Re: AC Frua

Chris, thank you for your interest. As the car is not mine I will contact the owner if he would consider a sale to the US. The car is in Germany.

Re: Well I said I would.............

Balance Well, don`t you read the installation instructions properly? The pushrod, which is closer to the spherical bearing (in the tube) gets more force than the other one. So you can select if the right or left cylinder is getting more force. Best this is done on a brake tester with rollers. Happy ...

Re: BRA 289 in the Netherlands

I am very sure that the car is coming from the UK. In the text the dealer is stating that the price will include dutch registration.
Interesting place to put an oil radiator.

Re: Can you ID this engine?

It is a patent from Mr. J.B.Platner from 1954. He had designed it for the Chrysler corporation. When you look up the patent number it shows you a good description and the other drawings belonging to it. It is not mentioned if it was ever actually build.

Re: Hawk Headers question

Andrew, US parts suppliers have the correct bolts.(ARP or similar). Yes, the bolt heads are smaller. I purchased my headers in the US and they came with these bolts, otherwise it would not have been possible to fit!

Re: 289 Cobra meeting on the continent

Great and welcome interest from the UK already! The main purpose for this meeting should be that 289 owners living in different mainland countries, who do not come to Silverstone, have a meeting point. Would be interesting to see different cars who have not appeared at the AGM. Also there are differ...
