I have Mikuni carbs on some of my Triumph motorcycles. Very hard to set up as they are known to wear out the slides. Triumph swapped to Kliens but they are much more expensive 2nd hand.

Picked up another future project this week.








It looks like it has Ford Escort Mk11 running gear, engine is missing but the chassis appears factory made so it'll do for some thing.

Thumbs up

That is a Dutton Phaeton Series 3 - Iím sure you already knew that. I built one in the early 1980s. They are simple things. You are correct, it uses Escort Mk1 or 2 parts. The front suspension uses the strut cut down, Austin Maxi ball joints, Duttonís own upper wishbones and spring/damper units.
I will be watching this project with interest.

Got yet another project !!



GTM Rossa K3, powered by a standard "K" series 1.4

This one is registered correctly and complete but unused for several years.
I think I'll just give is a quick once over, sort things out, MOT it and pass it on.

Any one interested !!

Been playing with the 3D printer again.

Before.



After.



At the moment I'v left it red as the car's going to be red but that might change.

I'v spent many hours trying to get this jaguar engine to run on the bike carbs set-up but failed.
No matter what I do or try I just can't seem to make any progress
The engine will start and run but nothing like it should.

I'v now had a re-think on the whole system.
I modified a distributor from a BMW which turns the correct way and has a mechanical advance.



I have removed the bike carbs and replaced them with a home-made manifold set-up using a pair of CD175 carbs that I had lying around the workshop.



The engine now starts off the key and runs but much better!!
The engine will run reasonably well and will rev but only if the choke is 1/2 way out.
As I'v stripped checked and cleaned the carbs, I now think this is down to wrong jets as I think these CD175 cars where originally fitted to a 2lt Triumph engine.

It's not yet perfect but I now feel like I'm making progress in the right direction.
