    South African 1969.

    Hi Andy Tbh I'm not sure I am going to use it now! I spent the weekend dropping the kids and their mates all over the place and I have realized I quite like the microbus interior after all. I might be tempted to sell it on for what I paid you for it but am quite happy for it to sit in the garage...

    Found a danbury interior for sale on thelatebay this morning. Collected it this afternoon. Needs some tlc but for £50 it was a bargain.

    Its 2027cc twin 36 dellorto carbs, vintage speed exhaust, cb heads and a 6 rib gearbox. I got it from a forum member years ago and it's been sat in the garage since. Graham at rawspeed said it seems like a good engine so I am happy. It wasn't very expensive at the time but Graham said things are...

    It had a change of jet size and one of the idle valves was blocked. Made 90bhp at the wheels on the last run, I think that was 4 more than the first. I didn't stay and watch I went for a McDonald's breakfast instead!

    Yes twin carbs. Just messaged rawspeed tuning in Plymouth. He has a great reputation and really knows his stuff. Should be on the rolling road next week. As I said it is running well but I just want to have someone knowledgeable give it a health check.

I have not had the tracking set since the ball joints track rods etc were replaced so will look into this soon. The 2007cc engine runs well but would like a rolling road session just...
