I have not seen this thread before, Quite bizarre really, Im doing a 33 7Box saloon, https://www.rodsnsods.co.uk/forum/gar...x-saloon-82368 I have obviously been reading your mind, and have just got myself a Suzuki TL 1000cc twin for the car, Turn it sideways, mount a drive flange off the output and a rubber shock drive off of that, object of that is to take the shock loading of the gearbox, it fits inside the cowl/bonnet of a 7, 135 hp and 100 ft/lbs should make it scoot
Has there been any progress on this lil beaut?
possible engine ha ha ha. I particularly like output shaft speed 7000rpm engine speed 62000rpm

First time I've had a look at your thread and your thinking of a bike engine for power, have you thought of a Yamaha V max, In line, shaft driven with gearbox in the same unit and you get a great sound from the exhaust.
Enjoying your thread,
I know that one, not enough hours in the day
I used to do a bit sky diving up in Shropshire
Give it up for motorbikes (chops and Harley's) Safer ish,
A triumph chassis is bigger than you think but nice little engine and suspension
Take a look at odgies ideas he has some class ideas
Get a plan in your head and stick to it your ideas will come but do it your way
Just realised how long it its since I done anything with the ruby. I'm busy with the house and also took up a very time consuming and expensive"ast first" hobby- skydiving.
I had already thought about 2cv engine, but to be honest I have been looking into other chassis options.i think a spitfire would work well similar dimensions, cheap and plenty of them about as full cars with v5. I haven't give up on the ruby chassis yet it just seems a sensible choice top concider others. I could do with a bit of input on this what do you think.
I'll try get down tues biff
Cool web site
I love odgies attitude to building cars
OOh i like this..
Check this guy out lots of Austin Seven stuff and some great photos Home
Might not have much power but should be cheap doner 2cv as used in a Lomax kit
