We just finished this engine build for the Chadder & Co. Austin A35 van. Starting from a 1275cc MG Midget block it has been over-bored and fitted with Omega forced induction pistons, ARP fasteners, steel flywheel and 285 camshaft. The head has been fully modified by Vmaxscart ready for their supercharger conversion and on top of that we’ve fitted a set of aluminium roller rockers from Mini Sport. This little van will really fly.
As part of this Triumph TR4 race preparation service we look after every part of a race car. That includes engines and gearboxes. The black and red Triumph TR4 of Dave Griffiths has been undergoing some winter prep ahead of the 2019 season. The engine has been freshly rebuilt with a brand new cylinder head from a new iron casting. Additionally, we’ve changed the camshaft profile to make another jump in power. We will fit a new clutch plate before the engine is mated to the freshly rebuilt gearbox. Finally, the whole unit will be fitted in the car before a rolling road session to dial in the new head and camshaft. The car has it’s first test booked at Brands Hatch on March 1st. Fingers crossed for a dry day.
We’ve fully rebuilt this 1293cc Swiftune race engine for our Austin A40 race car. The engine features an all steel bottom end with Omega pistons and Swiftune’s cylinder head and fuelled by a pair of SU HS4 1.5″ carburettors. Next step is to get it run-in and tuned on the rolling road. If you are looking for a historic race car to purchase, this car will be available shortly.
First rebuild of the season has been this 2 litre Fiat twin cam. A nice build with high compression forged pistons, balanced bottom end and Guy Croft head and cams. Should go really well in the 131 road/rally car it is destined for.
Our trusted Volvo PV544 race car finally gets it’s engine back. The full race engine has been rebuilt after the oil seal from the pickup pipe went array causing damage to the bearings. This car’s race history goes back to the 1960’s and has even made it on the podium at Goodwood revival making it very special indeed. For anyone who is interested the car is available to buy and would be eligible for a Goodwood Revival invite in 2019.
