Help please.

While you are all working out in your workshops on your winter projects, can any of you lay your hands on a reasonable condition Hewland LG500 4-5 speed
gearbox. I have a Porsche G50 and a ZF 5-25 + £s to swop if need be.

About 4 hours of elbow grease later, I've removed most of the kack and glue from the GRP inside the car . . . . once I've filled a few holes I think its good enough to stay in its original gel coat inside, which means no painting, and less weight.

Rolling road today. 125 BHP. I built the engine many years ago now. I built it exactly to group 1 spec so I recon that's not too bad. We normally get 132 to 135 out of a FF 2000 engine. This figure is the only bench mark I have. She had loads of torque. We hope to test at Mallory on 7th of Feb. The only problem there is I leave for South Africa on Tuesday.

At the wheels? I thought that FF/Sports 2000 engines were about 180 bhp at the flywheel.

I was hoping to test a Caterham at Mallory on 7th but probably working now.

Certainly not, the FF2000/S2000 engine is almost stock '2.0 GT' pinto that would have 110bhp at the most in a road car. The only sophisticated bit is the dry sump.....

Apologies if my earlier reply was a bit abrupt, I’d just found out no trains running on the local line this morning! Grrr

The Pintos in FF2000 and S2000 are basically just blueprinted, with small carb mods and tubular exhaust, so 130bhp at the flywheel is a reasonable figure. (Having said that, Delta & Alan Morgan know a lot more about them than me...) Gp1 RS2000 spec gves a lot more power.
