    Anyone know where i can get new valves and oil stem seals from? i see apex do lifters but nothing else listed for head bits. Gonna rebuild a head me thinks. Mines got a small miss after sitting when warm and i didnt do the head when i did the bottom end.

    You can get the valves ect form a normal motor factors like euro car parts or similar! The stem seals will probs come along with a head gasket set! Or I'm sure I've got a set if stem seals kicking about for the ca!

    Yes, the CA deserves a better reputation than the often widespread. A small and powerful engine!

    I love how these things go full circle, not more than a year ago you'd be an internet outcast if you said a good word about the ca. Now its hip to run a ca or something.
    I followed a beatup old 13 yesterday and the smell of burning oil and cooking gaskets brought memories flooding back

    hello ludi nice CA there mate tidy as usual specs please anything different you've done? that's who mapped mine fc tuning, going to take it back for a remap soon.
    Im dithering slightly as i would like to freshen my engine up IE bearings, rings, stem seals, gaskets ect, yet ive never took on some thing like that so could see it going kinda wrong, Ive had a few minor issues which can lead towards rings going but not 100%.
    so guna do a comp cheek, she runs like a dream other than that but it may nt even be that.
    But wouldn't mind refreshing her up anyway
    what would people buy and were from for a freshen up?
    attempt it my self or get it done if so prices and were to south west ? even if theres a wiz with them south west that wouldn't mind giving a hand ?
    The CA is a good little engine, they drive well like little pocket rockets ahah

    Unfortunately, I could only understand half. :( Since there are no secrets about my CA. Forged engine parts, good supporting mods and a good mapping - it's all in the video, which I have in the car. :)

    But I recommend NGK BKR7EIX or BKR8EIX plugs and none of Denso ... And new or aftermarket ignition coils!

    Best Regards, ludi

    Your probably right there, I've never got people that buy a ca engined car and instantly swap out for an Sr. I've always been of the opinion better the devil you know.

    Just wondering if anyone has every attempted to tidy up the intake manifold at all i.e removing as much crap from the right side as possible. I am currently doing a bit of an engine and bay freshen up, I have the engine out and on a stand and im going to remove a lot of stuff including the intake manifold and I wanted to know what I could get away with removing and blanking

    Where i stand right now

    Norris designs do a couple of inlet manifolds for the ca depending on how deep your pockets are

    Yeh but do you really need a new intake mani or can you get away with removing things and blocking them off, my pockets arn't very deep at all but I work at a machine shop and can easily make blanking plates or weld things up

    It was too problematic so they dismantled it.
    I think the last straw was when it cracked the block.

    It got sold to a chap I know who lived in Ipswich. He spent a mint on it trying to get more power but it was kept breaking, it cracked two blocks. It then got stripped and the shell got sold to a bloke that used to be on here.
