    My London Roadster should soon be back on the road. The engine has been rebuilt and should get installed tomorrow. It’s now a 1776 cc VW engine.

    Mark, Any details on the build? I am having an 1835 built with dual Kadrons and Pertronix II igniter ignition.

    I tried to fit those dual Kadrons, yet there wasn’t enough room in my engine bay without cutting into the body. So I went with a Delorto carb. Now that carb sits too high and I cannot fit an air cleaner on top of it to fit with the lid closed. Parts are ordered for a remote air cleaner.

    It turns out that my fan housing and engine tins were in pretty bad shape. I’m going to replace all of those.

    Finally the car was delivered to its garage yesterday. I’m busy at work and haven’t been able to see it. Maybe I can see it this weekend.
    The engine builder says it will have 100 to 120 hp, which is more than enough for this car. About 3 weeks ago, we thought it was going to be ready, except that the brakes failed on a test drive. We went with an entire new brake system, replacing everything.

    I can’t wait to drive it.
