    I guess I should update this thread eh??

    As I'm such a silly old Fart I don't even remember if I updated my shit about the new engine anywhere on here?

    I thought I had?

    So!
    40 year old SBC block scrapped. I bought a brand new DART SHP block. I bought Brodix 225cc heads. All the other bits inside are forged. Carbs made for my spec by AED. Shit loads of other stuff inside + lots of goodies bolted on the outside as well

    long story short. The engine ran fine today for the first proper warm through. Its an 11:1 cr lump with a simple twin carb setup. I fired it 5 times today until the carbs ran dry. Fuel system not fully fitted so I filled them manually.

    I'm happy with todays results after 4 years of not hearing an engine run in the car!! More work to be done soon.

    Regards
    Pel
