Advance rev should be more right? And you can always drop the OE silencer with me also

Tappet clearance should co-relate with ignition timing should co-relate with carburettor setting should co-relate with air intake should co-relate with exhaust!

Then the petrol engine will perform more efficiently

I felt your timing is slightly advanced , right?

You can give me the webber and always go back to the solex or carter YF.

I am removing my original jeep muffler , it is not in its prime anymore, ill give it to you as a sample.

Scorpio petrol muffler will make a hell lot of difference in the NVH of the hurricane.
Hi Franky,

The Original Specs for the Tappets are Inlet 18 thousandths of an Inch and Exhaust 16 thousandth of an Inch (Thou).

When the FFE was made for my JEEP the Tappet Clearance was set at 13/12 Thou.

After tightening the Head (2yrs After the rebuild & 2000kms), I set it to 18/16 Thou, But the vehicle was slightly/occasionally hesitating under acceleration and running rich.

And since the FFE and Weber installation was done by Elektra Performance, I took the JEEP back to them for tuning.

The current Tappet Clearance is 12/10 Thou, also they have tuned the carburetor more towards low end performance.

I don't think the timing is Advanced, otherwise the sure shot sign would be overheating.

If the Tappet Clearances are on the lower side, it will restrict the engine from reaching the maximum revs.

Regards,

Arka

Hi Arka,

I regularly hit 90 kmph on my 3B,..juts blows my mind away on how strongly the jeep pulls all the way to the top wack.

Have you ever tried pushing your header equipped 3B to see what kind of speeds it would do.

Cheers

Oh it was wind in my hair all the way.

In November 2004, I managed to get a Tail-Gate and swing arm from another ex-airforce JEEP for Rs400.
End November I had the Tail-Gate & Spare tyre mounted.

To be contd.
Hi Arka,i guess you had driven the same beauty in the same way when i was there in Chennai in end December 2004 after Teddy told you about us.And after a look at it,i also went gaga over it.But still its a long way to go before i get something like that for my own.Was going through this thread and i still remember how it looked during those days.Good job dude.
