    Help identifying a transaxle

    Todd: My first choice for gearbox would probably be a ZF, but looking at current prices I think at this point I would go with a Renault box. Some good ratios available and relatively strong gearbox that does not break the bank. I don't know what your intention is for the car but I can...

    Kaspa's scratch build GT40

    John: Great story and looks like a really good start. I can tell you I know the feeling minus that extra long drive. As Randy said we have the same deal here with the Deer population, more killed by cars and trucks than hunters, and at certain times of the year (Fall) one can't take a 5...

    Tornado GT40 in Texas

    Bob: Great bit of investigation on the radiator fan installation. I have always said that mounting fans thru the radiator is a no no...the core is just not made to support weight and handle it along with vibration. I have seen many factory radiators ruined with those aftermarket coolers and...

    Solid clutch pedal

    Brett: What Neville said happened to me...wrong pushrod on the slave to fork...2 pumps and a solid pedal....the piston hit the internal snap ring in the slave. There should only be approx. 3/4" (19mm) travel on the release bearing so it is very easy to mis-measure....sorry you had to...

    Aluminum Panels

    Simon: The easiest way to cut, and the cleanest would be a shear....probably would be cost prohibitive for you to get a shear big enough just for the job at hand. A plasma cutter would work very well, and a 30 amp 40 amp machine will cut 1/2" (13 mm) and of course anything thinner. The...

    My Scratch Built Project

    Thanks Randy....You are very observant... Yeah there's a bleeder at the top...I always weld in bungs even if I don't need them, it is so much easier to remove a plug and bleed from the high spots when it is already there...sure beats the alternative. I also have 2 bleeders at the top of the...

    My Scratch Built Project

    Thanks Dave...Looks like we may be finishing up close together. Woody....Bill's and my measurements reflect the differences in chassis, gearbox type, gearbox/engine height, and whatever muffler you are using so maybe it would be easier to just fit the bodywork temporarily and make a...

    RBT-ZF Mystery part

    Dave: Its been a while since I have been inside my ZF but that looks really close to a pin that would align the housings on the gearbox...but I would check it out...and while you are at it go buy a lottery ticket because you are very lucky that didn't get between two gears on the mainshaft or...

    Insulation for your tunnel and more

    Darrin...Terry I use that insulation in some of the flares we build....basically a big box that burns off the methane at landfills, and other scrubbing devices. I don't think there is an adhesive that will hold that because of the nature of the simply pulls apart...

    Headlamp covers

    Jim: Really good on the covers and side screens...did you need to heat the polycarbonate appreciably? I have tried a bit of this work and seem to get my material to blister or go cloudy so obviously my heat is incorrect but I do have a lab oven at my shop that will go to 300c so its a matter...

    Renato's GT40 MkI Coyote

    Renato: Nice is your up front spacing? Most of the problems I have encountered were up front with plumbing and belt(s), with a little bit of interference with the gearbox in the bottom rear, but not much. It would be interesting to see a photo from inside the cab...otherwise...
