KEEP YOUR BOOTS ON

For drive-shaft and constant velocity joint rubber boots, traditionally the securing clamps have simply been compressed with clamp pliers.

However, on modern vehicles, the high-strength stainless steel clamps need much more force to compress them and secure the boot. For this reason, manufacturers now specify a torque figure that the boot clamps have to be tightened to.

If the clamps are not tightened to the specified torque figure, the boots could leak. The CV Boot Clamp Pliers from Laser Tools (part number 7316) is a robust, strongly manufactured tool that features a 3/8in drive and is specifically designed to be used with More >

RIGHT ON THE RATCHET!

Speed and efficiency – two of the most important things when it comes to quick turnarounds on repairs. Laser Tools understands that sometimes traditional tools can be time-consuming – there must be a quicker way?

That’s why they’ve developed the pull-back rapid-action ratchet. This ratchet redefines speed and effectiveness wherever you would use a conventional ratchet handle. The 3/8in drive spins more than 360 degrees with a simple pump of the patented pull-back grip. Two ratchet lengths are available: part number 7376 (350mm) and part number 7377 (230mm).

SPEEDY WHEELS

Great news for fans of classic rallying and motorsport everywhere as Speedline has decided to bring the classic Type 2013C six-spoke wheel back to the market – a rim made simply iconic during the heyday of the WRC in the nineties on cars the like Subaru Impreza and Toyota Corolla in both WRC and Group A guises.

For years these original wheels have been changing hands for big money amongst competitors, who value both their ability and authenticity. Owners who wanted to keep their car period perfect for historic events have long been requesting the reinstatement of this wheel to the More >

KEEP YOUR HEAD

Enthusiasts wanting to build a high performance 265-307 small block Chevy traditionally had two choices for a bolt-on cylinder head – a set of refurbished factory cast iron heads or aftermarket heads made for large-bore (350ci and above) engines.

The first option was expensive and didn’t make all that much more power, while the second left horsepower on the workbench because the valves in the large-bore heads were shrouded by the smaller cylinder bores.

Now Summit Racing has a better choice made just for small-bore Chevy owners. Edelbrock’s Performer RPM Small-Bore Cylinder Heads are engineered for use with small blocks that have More >

JAG-BASED STOPPERS

Jaguar was one of the first motor manufacturers to demonstrate the superiority of disc brakes over drum brakes with its winning of the 1953 Le Mans 24-Hours. However, more than half a century later, the 1950s and 1960s braking systems often fail to offer adequate stopping power, especially amidst modern traffic with newer cars being able to stop in much shorter distances.

Moss Europe’s Fosseway Performance offers a solution in the form of a range of lightweight aluminium, four-piston brake calipers and uprated brake components for classic Jaguar cars and Jag-based kitcars.

They can be fitted directly to the car with no More >
