289 five bolt/T10

For the original fans!

All is still in a running car (Ford Falcon Futura Coupe) and would be available early next year.
Best regards Karl

Re: Engine Oil for Rover engines

Well Peter, running Mobil1 0-40 since 10 years (after break-in with mineral oil), no problems, but it is a Ford with all new internals and machined to modern tolerances!

Re: Ford 302

Hello Ronny Yes, they work with flanges. I connected reducers (3 to 2,5 inch ) to them and than welded a 2,5 inch exhaust system together.

Re: 2.5" versus 3" exhaust

The additional bend is to connect a silencer (when needed)

Sanderson FF5 are the only headers that fit the Hawk, using them since ten years on my Ford 347

Re: Inner tie-rod balljoint

The rack is pushed down on the pinion (steering shaft) by a spring loaded halfround plastic guide on the right side. This side has no bush.

Bush for steering rack

Need help on this! Does somebody know where to get a bush for the MG B steering rack (part number 17 H 8664)? Many have it on their website, but not in stock/no longer available/on back order. They must be around somewhere, as you can buy new/reconditioned racks everywhere. Thanks for any helpful an...

Re: Inner tie-rod balljoint
