Re: Dual carb manifold

Had a look at the Roland website. Picture on there is scary - manifold quality looks to be under par. VW forum reckons to stay away from them. Burton power in UK has got a nice setup but ZAR/GBP exchange rate ruled that out very quickly. :evil:

Tappet noise

Calling all essex V6 gurus.
Any suggestions or ideas on keeping Ford V6 tappets quiet? Currently quiet for approx 2000kms after setting then have one on each bank becoming noisy :oops: . Was thinking of setting, verifying and then spot welding the nuts :roll:

Re: Weber carb jetting

Did the jetting 145 mains - 210 air. Top end much better. Still got a bit of 'hoes en proes' from standstill - comes alive at about 2500RPM - then it is 'hou vas!!!'

Re: My skedonk

Mods - nothing over the top - RJ cam, oversize pistons & valves - todo - branches & dual carb - interceptor setup too over the top.
