I've had a Carter fitted in the boot of my 411. It makes enough noise so you can hear it fill the carb when you turn the ignition on, but once the engine is running you can't hear it. However, they...

OakHouse, do you know whether the Jag wheels require a tapered washer or a flat washer?

If flat, these nuts may be okay, if the sleeve is too long you can easily cut it down; Professional Motorsport...

Certainly that was the case with the 411/412. If the alloy Avon wheels were fitted they required a sleeved wheel nut with a tapered washer. In addition to getting the correct thread, I suppose you...

Thanks for this Thomas. I am very unhappy with the guy who rebuilt my engine. He did a number of questionable things and it is quite possible that he made a mistake with the piston specs. In fact I...

Thomas,
Be careful which forged pistons you buy. I have JE forged pistons in my 411 and they are very noisy, especially when cold - it sounds like a diesel engine!

Andrew,
would you mind posting a photo up your pump set up. Are you taking the petrol feed from the top of the tank?

That didn't stop them in the past. They could have used the LA engine in the 410, but they continued using the 318 poly A series after it had ceased production.

What's LS ?


PS/Edit: I see, it's the GM engine. So what engine did the 411 S6 use?

When did they start using the GM engines?

Peter,
I should have said, it's the earlier "906 core" 383 heads that are much more free flowing. However, I have read that if the 400 heads are ported to same as the 906 core 383 heads, the 400...

Thomas,
8 mpg is low, unless you are driving the car very hard. I would expect more like 12-14 mpg from a standard 400cid engine - but that's an engine in good condition with a properly sized carb...
