I've got an Amco top on my car, I installed it about 9 years ago. Bought it at Brit-Tek, it came with instructions and all. It's a good top functionally, but it would'nt win any concours. If you want

I run my '75 B in autoX, I have installed quite a few modifications, and as a result I run in DSP. If you are looking at trying for a national title, either build an all out competition car or look f

I wanted to attend, but my car isn't running yet. If it is, I'm sure it would gather more laughs than yours. At least until I blast some cones...

Do it. The stuff works great. Basically all it does is improve the thermal efficiency of the collant in the system. I've used it with good results in my '75 B, but the real proof for me came a couple

Sounds like a blown head gasket to me. After you install a new head gasket, you need to run the car up to normal operating temp and then retorque the head. Once the car overheated, the gasket got con

If you are going to use the main caps from block A on block B, you will need to have the block and caps align bored or align honed. This will ensure that the caps and block are concentric, and true.

What ever you do, don't use brake fluid. It removes the paint, but doesn't come off itself. If you try to paint over it, you'll only end up with a shitty paint job with all sorts of chemical blemishe
