"Box Clever" mag article

PostPost by: ardee_selby » Wed Aug 03, 2011 7:40 pm

Old mag article on Ford g'box applications.

Other threads reminded me to upload it again...might be of interest to some that didn't see first time round.

Cheers - Richard

After looking through that I have come to the conclusion that such articles deserve a special section for easy access on this forum.
A ready reference section for definitive component information would be a great success, I think.

Ha ha,
I was going to write here that it took you long enough to write the reply I was anticipating from you Alan.
But hey, when I checked the times of the postings it appears that you possess supernatural powers :roll:

Some (hopefully) better quality scans of the article can be found here:

In addition, I remember using the following (in conjunction with the Lotus manual) when I stripped & rebuilt the box. But I'll be damned if I can remember now how it helped exactly :( :oops: Maybe just the photos to illustrate the sort of work involved.

If anyone can let me know, it would be appreciated! :)
