    Noice! Like the steel subframe and traditional large diameter main tubes. Was bump-steer an issue?

    Was DCA4 yours? My trained eye suggests that Sprite has been modified.


    Always thought HR&C was a good magazine, I had all of them and was sorry when it folded (!).

    This is an early Corvette 327 but I fancy the idea of fitting an LS style ignition system (distributorless) so here is the timing set with crank trigger going in place. The upper timing gear is machined to activate the cam trigger

    The cover is an expensive billet item with the fittings for the two sensors (slightly crappy picture)

    The cover also has the thrust bearing needed for the roller cam.

    Life never being simple...

    The water pump fouled the new timing cover. Luckily you can get pump spacers in all sorts of thicknesses. In my case 6mm was plenty

    and I made up three little ali spacers for the bottom pulley

    The alternator I'll sort out later.

    Good point but I notice some slots machined on the opposite side. I didn't do the work; I bought the cover and gear as a kit. I've never heard of folk spending a lot of effort balancing the half-crank-speed stuff.

    Thank-you. Not in the same league as Medusa but keeps me amused when I'm not busy with a host of other more boring projects!
