I know this is not questions you get every day ! but, I am very close to buying a very nice Cosmo Sport 110S, 10A, 1969. It is overall in very good condition, but there is some problems with the car running proberly the car has been at a Rotary specialist for many month to get this sorted, a week ago it came back to the owner, that of course believed the car now was as good as ever, but after she (yes the owner is a woman ) took it for a good testdrive, she is not happy with the result ! here is her experience:
For your information the car is running smoothly and starts without
problem. Up to about 4000 rpm she feels fine, but then power drops off
so in 4th with my foot almost on the floor she is only doing 80 kph!!
Also as soon as you put the engine under pressure, clouds of white smoke
out the exhaust!
The compression test results given to me by Rotechniks are:
Hot compression test results @ 250 rpm
Front rotor 5.9, 5.4, 5.8
Rear rotor 5.2, 5.0, 5.1
So, do any of you guys have any thoughts about this ? what about the compression figures, does they seams ok for such a motor do you think ? I am really looking forward to hear of any thoughts, as I really really would like to help the owner sort things out, so I can bring her to my place soon
