SSSC 2018 AND BEYOND

In my view the 2018 championship decision need not be made in person, but the discussions that follow after the step is made in that direction may be best had at an actual meeting. Postponing to a date that suits all would be good, or I am indeed still ok to do this weekend (minimal hangover risk al...

I have a spare set of 13 in steels with tyres holding air if that would suit.

Ben's SS1 - SSF novice sprint car

The corner mountings projecting from the armature tubes?

Over the top. And over the top of the rad shroud.

SS1 Electric window switch

Cross referencing suggests these might suit original installation?

cvh specialist - Engine swap advice needed?

Never found a CVH feel un-tratctable with the cams I've run (Kent CVH22 & CVH33, Piper 285). Probably a different story with some of the race/rally profiles that have more lift, duration and overlap. Only complaint I would have was the lumpy tickover my 1900 had, which was "cool" in it's self, but y...

cvh specialist - Engine swap advice needed?

Biggest gains will be had from manifold, downpipe and carburettor upgrade. Got mine from 52bhp to 83bhp with a ported head. A "fast road" (Kent CVH22) performance cam and on top of that should release a further 10-15bhp. Still deliberating over whether to have another round of 1300 tuning and crack ...

SS1 Panels. Full set £70. Delivery possible.

If paint is not important I can certainly sort you a bonnet and headlight panel, possibly the rear wing. Next van load should be making it's way up from Reading to Sheffield next weekend.

After the fact I realise, but worth posting. Just had to do a wee edit after realising a mistake. Should probably have had a coffee first thing....

cvh specialist - Engine swap advice needed?

01 CVH13 Piston crowns.jpg What a set of 1300 pistons should look like. There is quite a lot of "features" to them, so when carbonised any of the ridges could look like cracks perhaps? Cost of a set of gaskets and head bolts, I think I'd lift the head off for a full inspection anyway. Plus it's an ...

In a similar vein, my old chemistry teacher, who looked after the school armory also, had the reg BUR1N, which was one that had to be explained.

Removing drain plug rear diff

Drain plug is an Allen head / hex, 10mm IIRC. Given the amount of oil changes I seem to get roped in for I have a kit of plug keys on a 3/8" drive. No more twisted or chewed allen keys in sight. Shock seems to be the best way to get these things shifted.
