There is a really interesting interview with Dougal from Longstone Tyres on the latest episode of The Intercooler podcast where he talks about why period correct tyres suit classic cars so well. Link to the podcast here - https://www.the-intercooler.com/library/podcasts/all-podcast/
Thanks, Andy.  The tubed/tubeless question has also been addressed by Dougal from Longstone Tyres on You Tube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kWJ-tWP3iU0.  This link was originally posted by Beckerman67 in a Fulvia Forum thread in April 2023, but it is worth adding here, just for completeness.

The tyres on my car are the correct size - Pirelli Cinturato 175HR400. They might be a tad smaller than the Michelins in rolling circumference, but not enough to account for the error. Like you, I am suspecting the rev counter, as I was using the sat nav to determine the speed, so that should be correct (my speedo seems to over-read). I'll try testing with an electronic rev counter. Alternatively, or in addition, one could use 185 tyres, assuming they are not too wide for the rims, These might give a bit more rolling radius. Or one could substitute the CWP from a SuperSport, which is 13/45, or 3.46. Even if one could find this ratio, fitting it would be a nightmare. I believe that the listed one for my car is 13/49, or 3.76. I agree about the motorway, but this is a car meant for the trip to the south of France, and by the lovely B roads, on which one averages perhaps 30-40mph, the trip would take approximately forever. I find I have to use motorways even in pre-war cars.
Choosing the right d and n roads your average will be closer 50/60 mph !

Also, I've now found some +0.10 vandervell bearings.

I have got a set of vandervell mains and big ends STD if anyone needs a set,

Hello, they aren't cheap but I'm confident they do a good job. This is my second 1400 build and the first one is going well. They pressure tested the head on this build and found a leak, they have milled out the offending part and fitted a new core plug. I suppose if this detail had been missed it would have caused a lot of trouble further down the line.

Notes..

Cps for pistons, I have spare rods if you need?

I have the head gas flowed and fit 1600 valves.

Hi Nick,

This is very timely since I am in the middle of replacing my S2 1600HF tyres and also deciding on the future of my wheels (Cromodora 14x6J).

The Owners handbook specifies Michelin XAS 175 14.  Their profile is not explicitly given, but in its absence you can assume that is 80%.  I have been using a 175/80 Firestone tyre, but the Michelin XASs are now available from Longstone Tyres (Wangler has provided a link) and I have just bought a set. Putting them alongside the Firestones is interesting - the XASs have an asymmetric tread pattern (the outer and inner faces are marked) and a rounded shoulder - the Firestones are quite square in comparison.  My Firestones are also over 20 years old (with surprisingly little wear, so they must be a very hard compound), and I am hoping the new tyre will make the steering a bit lighter at low speeds on grippy surfaces.
