DDD#11 - shortcut from a long story

on friday we worked till noon to get the Mactra / Terra hopefully ready

 
and made it to Bitburg ...

 
... till the evening

 
explained why we´re sorry in advance for expecting "non-perfect" times

 
but for sure we were expecting having a great time

 
and be sure we´d a lot of fun

(thanks Georg for the pic)
 
and the small 1776cc (test) engine performed really good

 
unless some trouble with a misfiring ignition, a slipping clutch and too soft valve springs. all in all we are anyway happy with the 16.8 that Spez drove with the slipping clutch and we´re looking forward to the next event that we can race after fixing the engine
 
 BTW - if someone has great pictures or maybe a vid from the burnout we would appreciate if you would share them with us and could send them over to info@wheelerdealer.de

breakdown during the 2nd test drive

with some ignition trouble somewhere in the fields. maybe the farm vehicle just wanted a rest in its old "hood" ...


KLF

thanks to the Käferland crew to help us out yesterday with a starter switch that they dismounted from their display

a bit more space ...

... for the engine in less than 10hours

engine test fit

the 1776 fits really tight. since the later engine will need more space "wheel arch welding next"
