    Cable shifter out of adjustment

    Howdy folks, we recently had to pull the RBT ZF out of our SPF MKI for a slave cylinder leak. After reassembly it will no longer stay in third. It’s a cable shifter and we removed only the cable mounting plates and did not touch the adjustment threads. All the other gears are there but third...

    We had a RBT ZF slave cylinder failure on our P/2264. Pulled the transaxle, turns out the bleeder hose had warn through right were it passed through the bell housing.

    Why I no longer post in the Paddock

    I have recently been contacted by several folks here on the fourm, asking if I am OK, wondering why I am absent from the discussions...

    Very Fast Gentlemen

    These men were my heros. I'm proud to say I saw all of these Champions race, although one was a "Historic" race. By my count 19 World Championships.
