Al, its called development, if people didn't do it we, d all still be getting about on horse and cart.
From what I understand (very little I hear you say) because the boot floor has been cut away, air that is pulled into the boot area whilst the car is moving is pulled around photos of nigerian prostitutes in italy in the hump, creating a vortex which pulls the rear.The wheels (which arent the originals) are Image items, measuring 1015 up front and 1215 out back.Over the winter of, I think it was 1971 but could have been 72, we built 2 new cars for the following year.The engine uses a big valve and smaller plug BDX head.Like today, weight saving was top priority._ Frank de Jong Frank de Jong, 18:05 (Ref:2824091) # 14 Mike Bell Race Official Veteran Join Date: Sep escort tractor dealer in uttar pradesh 2008 Attleborough- 5 minutes from Snet!Al Weyman, 17:53 (Ref:2823396) # 3, mike Bell, race Official.Ralph Broad was always thinking outside the box, not always gaining an advantage but certainly trying!We werent long into the conversation before I was pretty much begging Simon to allow us to shoot this car.Simon just happened and remains to be the editor of best sex dating site uk Classic Ford magazine.The cars were completed over the winter and testing carried out in the spring.Max wheel you can fit in that setup is 10".The "existing" springs were made of Teflon and were not attached to the axle, they were just there for show.The body shells were prepared by Maurice Gomm of Woking.Al Weyman, 04:43 (Ref:2823622) # 5 Mike Bell Race Official Veteran Join Date: Sep 2008 Attleborough- 5 minutes from Snet!
Posts: 14,698, on the rear turreted 5 link with coilovers were de rigor in that period surely, never heard of torsion bars being used.
you can't polish a turd but you sure can sprinkle it with glitter!
FFS just say the car has to sit on that spring and it has to be fully functional with no other springing media used.Al Weyman, 13:07 (Ref:2823901) # 11 Robyn Slater Racer Join Date: Nov 2005 Sudbury Suffolk Posts: 472 Very interesting thread.All this is good for around 271BHP.The torsion bar set up was indeed employed so that the widest possible rear wheels could be accommodated.I dont think any where was safe from being drilled out in an effort to save every gram.Another black white pic of rear end shows inboard coilovers, 4 short links and watts- but no dummy leaf springs which is odd unless photo taken out of period.All help is welcomed!The gears are so incredibly close together, not to mention the dog leg layout.
Front upright used on Group 5 Escorts, but were they used on a GR2 Mk1 in 1974?
