i managed to hold on to 3rd position in the 30 min final, and the winner was Disqualified for being underweight, that moved me up to 2nd position.
i also drove the 733 into 4th position in the tourer final.
Great cars, and easy to work on.

What is the trick to getting the motor installed with the sideplates on? or do you just have to take the trans side plate off?

by taking the plate off at the spur gear end, everything just lifts up . is the easiest way , and leaving the engine mount behind as well.

Thanks DJ. 2 cars are hard, im just lucky they are Serpents, as they seem to be easy to work on with less time than others.

Just loosen the pipe side plate(if you use it), you dont have to take it off, and take the motor screws off. Dont take off the motor mount, its easier to just pull the engine, and you dont have to re-set the mesh. I run a Nova and a Picco and the mesh stays the same with both motors.

like patto, i got to take the spur side plate off in order to remove the engine.

taking the pipe side plate off, my engine still couldnt be taken out as the flywheel would be blocked by the brake disc.

That is what i was having a problem with.

Are people running both of the side plate stiffeners? The used car i bought did not have either one with it.

1.2mm is too much, try 9.25mm to 9.75mm on the clutch nut using 1.8 hard spring (part # 909520)
set the gap at 0.7mm to 0.8mm
with 3 x 3 set screws on the leading weights
end play set to as long as the clutch shoe does not touch the clutch bell.

I agree with kamikaze the 1.8 mm spring works good only i use the white clutch shoe and 0.9 -1.0mm gap and no grub screws.

This setup works best in high grip conditions.
