    Visit

    I was recently visited by David Owen bearing one of his T 2.5 Diesels.
    A friend, a gentleman and a superb engine.

    RE: new Cyclon 09 Diesel engine

    Dave,
    You are certainly correct. Anyone making an engine like this does it with passion and is unlikely to be fraudulent.

    RE: Home Brew After-Run Oil

    It's a commonly used trick to completely fill methanol-fueled race car engines with ATF for storage in the off-season.

    RE: A little interview with Ron Val!

    What we are seeing here is flutter rather than a steady flex forward.
    It could be from irregular engine revs, or from a propeller blade tip irregular vortex.
    Any regular forward flex will be less...

    RE: Diesels are dead ll

    Hey Dave,
    Down here, to be commercial, you would probably need to charge $50.00 just to receive the order for a single head, pack it and get it to the post.

    RE: Curry with your Irvine Sir?

    Ahh, the joys of old Brit. 'bikes.
    I run a 1960, Triumph 650 engine on methanol in my 1964 historic racecar.
