On the road

Hi all,

Thought I'd update everyone on the progress on my car. Well I went to the rta first thing this morning and there was no problems. In and out straight away all done :)
Finally the VB is on the road. Worked on it allday today getting the brakes sorted because the booster was leaking and just tidying it up for the cruise Tomorow and when I finally hit the road to bring it home for this first time one of my rockers gave way on the way home. Got home and had a spare one lying around, chucked that one on ad no worries, went to my mates and got it tuned a little bit tonight an now it's running good enough for now. Off to cruise for charity Tomorow which im realy looking forward to. Been a goal for ages so can't wait.

All the hard work paid off

Cheers
James

Well done James. Time to enjoy it.

I'm sure you already have thought about it but just remember the other cars while you're cruising and don't do anything silly. Think about all the work you've put into your car, you don't want to damage it or have it confiscated by the cops.

congrats on getting your car on the road ,all the best..
But you do seem to have alot of problems with rockers on your reco motor , as i remember you are using 186 head on a 202 block ,are you using the right push rods , sounds to me you are using the longer push rod., when you should be using the slightly shorter one ...
