I've never had the priveledge to meet Vic in person, but we've talked on the phone many times, and corresponded via e-mail, and one thing I've always admired about Vic, is that he offers straight, factual answers, in short order. Thanks, Vic, again.Vic Skirmants wrote: ↑Wed Oct 16, 2019 8:12 amMike Horton: Yes, I use AA P&Cs in our 65 coupe, as well as many street rebuilds (when I was still doing those). Never had a problem that I heard of.
For the race engines, I used stock cast iron cylinders, machined to 83.5mm by a local friend. He gave me the best, straightest, round cylinders I have ever seen, Unfortunately he passed away a few years ago, so now I use the Shasta iron cylinders with pistons made to my design by JE. No, I do not stock any street P&C sets.
(I still recall the wise council you gave me, on parts selection, and the BBBC Normal trans gear selection, for my old late '60 T5, many years ago, for a car I've owned, since '69 !)
