David, I didn`t go into the actual overlap period, just that they are both open at the same time. But if you want specifics then the inlet valve opens at 28 degrees before TDC and the exhaust closes at 28 degrees after TDC, that is 56 degrees of overlap which is pretty good for a road engine (1600 Fulvia ). Obviously race engines can have more but it`s not just the overlap that gives more power, but cam profiles which determine speed and duration of opening and of course the amount of valve lift.
OIC.   Must be difficult to set without a timing wheel then.  Rather you than me.   I'll bear it in mind if ever I have to redo mine though.

The engine is finished and ready to fit , but I came across a bit of a "show-stopper", not drastic , the clutch plate and cover that I had for the engine is not correct !
New one should be here mid next week

I wonder if it's Flavia/2000 as it is about 1/2" bigger? If anyone can confirm and/or wants it , it is yours for 25 plus postage (marked as Valeo 215 DBR)

Just finishing off the oil cooler now

The block looks a very thin filling in that head/sump sandwich.  Only just noticed its green.

The green is a personal thing - and will match the plug leads .....

(I think that they were originally a boring light grey)

All the clutch parts arrived last week, so it is ready to go again. Just before I do the swap though, I will fit a new set of carbs that I rebuilt this week.

It will be good to set them up on a running engine then they can go onto the shelf as a known entity

Simon, great job as always. How did you remove the broken chain oiler eventually?

Is it not called gravel spray , maybe stone chip ?? - It is a textured paint (undercoat) that is often used under the bumper line and on cills before painted in bodycolour. I have been using a UPOL product called Gravitex at about 10/litre

Hi Simon, did you apply it using a compressor and gun? Or does it come in a spray can form?

Sorry, only just spotted this reply !

I use it from a can and attach a spry gun (schutz type) via compressor
