Also without the exhaust, it will affect the fuelling.The Marcos Graveyard wrote: ↑Thu Mar 10, 2022 3:02 pmWill just be noisey. Woody used to have a jig that he checked motors in, simple ignition system and a rad, can't remember if there was a throttle or not.
Anyway, I was able to do it. Just set up the SU as per the manual and that is a good starting point. The area that caught me out was the choke, cold starting is a pain because not only do you need the throttle, you need to hold the choke out while it warms up. Have a screwdriver ready to adjust the throttle as needed.
If you have a new cam and cam followers then you need to get the revs up to 2000-2,500 immediately because they can't bed in at 1000 rpm. 4 cycles of 5 min intervals at 2,500 rpm with cooling in between will be fine to sort it out.
10 degrees of static timing will be fine and then once it is up and running aim for 28-30 degrees fully advanced > 4000 rpm.
All that is left then is to finish the car (like me) lol!
