    Real Steel used to do a rubber coated metal gasket. Not sure if they still do them, and they were a bit more pricey but superb quality. Never leaked and you can keep reusing them

    Never done the NC500 but the pass of the cattle over to Applecross is well worth it. If you are leaving towards the north then the road around the periphery of Applecross is great too. If you are...

    The Beetle/Karmann Ghia stalk is the correct part, I think the later 427s having the one with the momentary switch to switch the headlight dim/dip via a relay. If you do use that, be aware that if...

    Rare old motor, only produced for a few years.

    You'd have to bore it around 125 thou to get to 335 which sounds unlikely? Possibly it has a crank out of a 350 it in with a light rebore. No idea...

    Why do they insist on calling these cars 1965 when they were made many years later?! The advert is happy to let you think it is an original.
