Thanks :D

The motor is a bit of a mystery :roll: all we know is it's 1600+!!!

'had to change it after the cam in the old one snapped!!! :shock:
causing the cam wheel to go crazy around the block..........ooops

Image

Carb's are Dellorto 40's and help to fill the engine bay a bit better I think. in the pic' you can see that the breather hoses aren't connected to anything....... 'still waiting for a nice stainless' breather tank for that, I may have a few for sale if anyone's interested, I'll post a pic just as soon as I get it.

Thanks for the kind words Mondoman :D

As promised here's a few pics of the breather tank I've had knocked up.....

Ten inches of three inch stainless steel tube, capped at either end.
inlets/outlets at either end, two on the top for filters, one on the bottom for the drain, or turn it upside down and have only one filter on the top :D

............. well I like it :lol:

I've sold a few of them here in the UK so certainly you can have one!

The tanks are a little different though in thay they now have 6 rather than 5 inlets/outlets, 2 top, 2 bottom and 2 on either end. They come with two Mini-filters and two Stainless steel clamps to mount it to the firewall....... or wherever. UK price has been £70 which equates to around $135, that's probably a bit steep but then again they are hand-made, it wont leak from the ports like screw in ones do and it's guaranteed never to rust!...... oh and they look rather cool in the engine bay!

Image

Let me know if you're interested as I'm sure we could sort something out....... and you 'could' be the only person in the US to have one, what price exclusivity?

anyway enough of the sales pitch, for those that are interestedheres a couple more pics... this time of the front brakes.....

I would love to see more of your car have you a website where I can look?
