Interesting stuff - my engine number falls into the smae range.
As mentioned this range is the last one with high compression.
1 What would the compression be?
2 Does this high compression has advantages or disadvantages
3 I have removed the gulp valve etc., so the sump is breathing
to the inlet manifold. Is the allright or should there be other
needed in order to have the engine running correctly?
The engine has not been restarted after the longish restoration.
