Re: Winter projects

You probably already know this but Holley now own MSD and I think Mallory. I'm running an eight stack arrangement on the the Hawk (yet to be road tested). I've used the upper tank feed / breather as the return line for the fuel system. I've added a breather into the short filler neck. As the tank i...

I have a MSD Atomic sitting on my desk :). It's basically the same system with less fancy features...
I know several people running that system with success. To run it right, do some research in the forums, e.g a absolute leak free exhaust system is a must.
How did you get on with this?

Re: Winter projects

Looks like there is a new guy in town, doesn't need a return line and doesn't need to scallop out the web on the inlet manifold!

Re: Wanted - spinners and steering wheel for IVA

Hi Tim,
I used the MGB wheel off my donor car. I had to make an interface adaptor to fit to the Cobra boss, but it works a treat. The horn push, isn't connected and there's no symbol on it to cause the tester a concern. It also adds a soft and padded element to the centre of the wheel.

The only difference with the engine not running is the fly wheel and clutch aren't spinning. You might need to split the engine and box to make sure everything is still tight. Plenty of possible causes for clutch judder. I always use blue loctite or Arp thread sealant on clutch and flywheel fastenin...

As to the boss, technically you are right and if you follow the manual you are correct but it does seem to be t...

Re: Another new member

Hello Allan, Welcome aboard. The only things to consider are that A, Gerrys waiting list is around 15-18 months and B, all options are possible but if you go "off piste" things become a little more tricky and potentially may end up costing a fair bit more. Cars need to be built to a standard to pass...
