This winter I am working with a oldspeed engine. I have a 36 HP engine, a "Okrasa-style" camshaft, a machinejob on the heads for more power, two manifolds and two 28 PCI carburettors. I will also add a FRAM oilfilter on it. The machinejob on the engine and parts is done by a very skilled person here in my region. The engine is almost ready, only waiting for the heads. The engine is very fresh with new or NOS parts inside. I can`t wait to drive with it this summer.
When I bought the black oval in 1993 it had the original semaphores. My dad fix`d it the easy way - and that was ok for a year. Then I bougt a nice set wich I still have. The old semaphores was sold to Espen/VW54 and late in 2010 I was lucky enough to get they back. They will be restored some day, but just now is it fun to own it again. They belong to this car, and they will be back in action:)
The old hood is removed from the dark and dusty storage in one forgotten corner in the barn. The hood is damaged during the roof-crash back then. I will take a closer look at it in the new year. The old Capitain made a smile when I tried it on him.
A few days ago, Boblehue and I were talking about the important things in life, in my little workshop. Boblehue brought some cold glasbottle cola, and my girlfriend showd up with some fresh bakery. Could we have done better?
