Carb sorted, oil leak sorted, rattle from timing chain cover, not sorted, flippin thing  :lol:
I can live with it though, feck it, i'm not going to risk a leak just for a rattle, it's prob the bolt that holds the vernier in the cam rubbing on the cover  :roll:
Oil change tomorrow & re-jet the carb for more boost ......
Pod on the 4th July :)

Been out doing some testing on my track & at 1.6 bar i'm starting to empty the carb, thats with a 2mm needle jet (1.7 standard) 120 main,135 2nd & a .9 a/c.
Going to go 2.2 needle & get testing again, it holds 12.2-12.3 Afr's in all gears up to 4th where it starts to lean off around 6k to 12.8-12.9 !!
No det though, i had my steth on earlier & didn't hear any, tesco 99 ron & a little retarded ign.
Off to pod on the 4th so i have to prep the car up ready for a good thrashing :lol:
Still got a flippin oil leak & a noisey timing chain, i may sort that before pod though.

at least there's no det again. i well don't understand how to set up the carb but i like to think i'm slowly catching on.
and where's your track? a real strip or a nice little dual carrage way?

Certainly does :) it's getting a handful now, if i run 1.7-1.8 bar it will light the wheels in 1st,2nd & 3rd, it tries now at 1.55-1.6.

Out testing today getting ready for pod my car sounded a little tappety (7k+ rpms will do that) so went home to check the tappets & found this



Then i thought i'd sort the rattle from the bolt hitting the cover & it had worn a bit thin, me hitting it with a hammer resulted in this



So got a little bit of work to do tomorrow after work, may be working by lamp light to get finished. lol.

Sorted the leak (well it still leaks a little) & just got back from an excellent weekend at pod with the RTOC, first run saw me into the 13's, then a few more low 14's & high 13's, i was having trouble with the needle jet sealing & bogging down with gear changes so i went back to my 2mm needle.
This just started to lean off as i was crossing the line (13 afrs) but it saw me into the 12's !! 12.9 1st, then a few 13.1's, then a 12.8 & a 12.78 @ 108 mph !!
The mickey t's really help with the starts, best was 1.9 & worst was a 2.1, road tyres was 2.4 !!
Better than i expected so i'm well chuffed  :D

A vid of the car, sorry the quality isn't to good.

Who knows, trapping at 108 i should be close to 220 bhp @ 1.6 bar boost though, going to play with the cam timing & get together the bits to efi the engine, can't get a larger needle to seal so running out of fuel now over 6k rpms, was just into the 13AFR's over the line... normally i'm 12.1 @ WOT so a bit on the risky side.
