We’ve all worked hard to perfect this new build on Gumby, and here is our first run. This cross flow head with fuel injection should give us about 90 HP. We are not trying to set any power records but to simply make a very drivable and consistent platform, with improved reliability. No carb, no choke, no distributor.
We will run this on a dyno soon and provide some hard numbers. We will also offer all these parts for sale. We are improvising here with temporary gauges until the dashboard is recovered and in place, but in the meantime it runs great. No more fiddling with SUs-the laptop allows fine tuning not afforded with the stock components.
Now that the cam is broken in and the engine is ready for the first drive, we move on to the custom interior, which is taking shape nicely.
