Poll - What engine are you using

Postby admin » Wed May 26, 2004 12:52 pm

It's my impression that not many folks are running their original displacement engines (many Spridgets have been converted to 1275 cc displacement engines, if not larger).

Please post your current engine configuration on this poll. Let's find out what people are really using.

Thanks!

I'm in the process of a total restoration of my '61 Bugeye which I originally purchased in 1967. Been working on it for about 3 years and should have it on the road this summer. I took the 948cc out of it (it had been bored, balanced, ported, 11:1 comp ratio, Weberized, radical cammed, etc. and was difficult to drive on the street) and have installed a stock 1275 with a Rivergate 5-speed conversion. Also have converted to disk brakes in the front. Hoping that this engine, tranny, and brake combination will make the car a little more "civilized". I'm getting older and need a little civilization!

Nuts! I could only list one car in the poll.
But, the 948 cars still have their 948's
Ditto for the 1098 cars, although one of them has been upgraded as far as performance goes.
The 1275 cars I have are all stock.

1098 instead of 1275

Postby Jim Gruber » Wed Jan 25, 2006 2:14 pm

I've got a 1098 and Smoothcase that was transplanted into my '68 sprite by a P.O. Engine runs fairly smooth but sure isn't a high rev engine by any means. Have a spare 1275 and Rib Case in garage that will go in when I repaint the engine compartment next year.

Mine has the original 1098 CG enging that it came with. It works fine and seems to have ample power (for me anyway). :D
