A day in the life of BRP
A full day just on BRP today.
First a visit to S&S Preps for an engine health check. Is this engine a sound basis to go forward with or something that is about to expire?
Of course it's neither!
The experts at S&S seen here working on BRP today found that the engine was basically sound with good compression, a blowing exhaust manifold gasket, carbs that needed balancing along with adjustment to the mixture as well as the timing needing adjustment.
By eck she flies now Captain
The downside though is that there are only about 2 threads that are OK in number one spark plug hole and that the timing chain tensioner needs replacing. Then we get into the "whilst you are at it" syndrome so there's much to ponder over including at least 8 options we came up with!
After this though it was an afternoon of rally prep which really didn't get very far. Actually one switch mounted to the car as well as the accompanying sticker applied! I won't go into the whys and wherefores but, as always, I will return to this again.
Here's the sticker and "the hole" before it was filled with the switch.
