    UK: Proposed changes to emissions

    All (especially UK), Please read the items in the link and please put forward your view. In a nutshell, it looks as though the emissions relaxation for our kit/replica cars is being proposed to be withdrawn. It means you'd have to meet current emissions. I am also reading it that it may...

    Oil Sump Gasket

    Need some advice (again) from more experienced builders. When rebuilding the engine the other week, I had a moment and ended up taking the sump off, as in a moment of self-induced panic, I thought I hadn't done something (but had). Instead of the standard rubber/cork 4 piece seal, I have...

    Oil Pump Driveshaft Washer

    I've asked the question in my build thread, but incase you don't click on it... I've, ahem, mislaid the washer for the driveshaft on the oil pump. Munroe's book says it is a Tinnerman washer? Does anyone know what size I should be searching for, or a suitable alternative (in the UK)...

    Can I repair this?

    So I have messed up big time this morning :cry: I was drilling the new coolant holes in the block to match the heads and have managed to misalign slightly and have drilled through into the oil gallery. Can I weld or similar over the top of this, as it is only between the coolant passage and...

    FS EU Springs Retainers Locks

    Knew I had forgotten something... I have decided that I am going to put in the recommended springs/retainers for my Comp Cams cam rather than what came with my heads; someone will probably tell me that these would be fine, but I have the new springs now. These springs have never been run...

    Woodruff/Crankshaft key question

    The crank I have got from Frank appears to have 3 slots for a woodruff key. This appears consistent having looked at other Ford Racing 302 cranks that they have this (weirdly not the Boss crank). Does anyone know if this utilises a special key, or do you just put in 1/2/3 smaller keys? It is...

    Coolant Leak

    I've just got the point where I am putting coolant and oil into the car. Ignoring the bit where I had undone some bolts on the timing cover and forgotten to do them up when messing with alternator installs... I think I have a leak/seepage at the heads at the front and on both sides. I've...
