GET IN THERE!

Here’s another interesting device from Laser Tools. The problem to solve: a fastener buried deep in the engine bay. It may be a pulley securing nut, a water pump mounting bolt or an A/C compressor adjustor.

You may just be able to get a spanner on it, but there’s definitely no room for a ratchet handle if you want to remove the fastener quickly. Reach for this new extension ratchet (part number 7655). It’s 340mm long and enables you to remotely ratchet off the fastener, using either a 3/8in or 1/4in drive ratchet handle.

Its length and super-slim profile allow you to More >

KEEP HEAT AT BAY

Protecting vital engine components from heat is tough, especially when it comes to fitting into all of the nooks and crannies of an engine bay.

Mishimoto has devised a solution with their Gold Reflective Barrier, which is constructed from a metalised polyamide polymer laminated glass cloth that protects up to 454°C of continuous heat.

This heat barrier also features an adhesive backing for simple installation on uneven and tight spaces and can be easily trimmed to suit the installation space. The Mishimoto Aluminium Silica Heat Barrier is available in two sizes, 304.8 mm x 609.6mm and 609.6 mm x 609.6mm to fit More >

ROCKETEER CHANGES DIRECTION

The brilliantly named Rocketeer, who over the last two years have sold over 70 of their Jaguar engine conversion kits for Mazda MX-5, is shifting direction slightly.

Rocketeer co-founder, Bruce Southey told me: “With a view to maintaining the highest quality and delivering on our original vision of building tactile, visceral, analogue sportscars, we are going to focus our business on fully built resto-mod cars and turnkey conversions in future. Engine kit sales will cease at the end of 2019. However, we will, of course, continue to support any self-build projects currently in progress.
