This is a very short film during the tuning of the carburators and jets.
AFR at this stage was running a bit to rich under acceleration.

Serious question. Is this necessary or not?
Not so serious explanation why I did this. I wanted to go faster when driving in reverse, so I gave my airplane propeller some more air.



Mounted the number / license plate on longer bolts.

Tapped NPT thread into two regular nuts and welded those onto the rocker covers to connect the vent / oil return hoses.

The carburator tuning is done, so I no longer need an O2 sensor. I replaced the CSP Phyton with the GPP exhaust. It sounds great standing behind the car. In the car the intake sound is much louder than the exhaust. When buying this exhaust you can choose between 3 sizes. I chose the largest and most quiet, which is 160mm.

Nothing more I can do at home on the engine.

Ready to take it to the next step.











Next update it will run on the engine stand.

There is no take 2 for a first start. To dark and short, but it's prove it's alive.

It sounds better in real life than on video. For some reason my camera mic. does not pick up the exhaust and induction noise but you can hear the ticking from the valve train very clear on video.

For the first start and cam brake in it ran very rich 11 12 on the AEM AFR gauge

I started with 55 Idle jets. And 1,5 turns on the Idle mixture screws. For the cam break in I only synchronised the carbs and let it run at 2000 rpm. for 20 minutes. Next time I will start testing different jets and tune the carburators. They ran surprisingly well straight out of the box.

I second that, and that's out of the engine compartment.
