Steve - the earlier stator cover doesn't fit the MKII.

Nice work. We need more pics!

That's right. The cover would bolt on but the innards are different. My bad.  Carry on.
Nice work

Started with getting hold of the old drag bike at the beginning of this thread that was for sale here in the UK and now here it is 8 years later!! Lots of changes but fundamentally the same old drag bike but now registered and back on the road....

That's a good number.  Can you post the curve so we can see where the power is.  How much boost were you running?

10psi on the 196 with the old F40 Rayjay with the original bendix zenith. Some work to do on the fuelling bottom end and mainly want to figure out where I am with the ignition timing as this was an initial “ guess” Got no plate on the vertex so unsure of advance at the moment.  Will set the initial static up and take it from there

What fuel ? Carb ?
Water or alcohol  injection ?
Pistons  specs ?

Looks like you are well on your way to  having a real runner.
250 HP  is a very easy safe bet. before the nitrous hits
I changed mine over to the Mikuni 42mm  flat slide some years ago and I find it to be a winner.
