Thanks Brendan. I honestly don't know. It ought to have. I haven't been able to drive it a lot due to lockdown. When restrictions are lifted and I can give it a good long run I'll get a better feel for it. If Pendine takes place this year I will be able to compare top speed on the run. Other than that it is hard to say. The old 21 stud just begged out to be thrashed mercilessly. I'm not sure I feel that happy thrashing Crusty that hard knowing what is inside.

Really fun video Mart! I think we can all relate to that nervous first time out hoping nothing falls off! With no upper radiator support rods I was getting nervous for you hoping the radiator and grill didn’t take off on you!

Really cool car!

Great first run. The more you run it the better it will get. Put about 500 miles on it then determine if it even needs a compression check. A vacuum gauge will tell you a lot in the mean time.

I was curious Mart.
You had said on the video at idle the oil pressure was 10 lbs.. I hear and have read that's about normal.
What pressure did u have at higher rpm?
