SS1 7"X13" 4x100 ML wheels for sale

It's been that long since I put a set on I would have to defer to someone who currently has a Sabre / OZs wheels. I don't recall needing spacers, but do remember there were some (3 or 5mm) ones on "C13 TRC" when as received from you. Where were you thinking regarding them rubbing, trailing arms, fro...

Twin Spark CA18ET Performance Cam for sale SS1/Sabre

Came across a T-Spark dizzy in my stores over the weekend.

Could make the cam a more viable option?

Let me know once someone has bought it and I shall offer them the relevant dizzy at a highly inflated opportunistic price. :lol:

SS1 7"X13" 4x100 ML wheels for sale

5.5 et35 would give you approx 10mm more clearance. Original 14x5.5 SS1 alloys are et27, so that would be a further 8mm clearance still.

Regarding the rack, standard SS1 should be just under 3 turns lock to lock, where as a Chevette one would be around 4.

Ford's SS1

Sidelights. Use long screws through the whole assembly and spire clips on the bumper. Column. Can swap the lock by drilling out the old shear bolts and using m8 socket caps instead, but easy enough to drop the column. Two brackets from underneath, only fiddle is getting a 10mm spanner in the back of...

Hence the suggestion of blasting. That crud is line granite, needs a percussive means of removal.

SS1 7"X13" 4x100 ML wheels for sale

Do you have a chevette steering rack fitted? Extra travel would result in the wheels touching on full lock as you mention. 15x7 et25, is "perfect" fitment wise for an SS1/Sabre and indeed is actually the same spec as Sabre original fitment OZ Pluton wheels (ok they are et26 bit what's a mill) Steve....

The Green Machine - Sprint Car Build

Looking at the pictures I can see a few chips and imperfections. Think it's probably going to need a full rub back to gelcoat and one or more (further defects allowing) resprays before you can even entertain the idea of it being seen in public... :lol:

1800ti exhaust manifold needed

Hmmm. Possibly what looks like a crack extending through to the stud at the top right? Die grinder to take out the immediate web and intermediate wall, been done plenty of times and never caused an issue. I always recommend getting the manifold grit blasted, money well spent versus trying to clean i...

Spring has Sprung

Part of the issue with modern vehicles is that most springs have less coils per inch and hence are put under a greater stress compared with a greater number of coils compressing the same distance.

Out of interest which coils broke? Part of the active section or at the base?

Ss1 1600 exhaust manifold

But to answer the original post. I have a usable standard manifold and downpipe. Would be available after next weekend as it's with the rest of my stuff back in reading.

Ss1 1600 exhaust manifold

I tried arsing about with a couple of chopped up ford cvh downpipes one weekend before throwing the towel in and getting one custom made. I couldn't have achieved anything as good as the end result so it was money well spent in my view. There is very little point in mating an XR3i manifold up to the...

SS1 (CVH) custom exhaust manifold/system wanted

Surely it would be better to just save up and arrange for something to be fabricated for purpose? Either a downpipe for a Zetec manifold, or the full thing from head back.

ss1 steering rack

I read that to mean they were obtained from "Simply Lotus" as per earlier links to these parts.

Either it's a trick of the photograph, or the QC is shocking, the depth of the machined dish looks totally different comparing both!
