    ZF Easy In & Out Modification

    I wanted to be able to slide the ZF out of my CAV while leaving the bellhousing, engine and starter in place. For those of you who have been there, you know that the ZF gets five allen head bolts securing it to the bellhousing from the outside, but it is the two additional allen heads that have...

    CAV Safety Alert

    Bob: Here is a picture of the CAV fuel cell cavity. The problem associated with getting it in and out that Veek discussed has to do with the square tube bracing seen at the top of the cavity. The cell fits fine into the cavity, but the two 1.5" raised bungs at the rear are to tall. Seen from...

    Picking my GT40

    In the 60s I fell in love with the GT40 shape because of a car built in a local garage in the Philadelphia suburbs. One of the top guys in the garage built it for himself. It was outrageous, and we found every excuse to go over to this little performance shop to hang around the car. It was a V8...
