Engine & Transmission > Borg & Beck Pressure Plate (8 replies - 8886 views)

Malcolm, At 8-1/2" the JH clutch-plate is marginal for any high performance 9xx engine.  However, it's more than adequate for a street car.  If you are ...   02-19-2007 01:17 pm

Engine & Transmission > Seeking shims and answer on blocked oil drain (9 replies - 7357 views)

Engine & Transmission > Seeking shims and answer on blocked oil drain (9 replies - 7357 views)

Body & interior stuff > Seats (4 replies - 4498 views)

Pat, The sad fact is that no two seats mount the same.  This really isn't a bolt-in solution, more like a total renovation project for  your interior. I had ...   01-10-2007 03:41 pm

Ignition > Electronic Distributor Experiences? (23 replies - 22722 views)

Electrical & Instruments > Seat Belt Wires (4 replies - 5339 views)

Jim, Cutting (and taping off) the wires will probably have zero effect if someone has previously bypassed the seat-belt interlock system.  If your system is still functioning (i.e. car ...   11-27-2006 05:43 pm
