68? I think I could stretch to that!

Twin cherry bomb exhaust? That's a bit of overkill.

'Rally cam engine'. Eh?

I love vague statements on E-bay listings like this.

So why doesn;t the seller tell us what it is? 276, 286, 310 Scatter?

And useless in an A-series without an efficient cylinder head. Rolling Eyes

The A-series is a good little engine, it's just the rubbishing gearbox suspended underneath that lets it down. Rolling Eyes

C'mon Martin! You're telling me that you didn't take a copy of Visard's to Saudi? Shame on you!....



..... Or is it a banned publication like Salman Rushdie's Satanic Verses? (Not a bad novel but i thought the sex scene with the Otter was a step too far!) Suspect

If my memory serves me well I gave my Visard book and my mini Haynes manual as a prize at the Picnic a few years ago cos I went all Japanesy cos I bought the Scamp MK4x4GT - the only books I brought with me was a Jeremy Clarkson and two by Richard Hammond.

Anyway why would I take anything to Saudi when I am in Dubai?

The Jezza and Hamster in Dubai (SE of SA) was on the Beeb last week. Very Happy

Not a bad race track you've got their, nice long straights.

The only prob is the lack of bend Sad at the end of the 4 mile straight dual carriageway
