To the best of my knowledge, the RS500 Sapphires were built by JT Developments in Pretoria and sold through Steyn's Ford branches in the city. (They were also the guys that did the initial development of the 3.4 liter Essex V6 for Ford) The cars were Ghia spec with all the bells and whistles. They h...

Re: Bad workers in S.A.

Rassie, I cannot agree with you more. It is extremely difficult to find good help. I also run a one man show. I currently have a friend who is between jobs, who assists me with the mechanical aspects. He is a great help, but the car audio side and custom fabrication is not his forte. I have my garde...

Unless it uses the brown DOT6 fluid, that ATF in your picture looks decidedly burned.

351 Cleveland engine wanted

I am urgently looking for a good, running, 351 Cleveland engine.

The engine in the Mustang has developed a terminal knock and we would really like to do the Putfoot rally.

'73 Mustang Mach 1 power steering box - mahala

We have replaced the steering box on the Mustang with a new unit that I had brought in from CJ Pony parts. The old unit is available for free, first to arrive can have it. I replaced it because the spool valve needs attention, so the car has extremely light steering, almost like when the wheels are ...
