    Hi Vin

    Hope all's well there in sunny Melbourne.

    I thought you might be interested in the post in the Giulietta forum, regarding flow benches etc, by a Don Martin who is Swedish. He's building a FIA Appendix K engine and seems to know his stuff.

    My Sprint's still in pieces, too busy with other stuff to do anything on it at the moment.

    Hi Vin,

    we have met a few times, just wondered if I could pick your brains a little. I have a 2 litre nord motor that has the original 10548 cams. It was rebuilt many years ago by Luigi Amori and had a lovely torque curve, coming on around 2300 and going through to 4500ish. I assumed that this was the main characteristic of those cams but after head gasket replacement and setting the valve timing back to standard (didn't check position before disassembly) I now have decent power but a real flat torque curve. I can only assume this is due to valve timing as nothing else has changed.

    I did speak to original builder but was not very helpful. (retired now). I wonder if this rings any bells with you given your vast experience? I appreciate any ideas or suggestions although I do know you have your hands full these days so completely understand if you are unable to help.

    Thanks either way, Dave.
