VIDEO: revving the engine after fitting new head-gasket, twin carbies and mild camshaft!

Here is a video from last weekend after I had just finished changing the head-gasket, fitting twin Solex carburettors and a Crow Cams mild camshaft. The video was shot right after I had tunned the ignition timming, but before I tunned the carbies, as you can see by the fuel-rich exhaust smoke.

The car sounds pretty good considering the engine is still the factory-standard Astron 2000cc Hemi four cylinder with matching numbers. The only internal modification is a high-flow thermostat and the mild camshaft! The exhaust is still the factory restrictive unit with two resonators and one big rear muffler.
