That's Miles's Cougar innit? twoz the working 'plug' that Cougar did and originally had a 650 efi Lamborgini pleasure motah fitted.

Then got the second hand motah(s) from 'Lethal Magic' (see the 'A bit of lethal magic' thread)

Bizarrely I was reading WOP last night that reported the oil drum engine cover, but they didn't have a photo of it - hutchy must be a mind reader

The gent with the eyepatch - Ed Williams-Hawke - navigated for me at Cardiff last year in the V24 race. I think we finished 3rd in a gale. Twas really really rough, and Ed did not complain once about the bumpy ride.....

Ed is a pretty 'well seasoned' racer.

"took him ages to start htat at windermere"

Starting a hot V8 does take ages but it doesnt mean there is a problem...The engine has to be cold cranked until oil pressure builds THEN ignition on and go. The money teims use pre-lube..

The following was the start procedure for our blower motors. Instructions came from the builders, Express Racing engines.

Ign. off - bump engine on starter
Ign off - Spin engine 15 seconds - pause 15 seconds - spin engine 15 seconds
Ign off - Pump throttle one full pump and then 1/2 pump
Return to idle position

Ign on - Start engine

If no start, another full pump on throttle and return to idle position, and engage starter

Idle at 1500 - 2000 revs for 2-3 minutes


DO NOT PUMP THROTTLE WHEN STARTING ENGINE !!
