I had one of those "freaky" occurrences today.......
I was in the garage discussing the engine conversion with a mate who will shortly be starting his own Micra conversion and we were chatting about what size steel tube to use when I make the inlet manifold.
We measured the inlet port size and mulled over several possibilities and then in a moment of inspiration I remembered my sons old stunt scooter handlebars were kicking around somewhere, I dug them out......and when I cut the steerer section to suit the port/head the resulting oval shape matches the ports exactly....!!!!...Freaky.
So now I have 16" of 4130 seamless chromoly tube ready and waiting....superb.

Ill post some pics tomorrow to prove it.
