Re: 1971 CHEV KOMMANDO: FLANCE GASKET CODE

Re: 1965/66 Opel Rekord L Rally GMSA

It never rains but it pours!! The Opel 2.5 exhaust manifold where joined to the exhaust must have a pipe fitting that joins the exhaust to the manifold with a metal seating ring!

[quoteShould get good speed! At 50MpH revs are 1950 = 80KpH![/quote]
This was as close as dammit!!
Rechecked on GPS and found @ 50 MpH is 2000 RpM
Formula 50 Mph with 28" (600mm) = 1945 RpM.
Therefore Gear ratio = 3.24.

Re: 1965/66 Opel Rekord L Rally GMSA
