Suck and blow, fun with valves

 Finally got to spend a few days on the farm, and finally some ROJ related news.

Young Phil picked me up from milton keynes station in his ear splittingly fast Nissan s14

 It certainly turned the heads of a few commuters.

And when we got to the farm there were a few new toys to admire:

This 1980’s Renault Alpine is a particularly rare variant – only 26 in existance.

This Datsun 240Z looks to be quite a challenge!

But I wasn’t there just to admire the motoring heritage, I was there to work on the 5.4lt V8 engine that came out of ROJ.

An excellent place to keep one’s tea.

The plan was to seat all the valves in the right hand cylinder head – but as with so much of this car rebuild. Plans soon change… I’m putting together a short video of the work I did get done, and I’ll post that when it’s finished..
