Re: Side Screens

Cars left Thames Ditton with a simple steel chrome-plated right-angle bracket fixed to the back face of the windscreen by a chrome-plated raised countersunk 2BA screw. A rubber buffer was installed through a hole in the plate. One of the top-end US restoration companies had this buffer, which appear...

Re: It Would Be A Waste Not To...

A ‘T’ car is a widely-used term for a ‘Team’ car - a back-up car which is not set up for a particular driver but can be used by either (or any) team driver if their own fails or is damaged.

Re: How big do you need your garage to be

I must admit to having watched that out of interest, too, having done a similar build last year - but personally wasn't too impressed overall. The finished buildings looked more like an industrial unit to me, and the garage was clearly built for someone who doesn't work on his cars. Not sure what th...

Re: 289 Ammeter Question

Just spotted this and thought I'd chip in. For a RHD COB leafspring car as supplied via dealer for road use: The ammeter is a Lucas BM4 ('back moulded' or 'Bakelite moulded', depending on who you talk to), pendant pointer with arrowhead, 30-0-30A. The oil temp gauge is Smiths capillary, 40-140˚, par...

Helper springs

Anybody need a set of 4 Faulkner helper springs to keep your rear Jag springs in place on full droop? I found I needed these for my Hawk to stop the springs dropping out of their location positions when jacking up. These are little used, powder coated blue with a relaxed length of around 50mm, easil...

Aluminium valve covers

I have for sale one pair of cast aluminium valve covers for 289. These are the correct-for-289 Cobra pattern of open-letter 'Cobra powered by Ford' covers, not the later-style Mustang-only ones with the crackle black finish and/or solid 'Cobra' lettering. These are brand new and unfitted, made by Sc...
