A narrower engine = more things to solve

Because we have increased compression by machining down the stock heads rather than fitting custom units, the motor will be about 4mm shorter on either side (which is quite a lot in engine terms I guess). This will mean a few other modifications will be needed - the stock pushrods will need shortening, some tinware will need modifying (wish we had realised this before we had it powdercoated DOH!) and I guess the knock-on effects will keep coming - carb linkage, hmmm, dunno what else.
Oh well, will keep you posted.
