The engine has finally completed 500mile run-in, this month i will drop the oil and filter and replace the running in oil with Millers Classic 20w50, this was recommended by several people, online and forums, the classic oils contain higher levels of ZDDP which are better for flat tappet cams.
Now i have reached the 500 mile milestone i have raised the shift light from 3,000rpm to 5,000rpm as i will start to build up the revs and push the engine harder.
When i installed the torque converter there was no indication of the stall speed on the casing, the best way to find out is apply the footbrake and increase the revs until the rear wheels start to break free, after a couple of test runs i found mine was chomping at the bit around 2,000rpm and breaking free somewhere between 2,200 - 2,400rpm, which was a relief as that was the stall speed i was after..... one less job to do :)
The clip shows the car being held on the brake, revs increased from 1,500, 2,000 to releasing the brake and opening up the throttle, the wheels span through first and second but i let up half way through second and changed up, love the sound of the car when it's rev'd up !
0-60 run, rolling start from around 5mph to 60, you can here me come off the throttle at 4,000rpm in second (SAT nav actually said 64mph).
