    ATK Engines.

    Check the manifold fit all round in a dry assembly. You can use the cork end seals to get the height correct ( then throw them away and use silicone rtv). I've had an new Edelbrock manifold that was a problem fit in the past so a problem there is not unheard of.

    ATK Engines.

    I suspect that you have a leak at the intake/head interface that is allowing water to be drawn into the plenum area of the intake manifold itself; this would explain the presence of water in all the bores. Replace the intake gaskets and refit the intake. To make sure it's leak free you can...

    2019 Formula 1

    The change from 13" to 18"dia wheels is a really big one that barely gets a mention in that vid. F1 has been using high sidewall slick tyres since the early '70s and, cosmetically, they have contributed a lot to how we think an F1 car should look. Formula E cars look strange to me with those...

    ERA for sale

    In some senses there is no difference between the GE and GW heads ; after all it just a name on the valve cover. However, in period heads badged as Weslakes were the race versions (Weslake mk1,2,3,and 4), only the last version having the inclined carbs. Gurney then developed a detuned, cheaper...

    24 Hours of Le Mans this weekend!

    Most of that zigging and zagging was to break the tow on the straights (FGT didn't have the straight line speed otherwise), I would classify the remaining manoeuvres as robust!
