The Twin OHC T-
Anyway it’s possible to turn the T-
I intended to fit this into an SD1 and then plans changed and I sold the SD1. Then I thought about fitting it into a TR7 coupe but in the end I bought a drophead TR7 with a V8 and decided to stick with that so the engine languishes in the garage gathering dust, unfortunately! From time to time I turn it over on the starter to circulate the oil.
More details of the T-
I tested the engine on a trolley to check that it would start and run on the original engine management system. It took me a bit of time to fathom out what all the wires were supposed to do. Wiring diagrams don’t always seem to correspond with what you have in front of you! Also there are what seem to be undocumented immobiliser details which, it turned out, were not very complicated!
The Porsche 914 is in the background which, sadly, several years later, is still waiting for some attention.
Cylinder head installed in the living room. My wife must have been away visiting at the time!
