    Wow haven't been here for a long time!

    Keep up the hard work smitty! Most People don't understand 4 season of racing is x4 time longer than it should last.

    I'm waiting for my engine to let go! Just gets the odd street duty now days.

    hi all...

    have stopped work for a couple of days (have been doing 7 days a week since our management gave us a new computer system... which sorta works)
    so
    jumped back to trying to get this car going.

    Can anyone tells me the size here? that is the oil feed 'drill' hole that gets capped off.

    I usually carry 3 x grub screws for this (and the 2 others on the front) which I tap
    and screw in a grub screw with sealant but for the life of me, I no can find

    What size ? don't think it is 7/16, so 1/2" unc? or...




    Thanks

    Just make sure it is not proud of the surface as it may hit the base of the intake manifold.
