Thanks for the update.  How frustrating to be so close and yet it still isn't quite right.

 

Can't help thinking if it was me I'd probably swap the VVT unit from the old engine to the new one but sod's law would ensure that wasn't the problem after all.

Follow me on an adventure to track down the source of my timing chain rattle with lots of fails and one big win along the way (including my first proper drive on public roads!)

The FULL Rocketeer build video. Replacing the stock 1.6 engine with one with over double the power - a Jaguar 3.0 V6. This video shows all the steps that took me 18 months to complete, but doesn't include all the issues I ran into along the way - if you are interested in those, check out the other videos on my channel.

Want to hear what a Rocketeer swapped MX5 sounds like on the move? I don't have great equipment for recording audio, but did my best to capture the amazing noise from the Jaguar V6 engine.
