Re: Really ?

Kenny,

I think you’re talking about JIA down the road in Banbury, they rebuild using an LS3 motor and a new rear end based on a Jaguar IRS.

You’ll see towards the end, a Mk2 Interceptor NDV 504F, does it belong to anyone of this parish?

Re: Interceptor Registration Numbers

Jim,

I have XVM 449L, 128/4886. It was, I think, LKU444L originally. Original colour Jensen Yellow (The 'primrose' one) with black vinyl roof and black interior. Now in combination of rust and Rover Nightfire red!

Re: Rebuild gets underway at last.....

That's useful to know Julian, I may look at changing to either an RPM or an Indy dual plane, although with efi a Torker single plane might be interesting.

Re: Rebuild gets underway at last.....

The manifold’s an Edelbrock Performer dual plane (Not the RPM, as apparently it causes bonnet clearance issues).
The carb on the dyno was I think a 650cfm, but I will be using FiTech EFI which equates to 850cfm.

The dyno printout: 5BC728D4-BAFE-4577-8EC2-C33B7381191E.jpeg As you can see, the graph is only reading from a point where the torque has already peaked (Max torque was between 3000-3300). This is because the dyno couldn’t hold steady to get a reading as it was unable to move enough water due to the ...

Re: Rebuild gets underway at last.....

Well, the lifter was persuaded to work properly after an hour of alternately applying oil and high pressure air (The piston/plunger had a tight spot at the bottom of its travel that was causing it to jam) so the engine was dyno tested properly yesterday. I couldn't be there to see it in person unfor...

Re: Rebuild gets underway at last.....

Guys, I don't have an answer to the epic torque & power figures, but as Rohan pointed out it had just been started so under no load at all. The oil pressure was that high because we hadn't adjusted it (it's an externally adjustable unit), and were also trying to get the recalcitrant lifter to co...
