    Explain This Clutch/Transaxle Behavior

    Hi, Chris. Did you fabricate that support yourself? What's on the other side of the block plate right there, left side of pic?

    Explain This Clutch/Transaxle Behavior

    I'm embarrassed to admit I didn't follow up on this. It is not resolved, but will dig into it this winter. I have the McLeod diaphragm style pressure plate, as supplied by Olthoff. I believe @JacMac might be on to something, but input shaft alignment isn't out of the question. As long as I'm...

    Chassis mods on SPF to fit Quaife 62G

    Chad, Elliot is correct. We had to remove the upper, center section for clearance to the Quaife. Just cut it out, grind down the leftovers, and paint it.

    Wiper Motor Blows Fuse When Park Connected

    Thanks, Shaun. I was going through the same struggle on my Cobra replica wiper motor. Finally figured out it requires a 12v supply to the Lucas switch AND 12v to the "park" circuit on the motor. Works perfectly now, without a relay.

    Willwood Reservoir sealing

    My best friend and "crew chief" on my GT40 is a former racer and member of race teams. They sometimes used wrist sweatbands on these caps. I had the same problem with weeping. Bought a couple of black wristbands from Amazon and he attached them with tie wraps. Won't stop the weeping, but will...

    Safety wire

    I checked all four wheels this morning, visually. They all look like that. Would you suspect a backspacing / geometry issue?

    Ultrasonic cleaning

    I bought the 15L version for about $169 US and it worked beautifully for an Edelbrock carb rebuild - big enough to fit the entire carb body plus small parts. There are some good YouTube videos for ultrasonic tips and tricks.

    Ford vs. Ferrari--New Official Trailer

    Ian, It's interesting. That same Ford "attitude" cuts both ways, doesn't it? The pompous, no BS, vengeful Ford that vows to crush Ferrari at their own game now wants to be seen as - I don't know - above board and classy in all things racing? To be clear, I love Fords and my immediate family...
