    Looking for a GT 40

    Like I said, I have an eye problem. My ERA is also a Mk !, built in 1992. So I do have an eye problem, but i don't worry about dirty glasses!

    Looking for a GT 40

    Rob, I purchased a used ERA Mk II about five years ago , a fantastic car . . . after I got it sorted out rebuilt ZF, installed stiffer valve springs on the 302, Avon tires and more. Assistance from the guys at ERA was great. With that said, I lost my eyesight in Feb., but it's gradually coming...

    Could easily be one of us.

    This brings back memories of spinning through the lights at 210 at the Salt Flats. Fortunately for me, the car stayed on all four. Unlike this track, we had a lot of runoff room.

    Book recommendations ? - building a 302

    TOM You're correct about sloppy assembly. That's why I show and detail ckecking clearances more than once coupled with any needed machining operations such as valve-to-piston clearances, bearing clearance, ring fit and on and on. Got to do that cam-timing check, too. I then show doing a...

    Kidney Needed

    Doug: I imagine the wait can be unnerving, but don't give up. And from what I've learned, matches are easier that they were due to newer anti-rejection medications. Tom

    Kidney Needed

    Ron: Thanks for the response and information. One detail I forgot to mention is that the donor can't be older than 60, which disqualifies me. I guess that's a good news/bad news situation. Tom

    I just recieved a note from John Horsman, author of Racing In The Rain and John Wyer's right-hand man during the Gulf GT40, Mirage and Porsche 917 glory days of the '60's. In the note, among some car stuff, John mentioned that he is on a waiting list for a kidney transplant. His kidneys were...

    Fresh off the presses--Small-Block Engine Book

    John: I sure am glad your 289 started the first time you cranked it . . . as it should've. As for the SBF Racing book covering 289s, being that it's about modern racing small-block Fords, I concentrate on the new race oriented pieces. As you say, the principles are the same for all SBFs...
