    It actually a dual ignition 1916.
    He built it for am aeroplane project that never went ahead. The cam in it is supposed to have an even lower rev power band than normal that fitted in with my driving so Stan rang me and asked if I wanted it converted with cooling for the bus.
    How could I say no....

    Funnily enough I asked for black tin. But the chrome was already there so I ran with it. Be good if I need a mirror when camping I suppose.

    There are a few very nice splits in Brisbane, and that's one of them. Great effort and result.
    I'll have no chance catching you next time I see you driving around.
    Cheers.

    Probably Paul. Bianca loves Evie so much that I reckon a birthday morning with dubs can be negotiated.

    Thanks folks. About 60km's in now and loving it. Very growly and bit louder but it certainly has a bit of pep.
    Off the lights it can take off pretty quick now and has good torque right through to 60km/hr.
    I have not gone on on the freeway yet but took it up to 90km (on a private 70 zone of course) up a normal incline and it had gut and felt like it wanted to run up to 100 easily.

    Looking forward to my first coast run in the 110 zones to really see what the top end is like.
