Thanks for the update Serge. Did you ever find out what went wrong with the first test run? 

No I wish, camshaft was worn on 1 place. Normaly that means to less lubrication but that wasn't the problem for sure. Think you can imagine I was a bit worried with the second run not knowing what the problem was the first time...

Hi guys,

It's been a few years but my LEE1 replica still isn't on the road again. I posted the pic from the rebuild engine earlier but while doing the first testrun it broke down after 17 minutes. Didn't have anything positive left the start over so left it for about a year...

Anyway, beginning of this year I started to rebuild the engine again and last month we did a succesfull testrun. 440 is alive and running like a beast. Also I painted the enginebay of the car in T3 Light Bronze Metallic. Looks awesome!

At the moment I'm getting the brakes working again (car has been standing for 4 years so brakes need tlc...) and after that engine will go in.

Anyway, the plan is to drive again in about 4 to 6 months. Can't wait! 

Here's a link to my Instagram : 

I'll make a pic from the enginebay soon.



As prommissed, pic of the enginebay.
