That's exactly my experience with a 3-1/8" bore J-motor.  With a 51 main jet it's a little flat-spotty and surge-y just off idle, but I get 33-34 mpg on long trips.  A 53 main jet smooths it out nicely.

Just to let you know the outcome of my J Series engine rebuild, block was bored out to 3.125 i.e. 142 cu in, and rebuilt with standard J series cam and BXOV-1 carburetor (.051 main jet). All went well, however, the car was surging slightly when cruising or under prolonged load, changed up to a .053 main jet and all is well. Marvelous what two thou can do. Thanks Doug

My 2007 invoice says Phil's Rotary's and Fast Fours, and Cafe Racer. The mob has changed slightly, but still in business with the same phone number:

Phils Rotarys / New Old Car Company / Cafe Racer Pty Ltd
350 S Pine Rd, Brendale QLD 4500
(07) 3205 4433

The invoice has them at 4 Leanne Crescent in Lawnton.

Morning all,
Followed up with leads from Harv but no luck as yet waiting on a return phone call after leaving message with one of the outlets. Couldn’t find a listing for Ricks fast fours after searching perhaps they have gone out of business.
Oh well as the saying goes “the search continues “.

Thanks Trevor. I wasn't aware that you could do a cut-out with concrete. That is definitely worth investigating. Several companies appear to have "extension kits" that support the posts but I do like the idea of locally thickening. I'll talk to my concrete man about that possibility. My slab is around 110mm.

Well done scoring all that gear Vern. I got fed up trying to buy a decent drill press so I went to Manheim's Auctions at Moorebank and picked up an ex Defence Dept drill. It's a "Parken" brand, made in Australia, fitted with a beautiful Jacobs Chuck and runs superbly. I'm guessing it's around 30-40 years old and it is so solid that I needed the engine hoist to get it up onto the bench!! Drills 9/16" through mild steel and doesn't even raise a sweat!!

Thanks, Ken  Smiley
