    Default R1135 Gordini 1967

    Hi out there,
    Picked up my motor from Sydney the other day, will be putting together next month when the rest of the gaskets arrive.
    Question without notice is: has any one had their springs checked against specifications? I would like to know whether the old ones will do, or new ones required. The car has only done 75000 miles before this complete restoration is happening. Body back from shop early next year.
    Hope to be driving the car by Xmas next year.
    Regards,
    Ross

    Hi Ross, can't hurt to have them checked. I'm sure spring shops must be able too.
    Others here will be more knowledgeable than I

    You can check them yourself, but with only 75k miles (are you sure they're not Km?) I would say they're okay. First check would be to compare them against each other and take it from there.

    Ross,

    If you have them checked, what should the pressures be? I do not know what original pressures are but because the G was a high revving car out of the box I can suggest that you aim for about 50 lbs on-seat pressure and around 170-180 lbs on-cam pressure. This is enough for up to 8000 rpm taking into consideration the weight of the valvetrain.

    Shout out if you do not know what info to supply to the engineering works.

    Regards, Frans.

    Young enough to do it anyway.
