REGULATIONS, REGULATIONS, REGULATIONS

Traditionally, adjusting the fuel pressure on an EFI system using an in-rail regulator has involved replacing the original fixed rate pressure unit with a higher pressure fixed unit.

Finding the optimum pressure meant having to experiment with different units, but now Webcon has a better answer.

Webcon part WFR060 is a quality, in-rail, 0-5 bar adjustable regulator that simply replaces the existing fixed pressure unit and allows the user to accurately set the pressure to the most suitable level with just one unit.

Webcon part WFR060 is available from stock priced at £83.08 inc VAT.

SMART CHARGING

With 286 million passenger cars across the EU, all with a battery, the company has developed the RSC804, RSC806 and RSC808 Smart Battery Chargers and Maintainers to keep drivers safer on the roads and able to easily restore power to their motorcycles, cars, 4x4s, vans and trucks.

Although batteries are supposed to last four years, testing from the dedicated on-site quality control facility at Ring Automotive suggests this is more likely to be between two to three. As such, its Charger and Maintainers have a selection of features, making them robust and fit for purpose.

PAMPER YOURSELF!

Here’s a great product from a superb UK car care brand, Auto Finesse called Lavish a ceramic-based snow foam.

I like Auto Finesse as they are a boutique company that has grown quite large with its products now stocked on the shelves of Halfords. However, they still retain their enthusiast-led drive and passion and among their growing range lurk some outstanding products.

First off, Lavish has a wonderful scent which my nose tells me is either watermelon or a fruit salad chew. If I had to pick one, I’d say it was the latter.

The idea is not only does it help protect More >

THIS ONE IS FOR CHOCOLATE LOVERS

Oxfordshire-based Krystal Kleen Detail makes some cool car care products and I’d been hearing good things about their Choccy Wash Hi-Foaming Shampoo so I decided to give it a try. Faced with a sand-covered car (how?) the other day I decided to break out the buckets and the Worx Hydroshot and put it to work.

The ‘Choccy’ part of the name gives the clue that there could be chocolate afoot! When you take the cap off the bottle be prepared for the most lovely aroma of finest Belgian milk chocolate. Don’t leave a chocolate milkshake around while using the product as More >

LET THE SUN DO THE WORK

Another new and exciting product from Sealey! Their Solar Panel Range, SSP01, SSP02 & SSP03 are currently on special offer in their Spring 2020 Promotion and with the daylight hours getting longer these are the perfect products.

Each model differs in output, SPP01 – 1.5W, SPP02 – 2.4W and SPP03 – 4.8W. Their amorphous solar panels convert daylight directly into 12V electricity. The advanced technology used means that solar panels require only daylight to generate power.

They are suitable for maintaining the charge in a wide range of batteries and power packs, but their ideal purpose is for batteries stored in boats More >

BUCKLAND B3 BACK

Great to hear that superb Buckland B3 three-wheeler is scheduled for a comeback in 2020.

Originally created by electronics control engineer Dick Buckland the beautiful little device was out of production for many years until John Wilcox of the Penguin Speed Shop based in Flintshire acquired the project and revised it to make it available in kit form, something that Dick had never done.

Newport-based Buckland (he lived very close to the Llanwern steelworks) was inspired by the Morgan F-Type of the thirties and along with assistance from his friend and first customer, Laurie Weeks. The car first broke cover in 1985 More >
