BMC SPECIAL TUNING DATA Manual

Well, since I bought a 1275 the other day I figured it was time to do a little research. My father had a shop called M&M Motors in the late 60's and early 70's. One of the things that's still around from that time is the book listed in the thread title. His copy is full of notes and extra articles, it's pretty neat. I spent some time going through it yesterday and today to try to interpret his notes from the appropriate sections and to take some of my own. I'm not sure if the stuff in this book is still viewed as <span style="font-style: italic">[/i]the</span> way to set up a car but if anybody wants me to scan a particular section I could do that.

Sean

A lot of it is still relevant. I think it was a fella called Clive Trickey who did an expanded version (an AutoSport pub, IIRC) with head work outlines and some other stuff.

I think the whole thing should be given to Gurald (sp) so he can put the data on his site, all of it.

No don;t give him the book just the data, that came out a bit wrong.
