    Engine & gearbox id

    Sim This is how I see it. I would be be looking for the following engine block casting numbers. C6FE-6015-B 289 installed on earlier GT40s similar to a beefed up HiPo 289 0-XF-136505 which is a 289 used in late 1966 GT40 through to the end of the JWA campaign using Copper seals. Later bored...

    Good news this week for a change.:):) When we installed alloy fuel tanks and we wanted small footprint senders in the fuel safe foam so decided to try modern VDO senders. The shortest VDO dip tube sender is sold at 150mm and we had to shorten these a little to fit the sloping bottom of the...

    original door lock release mechanism

    Steve, Good wishes o_O The chrome door release is fastened to the lever onto the door latch trigger with two short 2BA bolts. Some latch triggers have only one hole so drill a second hole matching the door release holes if it is missing. (the ones in my photo have a single hole) The whole latch...

    original door lock release mechanism

    Steve The lever is attached to the lever with two screws. You can also add a spring twixt the chrome lever and the latch frame to give a bit more tension. It's awkward but I hope this photo helps.

    Jimmymac & Alistair's Cars

    Hallo Markus, Yes indeed, we are using custom made HRBs. I don't believe that they were used originally. The car is a racer with a spare gearbox so the box will have regular changeovers and the original external slave / lever / rod / pin system is a bit too temperamental to setup and frankly...

    Original Mk1 Starter Motor

    Peter, No so special. Most folks have removed them and replaced them with something more reliable. Jac's recommendation is the way to go if you want the same type of starter with reliable crank power. There are custom shop guys out there doing this type of upgrade work including modifying core...

    Original Mk1 Starter Motor

    Hi Peter & Randy, Yes you are both correct with the piece shown. Make sure you get plenty of cranking power if you are buying one. This is an original three bolt one of mine. Note the XF part number and the orange paint.

    No thanks Andrew, presently we are happy with what we have. I am thinking of doing these later in bar stock alloy as the grey plastic ones crack and don't last long.

    GT/109 is on the block at Mecum and for some reason the write ups on the sale specifically mentioned the original Trico wiper in the restoration. Here is one of ours. I have sourced the replacement blades so there is no problem replicating the whole shebang.
