    Rear support hoop upper shock/spring mounts

    Has anyone got any good photos to share that show how the original shock mounts were done. It would be great if you could share the chassis number featured in the photo. I realise that this area was continually evolving over the life of the chassis. A photo of the early ones that had the 1”...

    Bearing puller

    Think I need one of these. I need to get some rear wheel hubs and drive flanges. Currently don’t have one of these and I’m thinking that something like this would be a good addition to the tool box. This one is probably just a common import item, are these normally ok? Any recommendations...

    4 piston callipers & 15” wheels

    Just curious what people have used. I picked up a set of Porsche 996 callipers which are Brembo Mono-block callipers however I seem to have run into a stumbling block when it comes to fitting a disc in them. They use a 61mm deep pad on the front, consequently I have been unable to find a 2 piece...

    Gurney Weslake heads availability/reproduction

    Are Gurney Weslake heads available as either old stock or a modern reproduction. I was looking at some of the old photos and the port angles and the resultant angle of the intake runners I find quite a striking feature of the engine bay. I am curious to know if something similar is available...

    Rotating pictures - Dropbox

    This is annoying me. When I view them on my PC they are orientated correctly, and when I post them in the forum they are rotated. Anyone else having the same issues. Probably "picnic" related (Problem in chair not in computer) Ryan

    WTD : expired Avon CRzz 225 front tyres

    Looking for a set of these for setting things up whilst I am building. No point in having new rubber sitting there getting hard whilst I work out what I'm doing. Already have some scrap 295s for the rear. If anyone is turfing out some fronts around Melbourne that would be great. Keep...

    Ryans Group Ten GT40 build - Body 5.

    Well, I figure I better start one of these, else I will just fill Kaspa's and Dan's build threads. I suppose I have been working on it for around 12 months, but most of that time has involved getting the body molds sorted out, building rotisseries for the molds so that gravity can be used to...

    Synchros on the output or input shaft ?

    Is there a theoretical advantage to having the majority of the synchros on the input shaft or the output shaft? I’ve looked at the exploded diagrams posted for the ZF as well as the Porsche manuals, and noticed the differences. Will a box with one or the other produce quicker and more reliable...

    Is it better to have the Input shaft above or below the pinion output shaft on a transaxle? Guess it will depend on - Sump depth, - Transaxle height - Height of output shafts - Plunge depth on CV’s - Ground effects, venturi and diffuser considerations I’m thinking that from a handling point...

    Hi all I am in Melbourne Australia, so some of you will no doubt know that we have some crazy regulations to get passed. I’m not at a stage where I can build as yet, more doing research for the moment, I was just wondering what the latest regs are, and weather I might have missed something...
