Technical - Tuning
I'm not a big fan of extensive tuning and alternations, see dare patina :) but one of my Austin sercive books contained a lovely handwritten contemporary tuning list I would like to share here as well!
This shoud translate into:
Tuning suggestions : -
Fit KE 965 valves with double springs.
Mate with care.
Smooth ports & inlet manifold.
Fit straight - thru Servais silencer.
Add pair of Woodhead-Monroe tele dampers
to rear end of wishbones leaving originals
on. (Conversion kit available).
Remove rear units & anti roll bar & replace
with pair of large diameter Newton direct
acting dampers (conversion kit available).
Michelin 5.50x16 zigzag on front
Michelin 5.75x16 success on rear
