U2U me with your e-mail address and I'll scan you the chapter on tuning and dry sumping the Reliant engine from my copy.
Or as Minitici says, try the 750 forum or a wanted ad on the 750 club website; the formula has largely gone over to Fiat engines now, so there are probably quite a few tuned Reliant engines kicking about in sheds.
