At long last have had my engine fitted in the Bristol A Triumph 2.5 with triple Webbers 6 branch exhaust any one run this engine has any tips to take it a bit further
You have to get that shimming right otherwise you get that hideous scream when the starter doesn't engage properly, like loads of them used to have back in the day. You then sit there wondering whether it's worth trying again. It really used to wake up the neighbours....I spoke to the 'old school' mechanic at the garage where I had previously worked, he told me it was the started pinion touching the ring gear and to space the stater out with some washers. Problem solved!
