NO ONE WANTS FROZEN BRAKE CALIPERS

ONE FOR OUR GROWING NORTH AMERICAN READERS

Most caliper piston spreaders are designed for OEM-type single- or dual-piston calipers. The Frozen Rotors spreader is designed just for high-performance four- and six-piston calipers.

The tool first spreads the pads, then evenly retracts the pistons back into the bores with one squeeze of the levers.

The Frozen Rotors caliper piston spreader is easy to use. The spreading plates fit one way for six-piston calipers; for four-piston calipers, just turn the tool 90 degrees. The amount of throw is adjustable using one of three settings on the outside plate.

CHRISTMAS PRODUCT REVIEW – VAX SPOTWASH HOME CORDLESS

£200 well spent. You get several attachments and mine came with various cleaning and treatment products although you need to check as VAX seem to have regular special offers that give added value

VAX UK asked us to try out their new SpotWash product …

Crikey, not sure about you but back in the seventies I remember my dad proudly spending half of his week’s wages on a big old ‘wet’ vacuum cleaner. A massive thing. He’d grown fed up with the lounge carpet being filthy and he was too tight to buy a new one, even though one of his mates More >

UNDER PRESSURE

Excessive fuel pressure causing flooding is becoming a common problem on new or recently rebuilt carburettor setups. This can happen either with an electric fuel pump or when a cheap copy of an original mechanical fuel pump produces way more line pressure than the intended 3 to 3.5 psi. This problem is especially common on Ford and Volvo engines.

Webcon part number WFR150K includes a superb quality 0-15 psi fluid-filled fuel pressure gauge with a Webcon manufactured anodised 8mm 5/16in billet aluminium fuel line adaptor and plug, together with a couple of More >
