    Glad to see you kept the go fast pedal between the others.  Confuses people.
  • Nice!

  • Where abouts in Queensland ? I am near Ipswich.
  • Would like more info on the head. Very interesting seeing that original ones are getting hard to come by.

  • And here's the Garage

    100%  Keeps everyone honest.  They don't even bother asking for a drive..... lol

    Hi there - I do have the original head.  But these were made to increase the performance in many ways.  From combustion chamber & cooling & even the spark location.  Big improvements were gained.  Unfortunately the wonderful engineer that built "these" heads (six piece) in the 90's has since passed.  They were all a "one off".....

  • Thanks for your interest.  More to come from me in time.  Cheers Kenny.

    Wouldn't bother me , I always found a centre throttle pedal strangely correct :)

  • We say in the states these days that a three on the tree shifter is a theft deterrent because the kids today couldn't drive a stick shift to save their life!
