Beware.. with max s5, hard spring, 0.7gap, the front end of the car looks like wanted to fly up the minute you push that trigger.

Black.. didn`t dare to try with yellow yet. But maybe yellow and original spring might works fine.

Good on technicall track to scare whoever in front of your car

Quick test, dont touch/change LSN - reduce head shim by .1 mm or replace conrod(I suspect too much play in this part) your engine should scream instantly when trigger touched.
Hi Goldfinger - you may have hit the nail on the head, as it were. I rebuilt my 2106 and had to use an old conrod, as the new one hadn't arrived!! The conrod is ready for replacing and will be replaced before the next run.

Cheers, Mark.

Yeah, not forgetting the red hurting fingers.
I have about four sets, I think not including the Alu ones Now I can't see why I had so many problems building the shocks.

We're in big trouble now!

I was asking Lord Rick at The-Border about the insert in the carb on my JP and he said that it improves the airflow and that I should always keep it in there.
Do you know if this affects the idle screw setting?

I think different people will get different ideas about the insert. It is true that it improves airflow but at the same time restricts the amount of air flow going in = less power. Tuning is generally easier with the insert. Power band is also more linear than without the insert. Powerband without the insert is very abrupt. Fuel consumption is better with insert. More importantly, you need to race legally and that the insert is what keeps the engine / carb legal with 5.4 mm carb diameter opening.

Not always the case but mostly idle quality( ) is depends on compression/ healthy of the engine. And I thought 1.25 LSN is not healthy already.

Take off the plug, make the piston (stuck) in TDC.
If you play the flywheel around 60 deg (10 minutes), its time !!!

What do the others think about this engine? Any experience / observations? Goldfinger / Pyramid?
Hi D,
Fantini is a good engine but in my experience yuo can buy ,if you find it out of Italy Novarossi NS12S3 or NSR12S3(this last has the microcasted piston) signed by Mario Rossi (Mario Rossi edition).
The price is 20-25%less than Fantini but we all like it the same .
I have open these two engine and I don't find great differences.
