Does Run Fast 351 Eventually!

Another busy day in the man-cave, fitted the final front suspension bits, shimmed the calipers, fitted the pads, shockers and springs and finished the chassis brake pipes. Did the final steering rack assembly and rough adjusted the toe-in. Raised and roped the chassis to the beams, took out the wood...

Does Run Fast 351 Eventually!

Chassis righted, back axle, some of the front suspension and the new brake pipes fitted. It's a pound to a pinch I've used the wrong hole in the chassis, there's a group of four, to bolt the 3 way connector and I failed to photograph the old chassis and pipes! Hey ho!

Following the Daks from Duxford practising for Tamara, I found a Tiger Moth with a very clever pilot who has flown the outline of a Dakota east of the airfield!

Harewood 2 June 2019

Yes, seems the back end is too hard. Brilliant performances from all the Scim drivers though. I must say I'm a little surprised at the points awarded, I'm drivin' the wheels orf my car, PB after three years out of sprinting and yet the heritage cars are still miles off the small sports. I'm not goin...

Essex Timing gear

I'd advise defo not to fit anything other than alloy or steel. The Essex is an "interference" engine, if the cam stops working the pistons do hit the valves which is why Ford modified the cam driven gear three times to try and extend the life of it.

Harewood 2 June 2019

Final regs say we can have a support vehicle too in the paddock so there'll be the RSSOC Blue Butty Bus for tired, thirsty, dis-heartened wedge pedallers to revive their spirits when the heritage hooligan in the RRBT smugly grins victoriously😜🚘!
