Rolling Road Results

Post by Glyno » Fri Jan 22, 2010 4:15 pm

Just had the call from the guys setting up the engine in my crew cab. Well chuffed.. Peak power of 146Bhp at the flywheel.

Should mean I have a decent bit of fun in it this year...

Great to get it sorted after all the hassle with it - sure it will all be worth it when the sun is shining :)

Sorry for the late respone I missed the thread replies!

It was set up at Read Performance in New Milton http://www.readperformance.co.uk

Top guys - really looked after me and took the time to setup the engine properly. Fuel pump was unable to keep up with the carbs, carbs were a mile off etc etc.

It is now so driveable. Around town or on full throttle it is completely smooth.

Current engine spec is :-

AS41 case bore 90.5, clearance 82mm. D tap for full flow
82mm Crank
Scat H beam 5.5 length con rods
Scat C45 cam with 1.25:1 ratio rockers
Scat Pro Drag wedge port heads
Manton push rods with total seal rings
Full flow oil system with remote filter - cooler to be fitted this weekend
Twin Weber 44 IDF carbs with CSP crank swivel linkage
Full merged fat boy ss exhaust system
Kennedy stage 1 clutch
Petronix flame thrower coil, leads and electronic ignition
009 Dissy
Holley electric fuel pump.

That's the benefit of a good rolling road session, and piece of mind that there's no nasty lean moments when gunning it.

I'd be suprised if that stage 1 doesn't struggle to hold the power if you push it on the track. Nice sounding engine package though.

Yes totally agree. The guys at Read said it wouldn't have lasted very long as it was setup... Great to know it is now running spot on.

Also really looking forward to you doing the rack conversion as well Jim. Be nice to hold it in a straight line!!
