    Re: 037 Recreation

    B series Honda engines turn counter clockwise, but they are the only modern engines I know of with that configuration - there are probably various pre-war oddities as well.

    Re: Hawk Rear Brakes

    Common fitment is the old xj6/12/xjs. I think the Girling designation is 12/3.

    Re: Stratos Transformer seeking new home

    Paula,
    Sorry for your loss. While you are dealing with this you might as well tell everybody here what those Fiats are as there are a few fans of that marque here.

    Re: Spotted On The Daily Mail Site

    It's all a bit fishy because any original '64 Cobra would have been worth substantially more than 250k in 2014, on top of which there is the question of the chassis number which is fairly easy to...

  10. Re: So.................................................................who got it?

    I've got a 3.0l 24v 164 5 speed sitting here (down the road in Holywell) that you can have for what I paid (300) ten years ago. It would need a precautionary rebuild so maybe not ideal if you...

    Chassis with a SPY prefix (manufactured by Spyder Engineering '87 to '90) have a lighter cage structure than those made by Safety Devices (1990 on) to which the cert applies. These cages don't meet...

    Re: Transformer arrives in Colchester

    Cheap solution is to fit some sort of limiting strap; a droop limiting cable from lower spring pan to chassis or (depending on spring length) tie wrap the springs to lower and upper pans.

    You could always ring Spyder in Peteboro', they are still in business.

    Charade is a great little cicuit; I visited the circuit some 30 years ago when you could just drive straight on as minor public roads crossed it giving open access. Is that still the case?

    It's certainly possible to do as the 246 gearbox/sump layout is the same as the 308. On the early 308GTB the dual stage scavenge pump is in sump and the existing pressure stage is used. The only...
