Burton Power is now offering fully reconditioned Bosch electronic type distributor kits for the Ford SOHC Pinto engine, an engine used by the shed load in kitcars, of course.

The distributors are fitted with an integral electronic ignition module bolted to the distributor body. Each distributor has a modified advance curve to suit fast road/rally specification and is non-vacuum.

Each kit is supplied complete with constant energy coil and wiring harness (when using on vehicles fitted with a ballast resistor, the ballast must be by-passed to provide 12v at the coil).

The kits are supplied with a straight cap. The approximate static ignition More >


If you’re well organised and like to keep your tools neat, tidy and clean, then these two magnetic tool organisers are sure to appeal. Part number 7530 takes 34 different tools including bits, bit drivers, socket adaptors, universal joints, etc. Part number 7531 is a magnetic bit organiser that holds 43 different bits and adaptors, specifically designed for 10mm shank automotive bits.

Both organisers feature powerful magnets that hold the tools and bits securely but are also strong enough to More >


For over 40 years, the Weber Marelli crank sensor type SEN8D from Webcon has been the benchmark in terms of outstanding performance and an unbeatable price. However, as of November 2019, production in Italy ceased so they are now no longer available.

Webcon is thus delighted to announce that, following extensive testing, it has sourced a superb quality replacement for the ‘SEN8D’ and these are now available for immediate delivery.

The sensor is branded ‘Webcon’ to avoid confusion with non-Webcon-approved, unbranded versions and is available under a new part number: WSS075W.

Just like its predecessor it is extremely competitively priced at just £37.20 More >

Roller tips are probably the most important factor in reducing valve and guide wear when using modern performance camshafts.

Mini Spares has now produced its own Roller Tip Rocker Assembly for 1275cc big bore engines. The assembly features cradle type alloy rocker posts with an increased shaft size to improve rigidity and stronger EN24 adjuster screws with hexagonal head adjustment nuts.

Help reduce the heat in your engine bay with the Mishimoto Turbo Blanket.

One of the main drawbacks to a turbocharger is the massive amount of heat that it produces, which can lead to cooling issues depending on the placement.

With the combination of a volcanic lava rock outer layer and 96 per cent silica inner layer, the Mishimoto turbo blankets have no trouble keeping the heat from permeating throughout the engine bay.

Mishimoto’s turbo blanket’s interior is rated to 1260°C and can withstand up to 982°C of direct exterior heat. The blankets are available in a selection of sizes and also include More >

Here’s another interesting device from Laser Tools. The problem to solve: a fastener buried deep in the engine bay. It may be a pulley securing nut, a water pump mounting bolt or an A/C compressor adjustor.

You may just be able to get a spanner on it, but there’s definitely no room for a ratchet handle if you want to remove the fastener quickly. Reach for this new extension ratchet (part number 7655). It’s 340mm long and enables you to remotely ratchet off the fastener, using either a 3/8in or 1/4in drive ratchet handle.

Its length and super-slim profile allow you to More >
