So we missed another deadline.

With the motor now being buttoned up the challenge is to get the thing running well. We got our greasy hands on some bloody expensive dellorto jets and stuck them in. That just proved to us that the carbies need going over with the screwdriver as it runs like a bucket of rubbish. Screws should be turned this weekend so it can visit the dyno man. Why is it the more you spend on a race engine the unhappier it sounds?

Edit: Changed the fuel, and it runs much better now. Apparently BP Ultimate doesn’t cellar well…
