with the specials and non-standards made within the group at our onsite workshop who re-engineered the studs and bolts to the specification required. The flywheel bolts produced by our factory are visible in the picture below.
The fly wheel bolts seen above were all manufactured in our factory.
The image below shows John, the boss, at
Headshop UK working on the oil/water pump which is in a combined casting on
this F 101 AC 001 Ferrari engine.
It was the failure of this pump which
prompted the re-build when the oil and water was found to be mixed in the sump.
Restoration experts claimed that it could be a cracked block or at the best a
failed head gasket. John has proved his worth by finding the problem and
arranging a cost-effective solution to fix this pump. The repair required a
good clean, along with new bearings as the originals had disintegrated, and a replacement
gasket and seal set.
More news about the engine rebuild to follow shortly.

The fasteners are being used on their locomotive “Tony”.
The Fairbourne Railway has been running from Fairbourne village to the mouth of the Mawddach Estuary, connecting with the ferry to Barmouth for over 100 years. It started as a two foot gauge horse-drawn tramway which was then converted to a 15 inch gauge railway in 1916. The line in 1984 was completely re built to a 12.25 inch gauge.
