PLUG IT IN

New from Autosparks are these new bulkhead injection moulded plugs to suit Ford wiring harnesses.

Another useful service they offer is the reproduction of obsolete plugs and they can easily copy one of your existing plugs by 3D printing it. The plug is drawn and converted to a computer file and they print a button – just ‘loike’ magick!

Prices vary but the best bet is to get in touch via www.autosparks.co.uk or call them on 0115 949 7211 ENDS.

LIFE WITH THE LYONS. HAVE A COFFEE!

I not only love the restoration work carried out by the Lyons father and son team (Michael and David) at their very smart garage in County Clare, but I LOVE their style.

They’ve grasped the lifestyle aspect of what they do and like to have a bit of fun. In all seriousness, their range of coffee is first class. I’m well into their MG Beans! They’ve just added a load of new ones including BeansMW, DBean5, Javaguar Beans, Mercedes Beans, Mini Beans and the limited edition LG66 Beans. All are priced at €15.

GET IN THERE

Quite often access to a fastener is obstructed by another component, this could be on an engine, gearbox or perhaps behind the dashboard. You can just about get a hex (or Star® or spline) bit onto the fastener but not quite, and there is a danger of breaking the bit if you force it.

Laser Tools to the rescue with this Ball-End Socket Bit Set (part number 8048) which offers a comprehensive twenty-piece set of long, ball-ended socket bits in metric hex, Star and spline profiles. The ‘ball’ design means that the bit will fit snugly at up to a 25° More >

CHARGE CARD

Buying for the tools and machinery fanatic in your life can be tricky! Trying to work out what they need, or what they’ve already got, can be a real mystery.

Combine that with the difficulty of buying for Christmas, when you want to really treat them and go above and beyond the usual pairs of socks or bottles of beer, and you’ve got yourself a really stressful situation!

If you’re stuck for gift ideas this Christmas … why not let them choose for themselves with a Machine Mart gift card?

Machine Mart gift cards and E-Vouchers can hold any value from £20 to £500 More >

A BUCKET YOU CAN SIT ON?!

With the durability to endure a lifetime of daily use, the new Pro Combo Bucket from Auto Finesse has been designed to appeal to both industry professionals and detailing enthusiasts.

Featuring a large 20-litre capacity – along with a professional grit guard – this product is engineered to help prevent the recirculation of harmful particles into wash media.

The Pro Combo Bucket also benefits from a water-tight, rubber-sealed, screw-on lid which not only makes it ideal for accessory and solution storage when mobile but also means that it can double as a heavy-duty, detailer’s stool.

Priced at £28.95, the Pro Combo Bucket includes More >

A PROPER PAIRING

Ever since extreme turbo engines hit the scene, engine builders have been searching for a better way to hold intake charge pipes and other pressurized plumbing on their engines together. Traditional silicone couplers can blow apart as the boost climbs, and other methods like welding the pipes together are no good because the welds will crack and fail as the engine flexes.

Vibrant Performance HD Clamp Assemblies securely join two pipes together in applications making up to 800 PSI of static boost pressure. The clamps are also flexible, allowing up to 12 degrees of telescopic and angular movement to withstand all the More >

LIGHTWEIGHT SPRITE

With the summer over most MG Midgets and Austin Healey Sprites will be heading to the garage for the winter and if an overhaul is planned it is a great time to fit a Fidanza Aluminium Lightweight Flywheel.

Fidanza lightweight flywheels offer the following benefits: • Faster throttle response and quicker acceleration • Additional horsepower to the wheels (reduced parasitic losses) • Smoother, faster shifting • Easier braking, more effective slowing (due to reduced rotational mass) • Reduced clutch wear and improved efficiency (from better heat dissipation) • Cost savings and longevity (thanks to Fidanza’s replaceable green friction plate – no need More >

NO, NO, NO – HORN JOKES ARE NOT HAPPENING!

During the 1970s and 1980s, many high-performance cars (such as the Ferrari 308, Citroën SM and Aston Martin V8) were fitted with the Weber DCNF carburettor and many of these applications used a custom-made cast aluminium air horn.

This air horn has been out of production for many years, but now Webcon has made them available once again.

Part number 5284800100 is supplied as a complete kit including a cork gasket, mounting screws and washers and is available from stock at £67.36 inc VAT.

Available now from 01932 787 100 or www.webcon.co.uk ENDS.
