Finally getting to build my engine 7 years later than planned after replacing all the parts Jeff Denham never supplied me even though they were already paid for.

Tell me more about those heads.  Are these something you paid for and ever got?
Looks like angle flows but then not..... Built for different kind of manifold. Mikuni carbs comes to my mind when I see that.

They are angle flow heads, one of the few parts actually got after waiting 4 years.

I still have loads of parts missing which he never supplied and I have had to buy again.
Sump,rockers,oil pump,pushrods and tubes, magneto, carb linkage, tinware, camshaft and cam gear, lifters, all crankshaft hardware, clutch pressure plate and disc, cylinder head studs, all the bearings . Probably a few more things too

My Winter project . Nothing to do to the fiat so Iím going to be working on this.  I plan to Refit the interior, change the front seats, loose the MH DOTS for a set of radials, I did contemplate cutting out the cage but decided against it.  I can drive the car anywhere in its current set up but now Iím going to make it more of a road car

Not sure this will pass MSA tech inspection but I want to make sure I get my new seats in the best position.

I think they are probably stronger than some steel efforts I've seen  Grin

What you doing with your old bug seats?

New seats and frames finished! Big thanks to Danny for the loan of his welder and work shop.   Not going to refit the interior now,  Too heavy and I donít think itís going make much difference so I will continue using ear plugs.

Should of lowered those seats down about 1-2cm so you could of put 3-4 cm of foam between those seats and your bum for those moderate length drives  Grin Roll Eyes Grin Roll EyesÖ. a little experience speaking here....

Of course you could just put a real nice Sparco seat in for you and leaving the Kirkey for the passenger.... Cuts down on the number of times the wife will want to come along LOL...
