Re: What’s the best cost & build quality for 1776 barrels & pistons

Mahle or AA is good as well.
But it might be wise to change the piston rings if you go for AA.

Re: Grade of oil to ues in my 1776 engine

10w50 or 15w50.
I use in a 1776 and 2110.
Don’t take 20w50 that is a bit to thick.

Re: Engine dies after a few miles

Did you have a look with a test spark plug to see if you have spark?
If you can eliminate this then you can look at your fuel.

Re: Engine dies after a few miles

Take a test spark with you and when is shutt off have a look with the test spark on your coil if it gives a spark.
Or see on all cilinders if it gives a spark.

Re: Negative camber irs

I also have bolt on clamps,from another brand.
I had to turn them up quite a bid to get rid of the negative camber.
I even had to cut down my Y-heater pipes.
Wich was no probleme for me.

Re: What engine bay fire system have you got?

Foam extingiser are the best.
The only probleme with them still at the moment is that they can freeze up in the winter.
That is if you use your bus ofcourse if it is below zero.😀
That is off course for a external bottle,
Don’t see it freeze up in the engine bay.

Nothing wrong with those valve covers,they are from scat.

I have the same on the engine in my beetle.
They also clear the high lift rockers.
