    Superformance Driveshaft Flange

    They made upgraded half shafts for my car. Very good service. Dennis Olthoff uses them as well.

    Stewart Warner 240A Bumper Springs

    While disassembling my two pumps, I noticed that whoever restored them put in the wrong springs. They are binding and seized up one pump. Any help in sourcing new ones or providing the specifications so that I can have them made would be appreciated. I am also looking for replacement switches...

    Superformance Builders

    All I can say is that if a builder is not willing to check his ego when he is over his head in terms of abilities, he should not be untruthful and do terrible work at a customer’s expense and then take no responsibility. Pure and simple, it is wrong. I was fortunate in that I was able to absorb...

    In terms of product knowledge, assembly, and a place to source parts, I agree that Olthoff is the best choice. Unfortunately, I ended up using Bill Andrews at HRE Motorcars in New York.

    None of these one offs are easy and affect so many systems. I had to put in electric air conditioning and then had a lot of wiring issues as I needed a larger alternator, reset able breakers, a secondary fuse panel and the list is endless.......

    I forgot to mention that it is an aluminum Shelby block with original cast iron heads. The internals are primarily billet and the engine was designed and built by Ernie Elliott.

    In response to some of the questions, the exhaust is a custom stainless steel design that is ceramic coated due to heat issues. The firewall backwards needed to be reinforced with a billet upper cross member, lower trans support, reinforced shock towers, electric air conditioning, and several...

    Superformance GT40....order now, price increasing!

    I fully agree with the skill and knowledge of Dennis Olthoff. I had my car originally assembled by Bill Andrews at HRE and had to disassemble and redo my entire car right after he delivered it to me. It was unsafe and probably would have either had a major mechanical failure or burnt to the...

    MK 2 AC Pressure Switches

    The problem that I am having has been narrowed down to what is causing the trigger wire on the compressor to cut out.

    Rick, I don't have the wiring diagram from Blas but have ordered one from him particularly for this reason and other issues in the future.
