Loughgall Rally

Post by big J » Sun Jul 04, 2010 6:46 pm

I was up at the Loughgall Rally,a historic event for charity run by the Armagh Lyons motor club.
Held in a country park,it's a tight and demanding wee event.
Frank Manweiler and Alan Lutton were out in Franks Californian,it's first event since a major rebuild and refit.This was also Alans first time navigating and a fine job he did,fair play.
The lads brought her home safe and running well,a good result.

I had a rare aul day,there was a car show on at the same venue and had the craic with some guys I hadn't met before,talking nonsense about Imps and motorsport. :lol: Good to meet yis lads,we'll meet up again.

Well done to Armagh Lyons car and motorcycle club,friendly and helpful marshals,well organised and a great location;I'll be going again.

Love the Dunlops (look like 12 inch?) with Caribbean Blue and Polar White paint! 8)

Are you running twin 40s?

I used to have a black exhaust deposit on the body like yours before I got a Wideband A/F meter and sorted out the twin 40 chokes and jets. It's worth doing as the changes give more torque and power with no carbon deposit. 8)

They are 12" Dunlops. 8)
He does have twin 40's on there.I dont know if it needs rejetting Peter,it certainly sounds clean and revs well.
I suppose a wideband would tell us for sure,right enough.
