  1. I believe the J15 is indeed mostly compatible with the J13 external mounts etc. but do not have any personal experience with that engine.
  2. If just a fall back in case of emergency, originality not temporarily important, investigate possibility of early Austin engines.
  3. "Uhhu" Owl night fighter. I have a model of this.
  4. British wat to snoop out those watching TV without paying the BBC tax.
  5. If you look, the spacing is adjustable.
  6. Try the checkout line at Vons/Safeway or any other grocery store. You might be surprised at what you find in those large grab boxes.
  7. Related Federal gun charges were not filed. Would have locked him up for a long time. Typical lazy attitude on local authorities, let's get this over with minimum effort on our part.
  8. Quite common these days for regional dealers to sponsor one common body shop.
  9. About 15 years ago a motorcycle pulled out from behind me and passed me on the left Run straight into one of those "flag" mirrors, Quite a mess. Should have looked and maybe ducked ?
  10. Got to be Italian ! Beautful cars, ugly planes. Engine screams Caproni.
  11. YES! SAAB did use the Ford industrial V4 engine.
  12. BW35M still in use in Europe. I have a reuild kit made for Sweedish Cars. See my posting in tranmission section for part numbers etc. All parts listed except for bands.
  13. Specifically the BW M35 British Borg Warner. The US Muncie unit does not use the mechanical down shift cable, Parts people will look up the wrong uniit if you are not careful in specifying the British unit.
  14. The "watcher" will most likely just watch while your vehicle is plundered. After all, your car isn't worth his life.
  15. Structural bits and pieces off the Hindenberg wreckage were incorporated into the British R[something] which on its maiden voyage to India made it all the way across the English Channel before crashing in France. What goes around comes around.
  16. Unless thoroughly abused these rings should fit the type R engine [roadster or sedan] with little gap. My engine had 120,000 miles when I rebuilt it and had less than 5 thousands cylinder wear. Mike the cylinder diameters and check the ridge at the top of the cylinder before doing any over bore! These are tough and well designed engines.
  17. To quote an enginer whom I knew, when challenged to justify a statement he had made, "I pulled it out of my ass."
