Titanium in various grades and alloys is available as sheet, round tube and pipe and mainly used for process equipment in chemical plants. Welding of titanium is a very specialized area. Titanium must be...

    The Trip[ Down Under...

    The greatest country in the world. But they also love their speed cameras (every policeman has at least 2). If the country, the weather and the people could be combined with the rules of the Autobahn, it would be perfect.

    Re: GT40\'s 40th Anniversary at the Nurburgring High Ande 4o, The idea is excellent. Would also be great if as many GT40 replicas as possible would be there. As to your suggested date, the Formula 1 GP of Europe will be held on the Nuerburgring over the weekend May 28-30. For me,it's only 200...

    Chris Melia suggested to me that I should get a release bearing from a Ford Escort Mexico as it is narrower than my present one. Does anyone know where to get this from?

    Clutch slipping on my GTD

    Thanks for the advise so far - it is actually not restricted to people who drive red cars. Julian, I think my problem might be different to yours because the clutch cover is touching the release lever above the pivoting point.
