Re: [DML] Re: Hot exhaust

Good input, Harold :-) If you manage to get a cam off by a tooth, the 
engine runs like a bag of nails - got the T shirt on that one! I think 
Nick has now manually timed up the cams with a dial gauge so the process 
is very different than following the book

The early Renault engines have a single fuel inlet on each rail and 
quickly moved to twin pressure regs and twin inlets so there may be a 
pressure differential along the rail - but I suspect the symptoms of 
that would be less obvious than these.

Nick: remind me, have you tried running the cams at 110 degrees inlet 
full lift? Mate if you get really stuck, I can supply a pair of cams 
from a Z7U turbo engine which you can time up by the book.

For anyone's interest, we have two complete Z7U 2458cc turbo engines 
ready to go. I've already hybridised a third into a DeLorean with an 
Island Twin Turbo.
