    Re: Engines

    What do you have at present, and in what?
    I don't believe there's an 'environmentally friendly' engine out there, not even electric. It will depend on your budget/skill level and time. It can get...

    Re: Marlin Cabrio - hood seal

    Re: Pinto DGAV throttle cable.

    Kit Spares [think they are part of GBS] have a cable with a 90 degree formed outer sheath at one end to clear bonnet. Might be of use.
  10. Re: Roadster: 2ltr Ford Pinto engine with fast road cam

    Pity that they cannot even get the basics right! Now described as a 2L DOHC Ford.

    Re: Marina B series camshaft swap
