    Nice Cortina!
  4. I tend to update the first post and thread title with details / dates each month. From now on will edit first post and quote also chur!

    I've modelled some different bell shapes before, and compared to ideal they all get Vena Contracta a whole bunch more and reduced flow. But the flow rate at which it happens to a large degree needs to be very high. They way I figure it, if a cylinder is 500cc then an intake runner just needs to provide 500cc of air before the valves shut, then it has the whole rest of the cycle to "recharge" So a poor shape is probably less of an impact than if it was steady state flow like on front of a turbine or something. To be honest I have no idea if this will be any better or worse but that's the fun Thankfully in this case the numbers for fuel to reach AFR doesnt leave much to interpretation so its easy to compare. Especially if peaks and troughs move around. The idea is to have enough combos ready to try out that I can put together quickly for a dyno session to do some comparisons.

    Thats some sweet power, love the airbox setup! Do you know how long your total intake length is, down to the valves? Also interesting that with an engine with totally different (everything) it still comes on power at around ~5300rpm.
  7. I'm thinking about sleeving it in garden hose inside the draw bar.
  8. One at work got failed for no sleeve in the hole as it went inside the draw bar also another ones line is run along the front of the axle to the other brake and it was failed for being all rusty (from stones flicking up etc) they replaced it with new line still along the front
  9. All going well, I might get to bring a different car this time/probably still bring the wagon
  10. Get it done

    For Questions Regarding WOFs/CERTs/NUMBER PLATEs

    Cm trailers do a side mount brake line Master cylinder that will eliminate 90% of crushed line during loading and unloading, especially relevant when using a mini digger as the diper arm with clean up bucket attached sits on the drawbar.

    Aucklands Anon Burger meet - Wed 20 February

    It's back at the upstairs carpark behind the Ellerslie Burgerfuel. Enough regulars have disappeared that we now seem to be sneaking under the radar of that nearby resident / maybe he can't hear us over the 6-lane motorway across the street....

    For Questions Regarding WOFs/CERTs/NUMBER PLATEs

    I put a rubber hose from the master cylinder to the hard line. No more broken off brake lines
  14. P clip it inside the a-frame. Much easier to fix when it gets whacked and broken off at the master cylinder
  15. They'd probably accept garden hose going by the trailers I see on the road. Perhaps just sleeve it in some electrical duct so it can't rub?
  16. As long as the brakes work it'll be fine, you could even cable tie the pipe on if you felt like it. Trailer WoFs really only care about wheel bearings, tyres, lights, and structural integrity.
  17. It's a trailer, no one gives a fuck tbh. Just shove it inside the rails.
  18. trailer question. brake line down the inside of draw bar or p clip every 300mm. tha is in advance

    Thousand Dollar Supercar's 1988 Jaguar XJ-S 3.6

    Didja buy it? I see it's no longer listed, although there's always the newer green one in Northland for $6.5k. The autocar buyers guide has this very "Jag owner" advice: "Check for misfires on the V12 by holding a bank note over the exhaust pipes and watching for uneven fluttering." You might also want to test the cigarette lighter by rolling up a bank note and attempting to smoke it.

    At this stage I am just going to do a day trip down to Teretonga. I am away the next week up North so an only squeeze in the day. Would be keen to catch up with anyone who is planning to head along. $30 for some time on the track or $10 for show and shine. Seems like a cheap day out at the races to me.
  21. Where might I run into you if I go for a Burger that day? Been away for a while so don't know which location it is now.

    i have a pair of new red end dashpot springs if thats the ones you want? H1 carbs dont use them, but some frogeye barries seemed to think they would be a good improvement. i dont think they are. so i dont need them

    Thanks Mate. It is a great leap forward. I'm pretty slack about updating the build thread. Lots of half finished bits that only need a small push to get finished. I promise to do some more regular updates, it is pretty close. Put it together, get @cletus to certify and get it registered. Easy, should be done in no time!
  26. Thanks guys, years of working on it is coming to the finale. Car still needs some minor panel work and and new paint job in the future but for now I'm just going to drive it for a bit and enjoy some Touge.

    I had the same thought, gasket has been replaced, I'm not quite ready to rule it out though as it is the most likely origin, now with a fresh gasket any leak should be obvious.
