Wilwood Disc Brakes Releases New GS Compact Master Cylinders

  Wilwood’s newly designed GS model compact master cylinders have been fully retooled using advanced high pressure die-casting processes to create a lightweight body design with consistent internal grain structure and cross-sectional wall thickness. An all new rebuildable internal piston and return spring assembly creates a quick and positive release for improved durability and extended service life.   These new die-cast aluminum bodies feature a protective e-coat finish, and are individually laser engraved for easy identification of the bore sizes and threaded connections. The remote reservoir model lineup has been expanded to include .50” and .81” bore sizes. Integral reservoir model twist-on caps have been upgraded with a positive seal, pressure balancing bellows-type gasket to keep fluid in and moisture out. The new GS series comes attractively packaged for retail display in a visible window cover box with all new eye-catching graphics. MSRP for remote fill model is $70.19 or $72.35 for integral reservoir unit.     Source: Wilwood Engineering 4700 Calle Bolero Camarillo, CA 93012...

Crown Jewels for SB Fords:

Premium Hemi heads with Boss-style valve covers and Jesel rocker system for small-block Fords. Hemispherical-style combustion chambers have earned a formidable reputation for power generation. How did this come about? The Hemi head broke fresh ground in several areas, including skillfully uniting superior air flow with larger valves. Generally, Hemi head valves are placed across the head compared to Wedge head valves, which are placed more longitudinally along the head. As a result the Hemi air flow route is easier, it has fewer bends, and the transfer of incoming and outgoing gases is more efficient. Also, the Hemi head usually employs larger valves because they are naturally inclined in their hemisphere and hence open toward the center of the cylinder. Their operation, therefore, generates freer air flow—not shrouded— resulting in easier cylinder filling.   Greg Brown’s new company, Hammerhead Performance Engines, is entering the final stages of production of unique Hemi heads for Fords. By some margin it is the most important news for small-block owners in several years. Indeed you might gauge it more notably than this. With an emphasis on completeness, the innovative head kits will include cast aluminum Hemi-style valve covers, a Jesel 1.7:1 ratio rocker system and all the necessary valve and spring assemblies as well as gaskets. The aluminum head kits can be directly installed on all small-block Fords: 289, 302, 351W and, with some modifications, even 351C engine blocks. As you might expect there is more than one dimension to the introduction of this new technology. Following two years of development and testing, all of the mechanical details are now available. Importantly, the...

New Motown Pro Lightweight SBC Block From World Products

New Motown Pro Lightweight SBC Block From World Products

World Products has introduced a new lightweight cast-iron small block for racing and performance applications. Weighing in at a nominal 178lb the Motown Pro Lightweight is cast from a special 40,000psi iron alloy for increased strength while weighing significantly less than typical aftermarket blocks. The new block is available with either a standard SBC cam journal and lifters, or with a BBC cam journal and 0.904in lifter bores to provide enhanced valve train stability and performance. The priority main oiling system has been revised to accommodate the 0.904in lifter upgrade without the added cost of bronze lifter bushings. Oil passages have been enlarged and provision for oil restrictors is built into the valley, further enhancing the high rpm potential by providing improved oil supply and control. Ductile iron main caps are fitted with 4-bolt splayed caps on #2, 3 and 4 main journals and 2-bolt caps for #1 and 5 which allow easy oil pan fitment. The main caps are secured by high strength 7/16in ARP bolts for maximum stability. Clearance for a 4.000in stroke crankshaft is provided and connecting rods, which offer clearance for the BBC cam option with the 4.000in stroke are also available. The Siamese cylinder bores are offered in either 3.995in or 4.120in (to finish at 4.000in or 4.125in) with a maximum bore of 4.185in to accommodate larger cubic inch displacement. World’s new Motown Pro Lightweight block offers tremendous performance potential in a new lightweight package that will appeal to both circle track racers and drag racers. Part numbers for the new SBC blocks are: 083010 – 3.995in Bore, 350 mains, standard SBC cam journal...
New clutch concept for modern Muscle cars, dual- and triple-disc

New clutch concept for modern Muscle cars, dual- and triple-disc

For some time, Ram Clutches had been seeking lighter pedal effort on high performance clutch systems while maintaining adequate clamping loads but couldn’t devise a diaphragm pivot arrangement within the traditional steel cover assembly to achieve it. Though their current designs perform well, in this crusade they offered little potential for improvement, prestige or reward. So, to develop their new series of clutches for contemporary Muscle cars, they set about constructing their own billet aluminum cover assembly that resolved this problem and two others. › Revised mechanical ratio brings light pedal › Direct replacements for new Corvettes, Mustangs and Hellcats › Higher diaphragm fingers prevent over-center shifting issues › Straight retaining straps improve durability   Columbia, SC: Ram is announcing new Pro Street clutch systems. They contain their best-operating geometry yet. To date they are available for six contemporary Muscle cars (listed below). For a long time the mechanical ratio in most high-performance street-vehicle clutches has remained fixed. The clamping pressure within the familiar steel clutch cover assemblies has been adapted to adequate standards but the pedal effort is not always so. In addition, the conventional straps that secure the pressure ring to the cover assembly, though capable, have been susceptible when exposed to abuse—usually from violent downshifts or by missing a gear—and the height of clutch fingers was rarely optimum. Last year Ram embarked on developing new aluminum billet cover assemblies. Their principal purpose was to gain control over the positioning of the pivot points—the diaphragm spring fulcrum—and thereby attain the elusive lighter pedal. They also improved the layout of the pressure-ring retaining straps, which now adopt a...
