ROCKIN’ AND ROLLIN’

If your kitcar has a Ford Crossflow read on …

Conventional rocker arms tend to produce sideways movement in the valve stems which causes high levels of friction and subsequent wear to both the stems and valve guides.

However, the wear can be prevented by replacing the standard rockers with roller-rockers; their strong-arm construction and the presence of large, low-friction needle roller bearings virtually eliminate the undesirable sideways movement.

The standard lift Burton Roller Rocker Assembly for the Ford Kent engine can be ordered as part number FP229K at £500.00 inc VAT.

The assembly is suitable for all Ford Kent engines, but an alloy More >

CHOKER

Weber 32/36 DGAV and 38 DGAS carburetors are used on millions of cars around the world; they combine the reliability and power of Weber with the convenience of a water-operated automatic choke.

Over time the efficiency of the bi-metallic unit can deteriorate. This leads to starting problems and poor choke performance. The housing can also corrode if the engine’s antifreeze and corrosion inhibitor have not been correctly maintained.

Now, the choke units on these popular carburettors can be renovated using the new Webcon CRK003 choke overhaul kit.

The Webcon CRK003 choke overhaul kit contains 100 per cent genuine Weber parts including a bi-metallic More >

ICY WINDSCREEN – NOT GOOD SAY AUTOGLYM

Almost half of all UK motorists admit to not fully clearing their windscreen of snow and ice before driving off during winter months, according to a new nationwide survey commissioned by Autoglym, the UK’s largest vehicle care brand.

1000 car owners across the UK were asked if they ever drive off before their windscreen is completely clear of snow and ice during winter months, and 48 per cent answered ‘yes’ (14 per cent ‘yes, most of the time’, plus a further 34 per cent ‘yes, sometimes’).

Section 41D of the Road Traffic Act 1988 makes it a legal requirement to have a More >

BRIGHT UPGRADE

In recent years, headlight manufacturers have responded to price pressures by reducing choices and often quality for lower-volume items. The smaller 5¾in headlights fall into that category.

Instead of offering them either with or without a pilot light, there is now a ‘one cap fits all’ policy, with pilot light only. Instead of offering both premium and budget offerings, there is the budget option only. While this is understandable, it ignores the fact that many cars that have these headlights have been expensively restored and the proud owners are often looking for the highest quality items possible to replace the worn-out More >
