This year marks the 70th birthday of the well-known British brand, Swarfega. Famous for its green hand-cleansing gel, it’s a business that’s been part of the fabric of everyday life for mechanics and technicians for generations.
Swarfega was launched during a momentous period of history, with much of the world still reeling from the effects of the Second World War. In the UK, 1947 started with the nationalisation of the coal industry to help fuel the re-building of Britain and ended with the future queen of the United Kingdom, Princess Elizabeth, marrying the Duke of More >

The springs lower the car by 20mm-25mm and are progressively wound and uprated although preserve the ride quality while helping ride More >
Burton Power now offer a cast aluminium replacement ‘Duratec-R’ cam cover that has been designed to fit all standard Ford 2-litre., 2.3-litre and 2.5-litre Duratec HE engines.
The cam cover can also be used on VVT Duratec engines but only when the variable valve timing gear has been removed. This item is for use with a Ford coil-pack and plug leads – coil-on-plugs cannot be used because of space limitations.
The cam cover is 65mm high, which will give a 2.3-litre or 2.5-litre Duratec engine the same overall height as a standard 2-litre engine with the original Ford cam cover. It comes More >
Forge Motorsport has released a high-quality CE-marked alloy jack that’s perfect for owners of lowered show or race vehicles, allowing them to lift their vehicles safely, without damaging sills or trims.
It’s hard to argue that a lowered car doesn’t look much better than one at standard height, but this new-found poise can introduce problems when trying to jack it up. With the sill height being so much lower, most standard jacks are too high to be able to slip under the vehicle.
With so many aggressive-looking cars on its own fleet, Forge sought to find the best quality jack, with the More >
