Hi John V,

You must have a shed full of Picco bits. Looking for a crankcase and conrod.

Hi Fred,
yes I do, but all are used and therefore worn. However I can send you the best one if you pm me your address.

Well done on the nitro win!

Thanks to JV how sent me down various PICCO used bits I managed to build up an engine.
I ran it at Cotswold yesterday, the compression could be better so it likes to rev.
So to stop it bogging down when accelerating late clutch engagement was required, with NF two shoe clutch, strong spring and trailing shoes this was achieved. Acceleration was great but at the end of the straight I was struggling to get it off pipe.
Settled to changing the clutch shoes to leading, this reduced the acceleration but at least i could get it off pipe at the end of the straight.
Done a 8 minute run and it was as good as the last National.

That's good to hear Fred.
And good advice on typical engine tuning / problems. Although I would be tempted to give the piston top a hearty smack with a 'plumbing' hammer to increase compression a little. Hehe.
