I am contemplating constructing a light car for touring purposes, with good road holding and high power-we ight ratio as the chief objects, and I have in mind utilising Morgan three-wheeler front suspension and a 1,100 c.c. J.A.P. or similar engine. I have no personal experience of either of these units and should be very glad if any of your readers would kindly tell me whether the former is likely to prove superior to the normal front axle layout, assuming that a

good. frame and steering box are used.

On the face of it the 10/40 J.A.P. appears to deserve a greater following if the 40 b.h.p. can be maintained without frequent attention. Are there any serious disadvantages with this engine ? Can these engines be kept reasonably quiet, what m.p.g. could be expected and what are the normal maximum r.p.m. ? Cost has to be watched carefully, and, consequently, a very high standard is not expected. I am, Yours etc.,

G.E.M. Thornton Heath,

Surrey.
