I unfortunately have not taken any new pictures but the project is ongoing, expected to stand at the wheel for mapping in the spring. it's money that makes it go slowly, why should there be such a shortage of those?  Roll Eyes Huh

Thanks for letting us know, Jacob.  Smiley  Good luck with the re-engineering and especially, the finances!  Wink

About the yellow engine with the DCOE carb, Mick Ward of the UK Simca Club had these observations...

  I was looking on the  MatraSport forum for anything on supercharging and spotted the pictures of the yellow engine with a DCOE weber attached to the blower.  This engine is in a 'period' group 4 SIMCA 1200S coupe which has appeared at a number of shows in France..  You note the position of the distributor.  The top of the timing cover is the original position for it on the upright, anticlockwise versions of the engine used in the 1000s and 1200S coupes.  The 1000 cam has an extra bit cast on the end with a extra gear to drive the distributor.   The gear driving the cross shaft inside the block then just drives the oil pump.  The hole for the distributor on the transverse engines is covered by the base of the water pump on the 1000 block..

 All the best                      Mick Ward.
