Engine rebuild time

Recommended Posts

So I'm going to start my new engine rebuild in a few weeks. I've seen a cam kit on the piper website. Are there any other mods that anyone can recommend. I've seen that jigsaw do a stage 2 engine. Any good? Any other recommendations. I don't want to modify the bonnet and want to keep the car looking as standard as possible.

Thanks

Andy

I would ask Neuman, they seem to have a good reputation and will supply cam and followers.

As to Stage 2 engine, who knows what the actual spec is? I would save my money, get a head done by somebody like peter baldwin (they should ask what cam so it can be built to match) and do a decent build on the bottom end.

However, a word of caution. It can be easy to think what sort of characteristics you want in the engine, and usually this involves high RPM and power, wheras in real life mid range torque is what makes a car good to drive.

Normal Stromberg carbs should provide decent performance, or a change to HS6 carbs depending on cam etc. A well built and decent condition distributer, and a rolling road tune. That should see a smile
