Re: The loooonnng term EK 2 door project

I know you've got enough on your plate as it is with this one, but just a thought. The curved rear window sills made me think more of the chebbys. Wonder if the EK tailights could be made to hinge, and the fuel filler be hidden, like the 55's, 56's or 57's? The 57 is shown below, perhaps the hardest...

Spoke to Head Stud Development yesterday. The Repco head is nearing completion - general tidy up, sort out the multiple spring seat depths, new exhaust valves, additional shaft supports, new springs, retainers and collets, install and fettle rollie rockies. Should be done by the end of the month. On...

Re: 2024 33rd Annual FB/EK Nationals

Well done sir.

Reminds me of the old stories of Bathurst, where the works teams would "borrow" parts from the general public paddock parking to keep the racers going.

Re: Harv's FED thread

That's a very long and lonely shaft Harv The Norman shaft is about 4” too short. I need to get it cut off, and a new shaft added. Similar job to what one of the Taswegian humpy boys did not long ago on a Type 65. I have a bloke locally that I think can do it. It will need a plumber block bearing to...
