    Distributor gear on small block Ford

    The gear did not actually break, but finally failed due to lack of lubrication. There is evidence of overheating in the rocker arms as well. The cam itself was getting plenty of oil, everything looks good there. No metal bits in the pump or pick up. It does have a high volume pump and 2 (two)...

    Distributor gear on small block Ford

    Hi, I have a friend with a Tiger that I installed a Crane Hydralic roller cam , retro fit lifters and Comp Cams stamped steel roller tipped rockers in his 289. There is not a lot of oil in the top end of this engine and at Willow Springs the steel distributor gear failed (overheated) and I...

    Is a GT40 replica a reasonable weekend car?

    I have driven my SPF 600 miles to Reno from San Diego and back plus numerous other trips of several hundred miles. It is very streetable and reliable. These cars are very simple and if you go over it once in a while to make certain that everything is tight and the fluids are all staying inside...

    Weber Help Please !

    The fuel pickups on the CAV's are flexible, try removing the the pick up lines from the fitting on the back of the fuel tank and pushing a phillips screwdriver down thru the tube to straighten it, also make sure the pick up line is not on the vent fitting. Dave

    CAV stub axles

    The stub axles will work with any transaxle, and the 930 CVs are used with any trans axle. The Audi might require an adapter for the CV to attach at the transaxle, I don't recall. I did a CAV with an Audi several years ago and the transaxle came set up for the 930 CV, but that was a trans...

    CAV stub axles

    These are custom stub axles, made from 300m and properly heat treated. Basically the same as used in off road Trophy Trucks, I have been working on them for quite a while to get them right. They look a little different but all critical dimensions are correct . These will fit the older, pre 100...
