Been out and about in the Tourer testing shock absorbers for Rotoshim here in the UK.

Yes. Belcher Engineering parts there I reckon.
A hole so deep you may as well keep going for gold...
Nah, joking. That's practically ready for the road.
Nope - it's an engineering company in Norfolk in the UK that is handily just across the way from work.
After shock testing with the Coupe to Pendine and back including some salt bath and wet sand blasting on the beach I transferred them to the...
I used a T shell and had a radiator built with a scallop for the fan.[ATTACH]
If only you were closer.
Cheers - it does sound quite good doesn't it? Reckon I could have fitted my close ratio box.
#392 is running a Pinto I think.
Thought you might like the view from the timing tent.
Narrow? Mart went on the main roads.
Took the Coupe to Pendine again.
Fresh build on an old babbit bottom end. 60 thou over, ported, new 1.5" valves, Stipe 340 cam and a Brierley...
I run a stock A box in my Coupe and Tourer - the Tourer has a close ratio gear set.
I've been known to race both...
It’s not just sand. It’s Pendine Sands.
and yes , most of the strips have broken up or gone.
Half a mile standing start, sixteenth of a mile trap.
Popped to a local company at the weekend to fit a set of their prototype Model A shocks. Plan is to to clock some miles on them driving the pretty...
Serial offender. My first T bucket - early 90's build and looked no different by 2006.
Or in fact 2012!
My second. Taught my...
Tons of spares - not just starter parts...
I have a Thomas head on one of my diamond B engines. Love it. Lovely smooth running engine.
Well, truth be told, it was until I ran a rod...
I'd go flathead - all easy bolt on stuff unless you're going cam deep. Overhead will look stunning with an open hood but will be a whole engine...
Lovely bloke that Pete.
I've had a modern bendix or two (three actually) shatter so I've gone back to originals. One broke in two as we were climbing the last hill going...
Supplied a few old shock parts to a friend of mine who runs a machine shop across the way from work. Been following the project since then. The...
A and B starters are both 3 bolt fixing, but the starter switch fixings are different. Four screws on the A and three screws on a B starter switch.
Yes, if it went into a vehicle the diamond blocks have an engine number. I have a couple that were industrial engines and they're not stamped.
Looking good Greg.
Thanks for that!
Figured that the gearbox snout and thrust would be Volvo - just wondering what diameter the centre hole in the diaphragm might be?
