Received these little goodies today for the injectors..

I also modified the oil filler, because the standard rockers covers were fouling on the roller rockers, just need to paint it now.

cheers Ben, it certainly does look right at home, and yes looking forward to hearing it run for the first time. :D

Well another long day on the old girl today, got most of what I wanted done and more, got it to the firing stage but she just wont go, I suspect the timing is out a bit i'll have a play tomorrow night as I ran out of daylight today.

this is where i'm at now..

Image
Bloody s**t iphone pics :evil:

I would also like to thank my mate Tony for putting in two very long days helping me out as I would not have got this far without his help, and my Miss's Sarah for letting me spend soooo much cash on this project... :lol:

Now that I have this running, I took it for a quick spin down the road for a test drive, and discovered it's pinging it's a** off! I have set the base timing to 30deg as per standard, can any one point me in the direction to where it should be set at? cheers.
