Have now got the transmission sorted including a "Dog Clutch" allowing the engine/CVT drive to be disconnected to conduct the static noise test. Finally found an ignition system providing 8 sparks per engine revolution. Using two V8 four stroke units each with a sensor (set 45 degrees apart).

Work progressed last few weeks, the two radiators, in series for coolest outlet temp., are located and front end just about completed. Rear end suspension A frames & top links completed - CVT primary pulley, ignition trigger wheel, starter ring, alternator drive pulley all fitted to the cut about original flywheel ready to complete crank assembly so I can get it re-balanced. The V8 now positioned within chassis so starting the fabrication of the chassis mountings.

Just manufactured the exhaust & silencing system. The engine is positioned so that the exhaust outlet points to the passenger area inside the car. Could not instal engine other way around as I need to get the crank drive at the rear of the car. This two stoke engine has cast in "Expansion Chambers" with a 24 sq.inch (155 sq.cm.) outlet which then reduces to 14 sq.inch (90 sq.cm.) before it normally exits, under the water, for silencing. So I have emulated this design with a 180 degree rectangular "Box" exhaust leading into a rectangular exhaust(muffler) using a perforated centre section in a 10" square box. All of this will be encased into a fully noise insulated area where its "roof" will allow driver exit through the passenger door, i.e. MSA regs. compliant. The final outlet(s) are 4 x 2" diameter pipes exiting alongside the rear wheel. Current open exhaust is 145 db - I hopethat it works to achieve around 108db. Plywood engine mounts temporary until drive/transmission sorted.
