    Xflow breathing and oil catch tank help

    When I got my car, it filled the catch tank every run, the crank case was plumbed straight to it. I spoke to a few old school escort racers who ran xflows back in the day. Then spoke to Burton Power. I now run, baffled fuel pump blank, crankcase vent with no valves direct to one end of rocker cover, and other end of rocker cover to the catch tank. Catch tank is fitted with an internal pipe drilled at regular intervals and the can is packed with wire wool. The 2nd outlet on the tank vents via a tube with a filter on the end to atmosphere. I feel pressure coming out of the tank vent, so it's doing something, I don't get a lot of oil in it. However, my xflow leaks oil out of most of it's gaskets. And fitting a new gasket just moves the leak about. Compression test shows a healthy motor, and it recently made 100BHP at the wheels at a rolling road session and pulls well. It just breathes really heavy. So whilst perhaps not the only way to do it, it seemed an acceptable way to do it. http://forum.wscc.co.uk/forum/blogs/entry/365-catch-can-tme/

    Rolling Road

    So teamed up with the guys form NWKCOG again, and met for a rolling road day. Just a get together, see what your car ran and have a laugh, not a full day of minor adjustments to get the best. Great weather and a good turnout. Eventually it was my go Now being vertically challenged next to our rolling road supremo for the day Ade, meant I had to work the pedals in my own car. As he couldn't fit in ! Result ? Well all road vary, but those that had done it before got the results they expected, so I'm happy to think the 100BHP at the wheels ( 118BHP at flywheel ) is reasonably accurate. And I'm happy with that, specially given some of the other results on the day. But all in all a great day, great company, and good to know there is a small one man garage that knows kits and carbs locally !

    Which engine discussion.

    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2007-MAZDA-6-2-3-SPORT-LPG-DUAL-FUEL-CONVERTED-12-MONTHS-MOT-UNTIL-03-2019/222896955431?hash=item33e5b1a027:g:1EwAAOSwWxxatncC You could probably get most of the purchase price back for the leftovers !

    Nodiz, it's alive.

    It's alive. Its been a bit of a Saga, but the guys at https://motorsport-electronics.co.uk/products/ignition-only-systems/nodiz-pro/ have been great. Swapped to the Webcon trigger wheel setup, much happier with that, QED were good and refunded on their kit. Rolling road booked for 14th April !

    Something for the weekend

    We went to supercars of Southport at the weekend. OK, so there were 1 or 2 supercars, and a lot of Focus ST's, but there were a couple of little gems too. I think we got the most viewers, though the supercar drivers might disagree

    SOLD SOLD Contoured Dash

    Westfield Contoured Dash, with top bumper/finisher. Never used. Includes sheet of Carbon effect ABS for clock and switch mounts. Some small storage marks, but will polish up nice. Been planning on changing it for a while, but now decided I like the dash I have ( honestly nothing to do with the amount of work needed and chickening out ! ) Prefer collection ( Home Southport Mersyside, or office hours Bolton )as it is an odd shape to wrap, but will wrap and post for £20 extra. £150
