Ok a bit miffed now, she is back together modified the air box slightly fitted it all nice tight started her runs, revs and idles like a dream.
Now the nightmare - She is blowing dirty dark smoke which i kind of expected as she is running rich, but she is also blowing the dreaded blue smoke. I thought it'd burn off as we put a dribble with the pistons as you do to stop any scoring on the initial start up but its not clearing. I have tried a few times now including tonight where I stood out there for about 30 mins gently easing her up to arround 3.5k rpm but it showed no sign of letting up. Any suggestions as I'm at the stage where I really do not want to take the engine apart again GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR.:down:
Ah i see, I would say you've been lucky then as there are no marks there on stock pistons hehe
We'll see performance figures in about a month when we hike up the compression, so perhaps we can compare, (we'll still be on a standard head though)
