TESTING, TESTING, 1-2; 1-2…

Ideal for both the tool cabinet and the glovebox, this handy automotive fuse tester from Gunson (part no. 77121) quickly and conveniently checks for blown fuses.

The adjustable pins allow it to be used on mini, standard and maxi-sized automotive fuses. If the fuse is ‘good’ the LED illuminates. If the fuse needs replacing then the reverse of the tester is used to unclip and remove it.

Terrific value and available now for a typical price of £10.42 but remember to check your local supplier for the best prices and special offers.

DOWN THE LINE

Viper Performance has just introduced a new service. They will now make bespoke stainless steel braided hydraulic lines to exact customer specifications.

MINI OIL PRODUCTION

All classic Mini oil pumps are not created equal! Almost all Mini pumps available today have the same design capacity, but the problem is the lack of precise manufacturing.

Most factories in their quest for production volume have sacrificed precision, but Mini Spares has now restored that precision with their range of special oil pumps. They are CNC-machined from alloy billets with sintered internals and assembled to very exacting standards.

These close tolerance pumps produce consistently high oil pressure even at high rpms (10-litre per minute at 1000rpm). Spare parts are available for this pump and the back plate has an ‘O’ More >

WINTER WARMERS

Dedicated to improving comfort and safety in the workshop, Mac Tools adds a trapper hat and a training shoe to its growing clothing range.

For those planning to replace their winter head-wear, Mac Tools now offers a new trapper-style hat to complement its recently introduced cold-weather glove. The new hat, called the Trapper Hat II, adopts the traditional trapper design with tie-down ear flaps and a flexible peak, and features enhanced warmth and comfort via a generous layer More >

STOP THAT LOTUS!

Italian brake company Tarox has released a beautifully-engineered bespoke braking kit to enhance the stopping performance of all Mk2 Lotus Elise models and their associated derivatives, like the Exige.

The kit has been designed and manufactured in Tarox’s state-of-the-art Italian factory and has been created from a ‘clean sheet’ brief to allow the firm’s engineers to develop the balance of enhanced dynamics with superb aesthetics. Based around a 310mm billet-machined disc and aluminium bell combination.

That pursuit of light weight has also clearly been at the forefront during the construction of the kit, too. Despite being considerably larger than the OEM set-up More >

EASY STARTING

The MGB was originally fitted with an extremely heavy and ponderous inertia starter motor.

Things have moved on quite a bit since those days and now Edge can offer a 1.4kw gear reduction starter that combines light weight (3.2kg) with high torque, faster cranking and lower current draw.

The Edge starter will fit MGBs with three synchro gearboxes and all MGAs and has a retail price of £239.40 inc VAT.
