    Anyone with an "in" @ ARP?

    I'm looking for some 12 point, flanged head nuts with an M11 x 1.0 thread. Yes, I know it's a weird thread size; what can I say, it's a Ferrari...... The standard Ferrari nuts are regular hex heads, and I can get these, but would prefer 12 point heads if possible. One tech from ARP told me...

    Help With a Leaky BSPP Fitting??

    I have a leak in a high pressure hydraulic circuit at a BSPP male plug fitting. This plug is the type that has a machined recess for the o-ring, and there was a square cross section o-ring there. It looked flatter than it should have, so I replaced it with a round section o-ring from a Dowty...

    RSS Feed Support?

    Recently I "discovered" Google Reader which is a handy program that goes out and collects RSS feeds from news services, forums, blogs, etc. that one subscribes to, and displays them on a single page. In layman's terms, if you like to visit 4-5 forums a day and check for new posts, this program...

    High speed flanged coupling required

    Not exactly a GT40 question, but is related to power transmission. I'm looking for a high speed coupling to mate two 5/8" or 3/4" half shafts together, and it would be equipped with a mounting flange that a gear or pulley could bolt to. Has to be good for 10K rpm, and able to transmit...

    Engine Oil Flow Requirement

    I'd like to hear comments/opinions about an engine's "real" oil flow and pressure requirements? Some builders reckon a 30 GPM dry sump pump is bypassing around 2/3 of its flow at high RPM and pressure. Too, the old rule of thumb of 10psi per 1000 RPM isn't holding anymore. Apparently some...

    F1 Ignition Systems

    Just curious what ignition technology is favored in F1 and other high end racing these days? Back around 2000 the F1 teams were pretty evenly split between capacitive discharge and inductive (transistor). Each has its strengths. Does anyone know what's being favored now?

    Stainless/Chrome braided sleeving?

    Anyone tried stainless, chrome or mylar type sleeving for dress-up of their engine bay wiring? The sleeving coming out of the DOHC valley of Hasselgren's Toyota Atlantic motor is similar, but not quite what I'm describing. Still looks hot though.
