hello as the title says what are everyone's thoughts on installing a 292 cam plus a 3838 Weber. I'vey got a e21 radiator but have not upgraded anything else. Should I look into upgrading anything else like the water pump, fuel.pump or even oil pump.

the cam is a 292 billet copy of a shrick from Ireland engineering

just looking for advice to ensure a happy motor.thanks in.advance .

have a really good 3 angle valve job done when you install the cam also do a cable linkage kit for the carb available from Redline Weber and edis megajolt ignition forget about using a distributar also use f66 emulsion tubes. you should be able to do it all this for a little south of $1000.

i've been playing with a 38/38 for a little while. i've got a schrick 292 and a rebuilt vacuum advance distributor installed. i had to weld a small extension to my existing choke cable and fabricate a small bracket for the cable to use the manual choke feature. i'm using the stock accelerator rods, but i think the peg at the end needs to be relocated 180 degrees if i'm not mistaken, from the 32/36 useage.

i've go F-50 emulsion tube

185 air corrector

142 mains

70 pump jet

and i believe i'm down to 50 on the idles

i'm still running rich.

even so, it's a zippy car none-the-less.

i think i'll try the F66's.

i'm treating my 38/38 as training wheels for my set of Mikuni's...

I think you will be a zippy happy camper.

and if your exhaust is old and leaky, when you replace it,

get something a bit bigger.

(if it's good, don't worry)

What compression are you running? If 9.0:1 or lower, when you rebuild the engine go to higher compression pistons to make use of the cam. You will feel a significant difference with 9.5:1 or 10.0:1 pistons. Others can chime in on how high they might go with compression on pump gas with a 38/38.
