SUNNY TRUCK IN USE

September 1, 2013

Sometimes I forget I even owned this car but thankfully the new owner Mark has kept in touch. The above photo of the Sunny is from the Hutt Valley Motorsport autocross held on the weekend. Apparently the Sunny went great and finally turned a few tires into smoke in the dry. I can’t say just how happy I am that this car went to someone who is taking care of it and is shredding some tires, it makes all that hard work worth it even if it’s not me driving! Mark placed 19/43 entrants, between a silvia and a skyline, nice one Mark.

I believe it is currently in the process of being certified for road use although it was already certified for the suspension and wheels. Will keep posting on it where possible.

Credit to simply vanilla for the photos, thanks!

FCR SR Video 1

So it runs and the bowls don’t leak! I’m having a little issue with the throttle returning to idle even after a new auxiliary spring was added. Soon I will pull the carbs down and service the main return spring assembly.

I plumbed in a new low pressure (2-3.5psi) fuel pump and a Holley fuel pressure regulator. There is also a splitter block in there to feed the excess back to the tank. Remember that these carbs are built to run on gravity feed and hence really dislike pressure into the bowls.

I make many apologies for the visual and auditory experience of this video:
1) Damn that engine bay is ugly! It’s a work in progress and the carbs have been set up for initial testing and tuning without to much thought towards cleanliness and presentation. This will come as soon as it runs nicely.
2) Canon 7D microphones and controllers suck and I wish I had a better way of getting crisp sound.

I drove it up and down the drive way a bit bit and it definitely needs a tune but it runs fairly nicely and sounds great!

GP125 WORKINGS

January 21, 2013

So here it goes… the GP125 is in pieces, the engine is out, the unnecessary road gear is in the bin, clip ons are 3/4 done and I’m studying 2 stroke tuning like a fat kid on a sugar high.

Some reference photos of the engine because I’m yet to see any decent quality ones online:

Thanks Chris for the photos! This was such a fun day, I can’t wait for the next one. Between motorbikes I’ve been getting along with fixing the radiator. I have everything I need, I just need to modify the water outlet to fit the thermo switch and wire that in and we’re good to go.

See Freshly whipped for more of the day. Come on Chris, get some more video up!

I first have to apologise that the old server that I used to host my photographs off (my mothers) has stuffed up and now denies everyone access to view most of beeoneoneoh. I’m sure you would have noticed if you have tried to view the cream or any of my old posts. It sucks but the effort it requires to reupload and change the links to all 1300 odd posts that are broken is phenomenal. EDIT: Whilst most posts are still not working, I’ve re-hosted and edited some of the cream posts which have scans I’ve done.

Since the beginning of beeoneoneoh I’ve been fizzing on this car, in fact it was one of the first cars I ever posted about. I took some scans a long time ago now (where does it all go?) and I’ve rehosted them for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy my favourite Datsun 1200 Coupe below, follow this link to the original post then click the link in that post too (now fixed). It’s a desktop background size too!

What would beeoneoneoh be without a b? I’ve been starring at this photo for quite some time now, you can imagine why.
I’m not going to try and make excuses as to why this hasn’t been my priority for a long time now… but it hasn’t. I have been doing bits and pieces and not posting about it but I’ll do an update at some point. Not a lot of large things to do still,  I’m just plugging away at lots of little ones; you know how it is. I thought you’d enjoy the photo, I do, and in due time this car will be better than that^
