Northern Machine shops

Hi all Was hoping for recommendations for Machine shops to clean/inspect/potentially re-bore my 302 block (and other bits) but having looked at the recommendations on here, both on the discussions and the useful links, none are further North than Brackley (as far as I can tell!). Anybody able to rec...

Thanks again

Ford V8 engine wanted!

Hello all About to embark on a Hawk 289 build with my son but we're currently space constrained at home and so are seeking an engine to play with first. Ideally looking for a working short-block Ford V8 (289 or 302 providing it's pre '74) that needs a bit of love, but due to their apparent scarcity ...

Re: Hello! New member with a key question...

Thanks all, very helpful indeed.

Bill - just confirming it was the standard Hawk seat bolted directly to the floor? Or did you have to go with a less padded seat?

Particular thanks to fellow Yorkshire resident ‘Cottonmouth’ for allowing me to visit today (with full entourage!) to see a car ‘in the flesh’. This brin...
