Dutton Kit Cars and their owners
Finally got my copy of Kit Car magazine through the post today. Had to buy it off the website, as WH Smiths don't seem to stock it around here. A great write up on our cars and hopefully will generate more interest in the world of Duttons. I wonder if this will lead to a few more being dragged out of their resting places and put back on the road. Who knows, we might just see values rise a little bit too.
I could bring some of my spares if any one is willing to bid on a few....
i have a brand new 4-1 exhaust manifold for a pinto which has a 2" collector.
two spare pinto heads (carb versions) (my injection head is spoken for)
A 1300 Xflow head

3, Fit an ST 24 intake, cable throttle body and aftermarket ecu.
You thoughts as to the best solution please

Also put on new radiator bottom hose ( top hose ordered but not arrived yet ) Heater hoses were replaced a couple of months ago, so hopefully, thats all the perishable bits replaced. Headlights adjusted roughly (by pointing them at marks on the garage door) MOT is very near…Continue
So, MOT sorted by the skin of its teeth, loads to do before tomorrow morning, panic has set it due to a little mishap with the pedal box...
How many of you fitted metal spreader plates between the pedal box and the bulkhead? Here is something for those of you with pinto engines to think about.
I didn't see this coming 8 years ago when I re built…Continue
