    Vapor lock challenge

    What a stunning car! It must be really frustrating to have these issues. I always try the simple stuff first. Have you tried ethanol free fuel? Ethanol really lowers the boiling point and it wouldn't take much Arizona summer heat to bring it to boil/vapor lock in the extended fuel lines from...

    Bob Bondurant

    What a loss. I met Bob and chatted briefly with him at the Amelia Island Course in 2013 on the anniversary of the Ford GT program. He talked about what a great time it was touring Europe in the 60's with the various race teams and how he's like to sponsor an event just discussing the racing...

    Early CAV Mono Front brake disks.

    I was at a car show last week and a fellow with a street rod had very nice 11-inch slotted and cross drilled rotors with PBR Cobra calipers. The setup appeared to be similar to my early CAV mono. He acquired his brakes as a kit from one of the catalog houses and he thought it was from a Mustang...

    steering boots

    Try Ford Cortina MK3/4/5Manual Steering Rack. KELLY BRAY STEERING RACKS in the UK is a good source with quick ship to the us. While you're at it you may want to see if there is any wobble in the steering rack bushings. You can order them as well.

    Thinking of selling CAV GT40

    I had issues with mine early on and it turns out it didn't have the correct O rings on the drier fittings. You might start there.

    Covid19 vaccine- report your progress

    Wife and I just received the Pfizer 3rd jab booster. Wife had a little site soreness and nothing else. Like the second shot, I had some shot arm lymph node underarm swelling that was uncomfortable for a day but noticeable for the better part of a week. No fever or anything like the fatigue with...

    Covid19 vaccine- report your progress

    Wife and I received Pfizer #2. First the good news. Surprisingly there was almost no wait at the county facility and we were in and out in 30 minutes including the post vaccine wait (in case any serious reactions occur). It is amazingly well organized and those administering were terrific. The...

    Fuel Tank Liner

    Interesting video and I'd see that this type of application would be great for aircraft. My concern with it would be it's ability to take a crash impact. I don't think it would deform like a fuel bladder could and possibly fail in a big way during a crash situation.

    Tell everyone every week that you are surviving this COVID19. Just add your name to the list once a week and each of us will know if you are alive.

    Me and the Mrs are still here. We've had Pfizer #1 and waiting for #2. We had a little soreness and fatigure the next day but no worse than a regular flu shot. Sadly, Covid took my brother at Christmas. He was notified he was exposed along with his wife at a friends home and they subsequently...
