Re: Perishing rubber!

Sava white walls are known for exactly this problem and are death traps. I'm surprised there are any still around being used.

Re: Small block upgrade

My advice would be to send a 150 barrel and head to a tuner like Harry Barlow at Pro Porting. Get it bored to 175 and a stage 4 tune ,using an Asso or Escort piston. It will run really well with a 20mm carb and Clubman. The piston and tune/rebore costs about £140-150 including machining the head. If...
