    Pete’s a great guy and you only have to look at their results in classic racing. Not cheap but they do the job well. And he’s lending me a 289 flywheel to get my 302 balanced up for the GT40 nice chap that he is.

    Oh yes - it was only short due to budget, he was friendly and approachable and I know by reputation he does excellent work

    Pretty sure I'll still need his services - to date the engine for IVA

    Can’t deny, I’d love to have a go in an original 1960’s 427, just for the experience, I can only imagine what they were like back in the day with Anglia’s and Austin 1100’s the usual fare.....

    Well, I can do half of it! The original engine bit (when this bloody Covid thing is sorted). We can easily sort
