Dutton Kit Cars and their owners
I brought this car last September and stored it over winter, It is a a genuine 48,000 mile car and it come in this condition. I have just put a timming belt water pump and head gasket on it as I am going to use it this summer. These cars get a bit of stick from people but its a cracking little car to drive. I am still pondering over the s3.…Continue

Well I decided to remove the engine and see whats needed, cyclinder head off and the tops of the pistons oily. Theres no lip at all at the top of the bores so mabe just a hone and new piston rings. I will stip the engine block one evening in the week.
The mag has arrived to day, not had time to look at it yet, tomorrows lunch time read I think
I took me car off the road back in may as the engine needs a overhaul, I have now decided to sell the car. I am offering it on here first as a complete car for 2K. Now I know alot of folk out there will say its not worth that if the engine is knackerd but the car cost 10K to build and I have the recipts to prove. It seems a shame to brake it but its worth more in bits, I would sooner it went to some one who would keep it complete and use it in the club. The bad news is its in the north of…Continue
Well car has become unuseable, Half filled the oil catch tank in 40 miles, Im a bit disapointed its this early in the season. I have locked it away in the garage and will not touch it just yet. I have to decide weather to change the engine to the SR20det or spend the money on rebuilding my existing engine, The later will most likely be the way I go, with a few extra goodies along the way to beef it up.
Dave My mud guards are stuck on with stikaflex been over the 100 mph with no problems. The top part of the stay is formed in 6mm rod, after the bend it goes down inside tube. I put a bead on top of the rod and bedded the mud guard down and then I put some on the underside of the bar, I then smothed it all in together right round the bar. I would also give the thumbs up for the badge in white wth blue and red lines.

The dutton was striped to a bare chassis, the chassis then had 2 x box member replaced, The engine was put in place so engine mounts could fabricated, The gear box cross member was made removeable and…Continue
