AVOID HEAT SOAK WITH DEI

Both performance and factory fuel injectors can be at risk of vapour-lock due to hot fuel or heat soak resulting in a rough idle, slow starting, stalling or other potential serious engine problems.

DEI has solved the problem with its Fuel Injector Reflective Heat Covers that reflect direct and radiant heat away from the injectors. Cooler fuel injectors will perform more efficiently and offer a more consistent throttle response.

The covers are made from high-temperature rated glassfibre material bonded to a heat-reflective aluminised material. DEI’s Fuel Injector Heat Covers can be used on most engine configurations that utilise factory or aftermarket fuel More >

INSULATION FOR CARBS FROM WEBCON

Effective heat insulation is essential with any downdraft carburettor installation.

If heat is allowed to rise through the manifold and reach the carburettor, it is likely that heat-soak will occur, which will lead to poor hot starting.

Webcon has announced the introduction of its own range of carburettor heat insulators.

Superbly produced, using the latest laser cutting technology to ensure outstanding levels of accuracy, the new range is manufactured entirely in the UK and is available for the following models of Weber carburettor:

TYRE SPINNING

Static wheel balancing. The old fashioned way. Perhaps not recommended for super-wide modern wheels and tyres, but still, a valid method for the narrower wheels and tyres fitted to many kit and classic cars.

Gunson has just introduced this simple to use static wheel balancer (part number 77162) letting you quickly and easily balance your wheels in the home workshop or garage. Static balancing ensures the tyre is balanced around its circumference, even as it deforms with speed, temperature and pressure. This reduces vibrations at high speed and enhances tyre tread life. Particularly suited to crossply and bias-belted tyres.
