Re: Silverstone prize

Is MotorTrend a magazine? I thought it was a subsciption channel. I have a sub, at around $3.99 a month and there are some excellent TV programmes on there. RoadKill, Hot Rod Garage, Roadkill Garage, Engine Masters, faster with Finnegan etc. All excellent. Has deffinately kept me sane during lockdown

Re: Speedo drive Cosworth T5 gearbox

It saves a lot of messing about with custom made cables Its Scott Drake part n...

Re: Covid Crusties

I had no problem with full lockdown. I'm a miserable anti social sod anyway. I was still getting up and going to work (alone) and popping out on my bike for a few miles each evening (alone), and was free to potter around in the allotment as much as i wanted. The shops and streets were empty, the roa...

Re: Ford 302 “cobra” sumps

The 'Cobra powered by Ford' one may be one of a batch made incorrectly with an increased radius on the rear seal surface. These leave a gap when fitted between the seal and the cast sump, which has to be filled with sealer. I have one of these, and it's tricky to get a good fit, always leaving the ...

Re: Exhaust design.

I have slip joints on mine, with springs to hold the pipes to the down pipes, rather than clamps. This allows a little movement and expansion. Although I'm yet to get any serious use out of the car (cheers DVLA) i did the same on my series Land Rover V8 and thats worked out fine over the years

Re: Jag IRS U/J's

I'm not sure if they can be done with the hubs still attached. they press out quite easily though and if the end float is OK at the moment, then reassembling with the same number of shims on each side, should be OK. I got my UJs from Denis Welch Motorsport https://www.bighealey.co.uk/jaguar/axle-5/h...
