At Last! A Twin Cam Weber Conversion that Works!
Converts Siamese Stromberg Heads to 2 X DCOE Weber Carburetors
No Welding to Destroy Head Temper
No Phony Adaptor Manifolds Bolting to Existing Flanges
|Existing ports and breather box is machined off and a precision CNC machined inlet manifold is bolted on. The interface is then matched for efficient flow. Appears remarkably stock. Although you probably won't be able to pass it off on the more anal vintage tech inspectors, you should be able to fool any smog bureaucrat! Exchange service guarantees quick turnaround. Price includes matched manifold, bolt-on breather for front of cam cover (the problematic and leaky breather box is now eliminated) and a plug for the block breather hole, plus all studs and fasteners. $1350/EXCHANGE (Send us your usable Stromberg head in advance or pay a refundable $800 core charge and send it later) You then take it to your favorite head man for valve job and assembly to complete. Or, we can build up to your specs (standard road to full race) ready to bolt on. (To be quoted separately.)|
Finally - a gear reduction starter for road cars at replacement srtarter prices!
|While not as high performance as the new Hitachi-based Super
Starters, these Nippondenso units are nevertheless a definite step up
from the rebuilt original equipment versions, and in the case of the
Elan unit much easier to fit. (We still recommend the Super
Starter for all competition applications.) There are three versions
Fits Lotus Elan. Easier fit than Super Starter. Vast improvement over Lucas inertia unit at only slightly more. $179.00
Multi-position version of above to fit FF, Lotus 7, Europa T/C, Cortinas, etc. (9-tooth pinion.) $179.00
All Renault-powered Europas. Replaces both Paris Rhône and Ducellier versions. And cheaper than the French ones (if you can find them). $195.00
6.8lbs (3 kg) of extra lightweight DYNAMITE!
Same torque as the Super Starter (which means about three times the
original Lucas) at 35% less weight. Permanent magnet, planetary gear reduction
starter has the highest torque density available. Bolts up to any Lotus, Ford,
BMC starter location with 4-1/2" P.C.D. mounting holes. Multiple mounting holes
allow clocking the solenoid in 15 different locations to easily fit the
tightest installations. Available with standard 9-tooth, 10/12 pitch or fine
pitch (10 tooth, 12/14 pitch) pinions. Fits all Lotus T/C, FF, F3, FB, Hewland,
etc. applications. Installation into an Elan no longer a religious

40 amp, 6lbs (2.75 kg) racing alternator for Lotus T/C applications!
That's right. Twice the output of your old generator at half the weight! Compact size makes installation a snap, and there is less danger of exhaust heat problems. Complete kit includes alternator, pulley, belt, isolation mounting bracket and wiring loom.
|Alternator Kit for Elan, Seven, Cortina,
Alternator Only for other applications.
Large Diameter (5") aluminum pulley to slow alternator RPM for full race applications
Removable Water Pump Assembly
We got tired -- very tired -- of dealing with everyone else's version of
the removable water pump assemblies. So, we made our own!
1. It actually FITS!!!
So many others require various fettling and hacking about with files and reamers, etc.
2. The insert is actually removable!
After being on the car for 5 years (and it should be), you can still get ours out of the front cover. Everyone else's is usually corroded on. Very careful attention was paid to seal the coolant from the locating registers to prevent corrosive buildup and bonding.
3. True "road side" replacement.
Jacking bolt bosses are provided to draw out the insert. No pullers or slam hammers required --which you can't use anyway without removing the engine.
4. The front cover is secured to the block independently of the water pump.
You won't compromise the cover seal when removing the pump.
5. The W/P mechanicals are heavier duty than originals.
Durability is improved. So you may never even need the quick change features!
6. It's race proven.
T/C Cam Billets
ATTN: Racers -- now available! Dedicated,
virgin lobe cam billets for racing profiles. Latest material, induction
hardened lobes, fully machined shaft, lobes left semi-finished for full base
grinds to your favorite profile. Or available ready to install with our own
various profiles. (See main catalog.)
526-E-0100 Semi-machined (virgin lobes) ready for profiling ..........................................$245.00
576-E-01XX Ground to our various road and race profiles ..............................................$345.00
576-E-0304 Long sprocket bolt to suit billet .....................................................................$8.90
Improvements over original:
|1. Three equally spaced small radial
holes eliminate stress riser caused by single full cross drill of original,
a cause of many snapped cams in race applications.
2. Radiused oil groove also eliminates another stress riser and potential breaking point.
3. Drilled and tapped for deep reach sprocket bolt. Loads the long overhang from front bearing to sprocket in compression, eliminating danger of breakage caused by chain tension.
|4. Full diameter lobes allow idealized
base circles for any grind from 1.2" on standard .350" lift cams to 1.06" on
baddest .500" lift race profile. Semi-machined lobes are induction hardened
to 55-58 RC .100" deep on nose for wear resistance. K-iron material compatible
with chilled iron or steel tappets.
5. 1/4" diameter gun drill for added stiffness
6. Available with extended tail for Euroopa T/C application.
