Grey Flash 2751

The history and restoration of a Vincent HRD Grey Flash

I thought I’d post a shot of the timing chest today.

This is what we were presented with once the cover had been removed.
Compared with a period shot taken of Terry Prince with the motor in his workshop.

Peter Johnson: “Although many of the ideas were generated by me, many came from Terry Prince… I had a lathe and mill so did lots of work fabricating bits and pieces right through the Flash. Then later, the Rapide outfit and most of all my Egli. Followed (later) by the Tighe Vincent hillclimb car by which time I was quite competent and made things once only… Terry is an extremely fine machinist, tuner and engineer and without his help my racing days would have been quite different.”
