    Engine dies when clutch operated.

    Nick, if the pilot bearing doesn’t fit (see my blog, I had a bearing that only fitted 50% into the counterpart), noises happened only while the clutch was released. If no gear in place, this is very likely not the issue

    Just a quick, but warm recommendation for all of you, driving without aircon: dash or helicopter vents are a must in summertime. Keep cool, Udo

    KVA / SGT build

    The cage builder did a nice job, cage build to FIA-spec, and a little bit beyond, fig 1. During that time, I took the opportunity to work on portering the cylinder heads of the 289, fig 2, and on the fuel pumps plus pressure valve, fig 3. After getting the car back this Friday, the “drivetrain“...

    Some Falcon updates (it‘s too rainy/cold/salty for the GT40). The „interieur panels“ made of 1mm aluminium are installed, fig. 1. They may vibrate during use, but the Falcon will become a race car, so no worries about that. Also, I added a custom made foot rest into the car, real lightweight...

    This looks like the ultimate heavy duty solution. I hope that I will get around it. Thanks anyway, Udo

    After two weeks of driving, the water hoses unter the steering gear became leaky, most water ran into drivers side inside the vehicle. Luckily, Mick introduced a servive cover, so I could reach the concerned clamps relative easily, fig 1. All original clamps got replaced by ABA types, twice...

    KVA MK1 restoration

    That‘s the gearbox I also used. Be careful with the connection of the shaft to the engine. I messed it all up, and it took a while to get it fixed

    The Fourty is back on the street, first tests show a hugh difference when driving with proper connection between engine and gearbox. Let‘s figure out if this was all, or if more childhood diseases will occur. Welding on the Falcon is done, all seams primer coated and sealed, fig 2, and now, the...

    This is just a heads-up if you use the Audi/VW 01E transmissions and a converter kit, you better measure before building the stuff into your car! My transmissions leaked after 600 km, so it got disassembled out of the car. Fig. 1 shows the status after a while. In fig 2 you see the result when...

    Finally, the GT40 is back from TÜV including historic license. Since the battery hasn‘t been loaded during the last month at the German authorities, the car will require some hours on the charger to be able to start the engine without third party help. I may apply some white stripes during the...

    Latest rumors say that I will pick up the GT40 next weekend, let‘s see. Consequently, I could spent some more hours on the Falcon BIW work. The rear floor is closed in the meantime, fig 1, same for the front tunnel cover, fig 2. Parts are primered and sealed, and therefore ready. The biggest...

    Nicks Forte Scratch Build

    Don‘t worry, even if there is reason enough for it. I have the same setup, but luckily assembled the starter engine before everything got into the car. We both share one wish: may the starter engine last a very very long time ;)
