BANANARAMA

There are plenty of waxes that promise to give your car a butter wet or mirror-like finish.

Most of them hail from America and some of them are really very good indeed. However, it’s good to be able to report on a UK car care brand offering such a product.

The wax in question is from Autobrite Direct and their brilliantly named Carbanuba banana-scented wet-look wax. The smell could well be nearly as a good as the wax!

It really does have an unbelievable banana scent that smells like a McDonald’s milkshake or a Bird’s Angel Delight. I like my car care products More >

IT’S NICE TO HAVE A FAN

2020 could be a good year for high temperatures. April was the sunniest on record for the UK and May continued to bring the sunshine.

Meaco has seen an exceptionally high demand for fans this spring, partly due to this weather, and in part caused by the lockdown with more people working and exercising from home.

It is therefore timely that Meaco has launched a new pedestal fan, to join its award-winning range of fans.

The MeacoFan 1056 Pedestal air circulator is the first pedestal fan for Meaco, developed and built following customer demand. According to Chris Michael, MD of Meaco: “Customers were looking for a floor More >

ROCKERS ROLLIN’? WASN’T THAT A QUO SONG?

Conventional rocker arms produce some sideways movement of the valve stems causing high levels of friction and subsequent wear to both stems and valve guides.

Now Burton Power is able to offer a Roller Rocker Assembly for the Ford Kent engine.

Roller Rockers virtually eliminate valve and guide wear due to their strong-arm construction and large low friction needle roller bearings.

The Burton Ford Crossflow OHV Kent Roller Rocker Assembly has a standard lift of 1.53:1 and is suitable for a multitude of applications including a whole shed load of kitcars!

The Burton Ford Crossflow OHV Kent Roller Rocker Assembly can be ordered as part number More >

WHAT A PERFORMER!

Since the introduction of E5 and E10 ethanol content fuels, there has been a steady rise in cases of hot fuel handling issues. This has been especially evident in V8 engines such as the Rover 3.5-litre and 3.9-litre, where superior heat insulation under the carburettor is a necessity.

Webcon has an answer with a genuine Edelbrock heat insulator gasket to suit the Weber-Edelbrock Performer four-barrel carburettor.

The insulator is manufactured from an 8mm thick nitrile rubber composite and is available as part number 9266.

It is available from stock, priced at £44.08 inc VAT and comes with the required extended studs to take More >
