Re: Family Affair Ek Ute

Yep, unfortunately if you cant do this sort of work yourself then its open wallet time. This work is laborious and not for the uneducated in metal work, hence the cost. Usually the lower legs, front bottom cross brace under the radiator and the wing sections that bolt to the body are the culprits. $...

Re: Project 2.

Looks nice Brett, I must admit for ease of tuning and keeping it there you can't beat a holley. If you go webbers it can be painfull to keep the tune, although you wont see the full potential of the 6 without them. Looking at the picture it floods me with memories, and yes i ended up with the webber...

Re: Chev EK

No oversized bushes that i can find, would have been simpler ! Anyway it worked out, i couldnt get the bush in as far as i liked but for now it will be ok. The Torana front is good and a nice ride but the issue is the alignment. There is no room to use spacers on the top arms unless you cut holes in...

Re: Chev EK

Well if it doesn't rain it hails !!! Ive been driving around a bit and had the joy of the gearbox spit out fluid, lokar dipstick with 2 orings, sloppy as !! I pulled it out and machined it down to suit the original type seal, hope this is fixed ! Sorry no photos. Whilst i was at it i looked for a sq...

Re: Neil's FB Station Wagon

If over 1000kgs in standard trim then, Original mass (kg) x 3.00 = max. capacity in cc. But an engineer can overide it if they have the balls. Greg Yeah , FB sedan is 1120kg, x 3 = 3360cc so my supercharged 202 JJJUUUUUSSSSTTTTTT scrapes in - dunno how you would go with a 3800cc ???? BAT53 was build...

Its a vented oil catch can, the idea is to catch any blowby oil instead of dumping on the track out of the breather.

Re: Angry grey

Yes that would be Mr Barrow, When i starting in group N racing he was one of the guys i used to compete with, his father raced it for many years before that and the family was super friendly and we had lots of fun times. The car for what it is, is very quick and Phil drives the wheels off it. It was...

Re: Neil's FB Station Wagon

Yeah, great work Neil. The sills are strange, i had 2 NOS ones and they were slightly different to each other. The theory was the people assembling the bodies would use the best fitting parts for each vehicle and the stockpile at the end is now what we have as NOS. The bodies are all over the shop f...
