Lovely car Gus.
Shame your selling, what are you going for next?
You don't happen to have a map and jets sizes for that, I'll need them when I upgrade from my CVH from last year.
Hope you got some miles in, was she good to drive with the zetec?

Hi,
Mike, when the carbs were fitted before the rolling road they were drilled out to 1.6. But when it was on the rollers it started leaning off at 3500rpm,so they were drilled out to 1.7.Will sort the map out and send a copy.
Wim, the thermostat housing is the standard zetec one.
Gus

Also sorry to say the car is now sold, but it was bought by someone from the Locostbuilds Forum.
Gus.
