Cc cylinder head buildup

Nitriding Burette

As with all engine projects, the end product relies on a good foundation. Firstly, the head needs to be as new as possible. New heads are much lass prone to cracking in my experience. There is no point spending time and money on a casting that is likely to fail. Stick with the newest head you can get, in this case I chose the A unleaded 12G940B range as seen here. This is effectively a spring chicken in comparison with the much older A-series 12G940 head. These heads came with 33.2mm intake and...

Wimm

to Darren's LMP1 Lola-Aston Martin The Formula 1 of sports car racing would be immeasurable. But is there anything he can benefit from with the day job by racing the Mini No. Not really at all. It is a nice re-set button. I go away from the day completely chilled and in really good spirits, but does it help with anything I do Zero, absolutely zero. There's nothing I can take from driving a 1964 Mini Cooper S to an LMP1 car, and there's nothing really from the LMP1 that I can bring across to...

You would think that someone like Geoff Bell, who has had Minis in his blood from an early age, would know better than to buy a Mini unseen on eBay.co.uk. His older brother Ray raced with Chris Tyrell in the 70s, and his younger brother, Steve Bell, was Mini Se7en champion and died in an accident at Silverstone whist leading the Miglia championship in 2001. Sadly, none of these three are still with us, but Geoff says they deserve a mention for introducing him to the Mini phenomena. The...

Unfortunately for Sput, but perhaps fortunately for me, the cost of keeping old faithful professionally maintained was starting to become too steep for the magazine to swallow. So I've...
