John, absolutely fantastic work - and some lovely fabrication. I only wish I had your machine shop! How long have you had your Chim? I used to work up at the Bacton plant and lived in Wroxham for a while, so used to blast through the area about 3 years ago. If you're free this weekend, I'll be down at Snetterton with the TVR Racing guys for the Tuscan Challenge racing. Feel free to head down and say hi - there are some fantastic cars out this weekend, and if you need any info on Emeralds and SC Chims come and find me!

another day at the mill finished the front of the engine off belt on and tensioned bracket made for the timing sensor gearbox mounted to engine and engine now all bolted up and in the chassis seems to have been a long haul looking back hopefully the body will come together as well

the modified kit for the preserp will be available hopefully through sc power as they supply the bulk of the equipment required, i will fabricate the parts as you see them plus be available for advise and help or indeed instalations.

John, I would sort out your heater pipe connections before you drop the body on as access there is poor behind the plenum!

i dont think you can fit the wheel behind on the serpentine engine not sufficient room,i had originally fitted the trigger to the front of the pulley myself but felt that having it behind away from the heat would be a better bet and as this is all new development i try to get it right for the outset.

Cool, all of three enquiries I had so far for SC systems were for pre-serps for whatever reason...
