    New Holman Moody GT40s, What's going on?

    I wouldnt say that's entirely correct, since the original Mk2' chassis tubs were made by Abbey panels (not tennant) and FAV shipped the tub numerous other parts as a kit to the US for assembly, clearly not the case with these cars. Still a lovely thing though

    Fitting a sniper efi

    Strongly advise you don't go for Efi that is self learning. I had nightmares with a similar Fitech system. Fueling is straight forward , i used a low pressure facet feeding into a swirlpot with a high pressure pump inside. The long and short of it is, you need a perfect sealing exhaust and a...

    Electric water pump and digital controller question

    I have the pump up front like your's and the sensor in the radiator pipes up front also. i have an additional water temperature gauge in the manifold and its very close to the pump sensor reading. I would say put the sensor where its most conveniant it will make little difference. I also have...

    SPF 2366 Build

    Very nice work. Yes when you do the install yourself you discover lots of horrors that you just wouldn't do yourself. Another area worth foam filling is the main bulkhead. The large circular holes leak into the cockpit, i filled this with closed cell foam and my cockpit stays quite cool. Other...

    SPF - Wheel bearing advise required

    Yes , the fact they have apparently failed after so few miles would indicate to me an issue with the tolerances on hub or spline, would you agree ?

    SPF - Wheel bearing advise required

    I was looking at the sleeves Bill on this thread: Sprocket hubs failure | GT40s . I havent seen anyone fit normal bearings only larger taper bearings. Would be a better solution though.

    SPF - Wheel bearing advise required

    Hi JP. Yes i think i found the number of the bearing on an earlier thread. I can replace the bearing, but i think the chances of a fault with the bearing are quite low, and much more likely to be a faulty with the design or the machining of the hub or shaft. I think whilst i go to the trouble...

    Advice Please, Which Order for Sealant Drilling & Pop Rivets

    I personally would not use rivets on any panel that isn't load bearing. Just not necessary with todays bonding agents that are so powerful you can't remove them afterward. I would consider also having some panels easy removeable for access, so would use rivnut panels onto closed cell foam strips...

    Fitech 30003 on a 302

    I had one and had terrible problems, eventually went back to a Holley carb. The Holley Sniper gets equal criticism in the various US forums. The problem is "self learning" is a bit of myth and to get them to work you need it set up on a Dyno. You have to set target AFR's for the system to...

    Electric water pump and digital controller question

    Yes i have the EWP150 and digital controller. It works extremely well, very efficient. I also bought the water pump blanking plate/casting that they sell for the windsor engine which made it very neat. Not sure if they do a coyote one but worth checking. At first i did without a digital...
