Weber Replacement ‘W’ Plate for Ford V6 ‘Essex 3.0 Engine

Despite being over 40 years old, the
Ford ‘Essex’ 3.0 V6 is still a popular and potent engine for classic Fords, kit cars and rods alike.

Unfortunately, age also brings with it the problem of OEM parts becoming NLA; one such part is the carburettor ‘W’ plate which is essential to ensure the fuel / air mixture is evenly distributed to all six cylinders.

For quite some time owners have had little option but to source second-hand ‘W’ plates, but now Webcon has come to the rescue with a faithful reproduction of the original part. The Webcon ‘W’ plate has the benefit of being made from modern materials which ensures far superior heat insulation; there is also the additional advantage of having been manufactured to Webcon’s legendary quality standards.

The Webcon ‘W’ plate is available as part number is 9990388200 and retails at £99.65 plus VAT.

Available directly from Webcon and from appointed Webcon dealers around the world.

Fidanza 2016 Ford Focus ST Aluminium Flywheel

The Focus ST is already a potent performance car, but one improvement would be changing to a Fidanza Aluminium Flywheel.

A Fidanza lightweight flywheel is simple to install when the clutch is replaced and will bring the following benefits:

• Faster throttle response and quicker acceleration
• Additional horsepower to the wheels (reduced parasitic losses)
• Smoother, faster shifting
• Easier braking. Better slowing (due to reduced rotational mass)
• Reduced clutch wear and improved efficiency (from better heat dissipation)
• Cost savings and longevity (thanks to Fidanza’s replaceable green friction plate – there is no need
to replace the entire flywheel when worn)
• Potential for increased fuel economy (if you can keep your foot off the gas!)
• Quality and reliability (made in the USA from top grade materials)

A Fidanza lightweight flywheel for the 2016 Ford Focus ST can be ordered as part number 186121 and retails at USD $407.13 plus shipping and tax.

Burton’s Single Piece Propshaft

To connect Rocket or Type 9 five speed gearbox to English/Atlas Axle on Ford Escort Mk1/Mk2

Burton Power is pleased to announce it can now offer a single piece propshaft based on the Group 1 version to fit all standard RS2000s and Escort Mk1/2 using a Rocket or 5 speed gearbox and an English or Atlas axle.

By using a larger diameter tubing and not incorporating the centre bearing, this single piece propshaft is much stronger than the original two piece item. It is suitable as a direct replacement for the original prop or for competition use.

It is a high quality item manufactured in the UK, not a cheap inferior import. Most imports use rather crude forgings which are heavier and the tubing specification can often be suspect.
The tube specification used on the Burton propshafts is SAE 1020/1040, as per the original factory specification.

The end float in the universal joints is controlled by varying the thickness of the circlips which gives a smoother joint action and better control over straightness and dynamic balance. All Burton shafts are checked then corrected for straightness; there is no runout on any part of the tube greater than 0.25mm (compared to the original specification of 0.35mm). Dynamic balance is at 3000rpm to ISO specification G16. All Burton propshafts are now fitted with an upgraded transmission sleeve to eradicate any reliability issues under extreme race conditions.

Suitable for:
Ford Escort Mk2 RS Mexico 1975-1978 • RS1800 1975-1977 • RS2000 1976-1980

  • Escort Mk2 fitted with 4 speed Rocket or 5 speed Type 9 gearbox 1975-1980 • Escort Mk1 fitted with a 4 speed Rocket or 5 speed Type 9 gearbox and a Mk2 diff flange 1968-1974.

Order as PROPENG at £240.00 (inc VAT)
