed - I think it was called "FuelCat" but the Broquet name was dropped at the time as they were being investigated by someone or other. Still the same person selling them, though. Certainly was back in 1991 when I had a cylinder head destroyed in ...

SE6A Overdrive

It’s a fixed ratio for the overdrive of about 0.8:1 so it should be dropping about 600rpm at 3000rpm in 4th.

I have had first hand experience of them, Geoff. I can categorically say they do not stop valve seat recession.
