    Further reply -just found this out.
    The picture " Lance Rutting pic now owned by Auto Pics. "

    This about the engine from John Moxon.

    " Motor was 2.6ltr with a Waggot modified head and cam (40/80) and 3 x 2 in SUs.
    Clocked 120mph that year but had almost no brakes after one lap. A true beast. "

    Was told that, by the Mechanic they drained the old fuel but didn't remove and flush the tank [ too long a job ] it is running better and I have some Meths in Auckland where the car is so will do so
    See you there will be great to see the A95 - will have camera in hand
    Cheers
    Roger

    Kinda depends on how much water, I would go for 500ml, you need plenty of petrol in tank to soak up meths though.

    If you filter the left overs through a loaf of bread it's apparently quite drinkable.

    Caffeine and Classics June 2020 MX5, with ERC and Kevin H

    At C and C, and with me was Kevin Hirst and Ray Green .. I left my lights on for a while and Ray ERC noticed, I did a bit later.
    Before I get my pics done here is Ray's photo - with the lights on.
    Cheers Guys - great to see you and Jane was with Kevin too.
    There were three MX5's a Red a Blue and this one .. Neo [ BRG ] Green - well was in 1991 - a poor repaint in 1999 - minor damage by a tree caused a partial respray - using a BW pic so you can't see the poor paint
