    Front uprights

    I supplied The original uprights that Richard Guest modified to make patterns for the castings that John Wisher used to make his uprights. Out of the deal I received a pair of blank castings which I haven`t been able to get machined yet. The castings I supplied were Gardner Douglas like the...

    Wire vs Halibrand Wheels

    With the Halibrand wheels it looks like a race car but with wires it looks like a nice road car. Both are great but what look do you prefer?

    302 pistons using 289 length rods

    I want pistons to suit my engine but not sure where to get them. I`m using standard stroke 302 with 289 length rods ( Boss302 crank and rods ) that I`ve had for years and want to use. I will be using Victor Junior type heads so flat top pistons are what I need I think? Does anyone know where I`m...

    Water proof GT40?

    No drips or runs, that`s waterproof to me. I`m sure it wouldn`t be as dry as James Bond`s Lotus if it was completely submerged but good enough for me.

    I should add that I still got wet when I opened the door to get out but was bone dry up to that point.

    UN1 CWP upgrade

    I don`t know if its been mentioned but the gearbox casing has been known to flex slightly allowing bearings to move as far as I can remember.. I wouldn`t really put lots of power through one. I`d use a Porsche box instead, given the choice.

    UN1 rod change query

    Tell everyone every week that you are surviving this COVID19. Just add your name to the list once a week and each of us will know if you are alive.

    Mounting UN1 upside down

    Not sure what happened their but back to breathers and I lost a lot of oil originally so I opened a channel to the bellhousing in a similar way to how Renault did it and its been fine ever since Mine then goes to a catch tank which drains back into the box just to be sure. I did have it piped to...

    Mounting UN1 upside down

    Hi guys, sorry for lack of replies/contact but I struggle with computers at the best of times and I have been busy with other stuff as well. I just wanted to mention the breather in the gearbox as it is potentially frustrating to sort out. I originally had it in the wrong position and although...
