It's gotta be formal time?

Hi Guys, still around...and the Corty is safe and sound in the shed;) the head is still to be done, though to be honest I haven't chased it up recently. I have though made a decision to wind back the head spec a bit. This decision comes after seeing the results Mark achieved after just a tidy up of the ports rather than major port work. 406hp at the wheels is more than enough for me these days! I need to track down some std Cossie valves, springs, retainers and spring seats as I have cleared out all my old stuff:( this should speed progress up significantly;) Other than that, still racing push bikes, which has turned out much cheaper than racing the Corty!! Cheers, Phil.

Good to hear you have a plan...Just keep it simple and achieve completion...You will make more than my 406hp atw. It will be plenty to give a grin...

The head is still waiting for porting, but as of yesterday all other machining is done, ready for assembly after porting:)

Aaah, those pics bring back some memories - rode track/road /triathlon in my younger days. Always a struggle to juggle finance/ time for racing and car modding!!

Wow is this a trip down memory lane! Good to see you still have the car Phil. I remember it some 15 odd years ago when it all began.
