ONE MAN … WHAT?

This new one-man brake and clutch bleeding tool has an automatic operation that makes it possible to bleed your brakes without any help.

Simply fill the container and pump (working pressure 2bar/30psi), while the reservoir holds 2.5-litres of fluid, enough to bleed the entire system, suitable for use with ABS systems. The 42mm cap suits most European vehicles.

The product wears an RRP of £45.94 inc VAT and is available from 01227 792 792 or via www.rallydesign.co.uk ENDS.

FEEL THE POWER

The new 20v Series has been designed to suit users from DIY enthusiasts to the professional. These body-only tools offer a one-battery-fits-all solution with a choice of 20V lithium batteries ranging from 2Ah to 4Ah, meaning costs can be kept down whilst quality remains high. Quality, stylish, lightweight tools with durable composite housing and a soft grip make them comfortable and easy to use.

The models are available to purchase individually, but in order to achieve the biggest saving of over £140.00 – go for Sealey’s five-tool combo.

The five-tool deal consists of:

SPEEDY SPEEDLINE

Great news for fans of classic rallying and motorsport everywhere as Speedline has decided to bring the classic Type 2013C six-spoke wheel back to the market – a rim made simply iconic during the heyday of the WRC in the nineties on cars the like Subaru Impreza and Toyota Corolla in both WRC and Group A guises.

For years these original wheels have been changing hands for big money amongst competitors, who value both their ability and authenticity. Owners who wanted to keep their car period perfect for historic events have long been requesting the reinstatement of this wheel to the More >

RETURN OF THE PROVA COUNTACH

Arguably the most successful of the eighties crop of Lamborghini Countach replicas, the Prova marque has returned to production.

The men behind the project were former Panache Cars founder, Paul Lawrenson and Peter Jackson, an air conditioning engineer, who had been working in Saudi Arabia when he first saw the Countach and became immediately smitten but couldn’t afford the asking price of £40,000 for a new one.

When he returned to the UK he teamed-up with Ged Dunbar. Paul Lawrenson fixed the moulds and he and Jackson started Prova Designs, using a Lee Noble-made chassis, a spaceframe from 16g with Ford Granada More >

WONDER OIL

I’m a big fan of the French product, Owatrol Oil, which is a superb paint conditioner and rust inhibitor.

Its versatility is its strength and it can be used as a standalone product or added to gloss paint which gives it a Downing Street-style mirror-like shine, helping the paint to flow beautifully.

As a rust inhibitor, it’s one of the very best, penetrating the rusted surface, driving out moisture and air and is ideal for use on chassis as well as machinery, engine parts, trailers and tanks.

Oh, and if you condition paint with it, Owatrol Oil prevents peeling.

Various sizes are available with More >

‘BURR’ NECESSITIES

This Universal Deburring Set from Laser Tools (part number 7291) is ideal for engineers, mechanics, plumbers or any tradesman that requires various deburring tools. It includes four different blades packaged into one handy tool.

Two curved blades are included, ideal for curved and straight edge work. The black passivated blade is manufactured from SUJ2 high-carbon chromium alloy steel, for extreme wear resistance – it is especially suitable for steel, aluminium and plastic. The brown passivated blade is HSS (high-speed steel), its hardness making it suitable for brass, cast iron and stainless steel work. These two blades are mounted onto the tool More >

MAKE IT EASIER

 

We’ve all worked in or pit or under a ramp and need to be organised or need extra light, removing a starter motor is a classic example.

This new creeper from Rally Design keeps components, nuts, bolts and tools in one place instead of scattered across the workshop floor. The four castors are much more stable than three castor models sold elsewhere.

It also features two large and four small storage compartments, while the powerful pod light with magnetic base, can be used independently of the tray.

It has a useful size of 400 x 430 x 120mm and would make an ideal More >

LIQUID TECHNOLOGY AT FIFTY!

Castrol GTX, one of the world’s most well-known engine oils, celebrates fifty years of production this year.

The brand has been at the forefront of engine oil innovation since its introduction in 1968. Castrol GTX was initially created with liquid tungsten technology to meet the sophisticated needs of new engine developments. In those fifty years, over 50-billion litres (that’s a lot of oil!) have been sold worldwide.

The ‘liquid engineering’ TV adverts, amazingly dating back to 1983, are firm favourites of mine.

According to Castrol, today GTX protects over 100-million cars across the globe, at any one time and looking into the immediate More >

PROPER INNOVATION

Innovators West made its name making some of the best harmonic dampers on the market. Innovators West is more than just balancers though as the company makes camshaft belt drives, supercharger pulleys, drive pulley conversion kits for GM LS engines, and other components, all made in the USA and available at Summit Racing.

The design uses a small amount of fluid inside that acts as a lubricant and dissipates More >
