For years, Weber 50DCO/SP carburettors have only been available as left-hand or right-hand units, with the outer throttle shaft ends blanked off.

This works well with a conventional distributor ignition system, but as mapped ignition systems have become more widely used, so the demand for a throttle position sensor fitment on the 50DCO/SP has grown.

In response to this demand Webcon has developed a new, unified 50DCO/SP that features throttle shaft at both ends of the carburettor and will allow fitment of a Webcon DCO/SP throttle position sensor kit. Part number 1965000700 can be used for LH or RH fitment, and is More >


Powerflex has just released a new suspension bush for the Caterham 7 de Dion rear suspension models, with or without a Watts linkage.

PFF8-201 Front lower wishbone bush uses a low friction design, while the polyurethane bush holds a low friction bearing that rotates around an accurately machined stainless sleeve.

This combination lets the wishbone pivot effortlessly, thus allowing the damper and spring to work without the added force generated by the original rubber bush loading up. These bushes have a retail price £95.52 inc VAT.

New from Rally Design is this impact wrench, which is unusual in that it offers 450Nm to release the most stubborn nut or bolt, but also tightens at 120Nm to avoid over-tightening or stripped threads.

The set includes two 4Ah lithium batteries, 16 sockets (metric 10-27mm and Imperial ½in-13/16in) plus extension bar, all impact quality.

It also includes a 72-tooth high-quality ratchet wrench and 72-tooth extendable ratchet wrench when hand leverage is required, priced as a set at £197.40 inc VAT.

A professional set, purpose-designed for speedy impact work, makes wheel changing so much less effort.

The company is based in Crook, County Durham, very close to the Teesdale and Wearsdale beauty spots and run by Steve Milburn, ably assisted by wife, Tammy and son, Luke, with the name ‘Speed 3’ coming from the fact there are three of them and they all like er, speed! Fair enough.

The SP3WT is available in 20 modules, which adds up More >
