Ford parts meisters Burton Power has announced that it can now offer Ford Type 9 Five Speed Gearboxes (also referred to as a ‘Type N’ gearbox in some workshop manuals) with a 2.98:1 ‘long’ first gear.

The complete gearboxes have been reconditioned to Ford OE Standards using the GBT9200 long first gear conversion kit.

This partial gear kit is designed to lower the ratio of first gear from a short 3.65:1 to a much more useable 2.98:1. The upgrade includes a brand new mainshaft first gear and a used layshaft cluster that has been modified to work with the new More >

The craftsmanship of MOMO’s artisans has been taken to a new level with the introduction of the Trofeo Heritage Gear Knob.

The Trofeo is a triumph of extraordinary woodworking in which mahogany and beechwood have been combined, layered and expertly sanded along the whole body of the grip area. The result is a complex but harmonious game of contrasts between colours and materials. The crown jewel of this shift knob is the vintage tobacco leather top featuring the stamped ‘MOMO’ Heritage logo to ensure no one is left guessing about the pedigree of this unique product. The Trofeo has been ergonomically More >

I was talking to Scamp Motor Company boss, Andrew MacLean this week and was pleased to hear that business in Scamp-land is very good at present with a book full of orders that are keeping Andrew busy.

The car pictured here is called Thunderchild 2 and has been built for a chap called Mark Nicholson to replace his aging championship-winning Autotest Scamp Mk2.

Andrew’s new design from Mark’s brief instructions. … nothing hanging out the back, adjustable height rear suspension for fully-forward mounted coil-overs, which are the same shape as the old Scamp Mk2 and lighter.

So here he is… Thunderchild 2 super More >


I’m a big fan of Essex-based car care specialists, Killer Brands and in particular, their Winners line up of polishes, waxes and much else besides.

I’m addicted to keeping my cars clean – and those of friends and family too, for that matter (when times allow!) – and a product that I’ve been having a lot of success with recently is Winners Satin Interior Detailer.

I particularly like the fact that it leaves a nice satin finish while doing what it says – cleaning your interior trim – and it doesn’t leave your car’s inside looking like that of a Bucharest taxi, More >


If you are rebuilding or modifying a Mini (or other A Series) engine be aware that some, so-called, ‘genuine Rover gasket sets’ can be poor in quality or have incorrect parts.

The problem was so significant that Mini Spares decided to put together its own correct gasket set. The original Payen gaskets served as a template, but modern KLINGER super gasket material (as used on some parts of the MPI twin point injection engines) was used.

This dual-fit multi-piece selection of KLINGER upgraded engine block gaskets will fit any early or A-Plus engine. It is suitable for road or race and will More >
