Re: EFI on a 302

I've only seen an EFI on a Rover powered 289. Bill Telford's car was fitted with it, but I don't think he fitted it himself.

Re: New Member - Long time Lurker

Good morning David and welcome. I seem to remember the name Crendonman, perhaps from the CRC, but my memory might be playing tricks. I'm glad to see another Ace will be getting built and hopefully you will be able to glean lots of info from here. Keep us posted on your progress.

The aerodynamics of a hardtop, and hood are similar to an aircraft wing in that the air travelling over it causes reduced pressure hence the soft top popping up at speed. The straps could prevent the rear screen being sucked out rather than pushed out from the inside.

Re: Fuel line longevity

Mine has been fitted since 2006 and done almost 50,000 miles. I hadn't even thought of replacing it.

Loving the work Nige. I'm not sure about the straps. Perhaps if they were black they would be less obtrusive and blend with the pinstripes.
