Fins Are Looking Up
March Performance has a new “nostalgia” style option for its front-mount small- and big-block serpentine drive kit. This system has been designed to mount accessories below the valve covers and between the width of the heads. Precision CNC-machined from 6061-T6 aluminum and hardcoated on high wear areas, they are clearcoated to eliminate polishing in those hard-to-reach places.
With a choice of “V” or “Round” styles, the kit is designed to fit Ram Jet, TPI, and single or multi-carb engines. The “Ultra Nostalgia” kit includes a chrome alternator and Sanden A/C compressor; GMB aluminum reverse-rotation water pump; Tuff Stuff Type 2 power steering pump; Dayco spring loaded tensioner with housing cover; A/C bracket and nose cover, alternator, power steering brackets, and housing cover; crank pulley; hardcoated water pump pulley with fairing and nose cover; alternator pulley with machined fan and nose cover; power steering and tensioner covers; V-Cross emblem; A/C line fittings; and Grade 8 mounting hardware.

Crossram For Fords
Jim Inglese continues to develop Weber carburetion systems and accessories never available before. The newest offering is this 289-302 Ford crossram. Until now, this exotic design was only available for small-block Chevys. Each system is built to order, and is supplied with a low-pressure fuel regulator with fittings, stainless liquid-filled pressure gauge, Fel Pro intake gasket set, stainless intake bolt set, synchrometer, and most importantly, Jim’s tuning and setup manual.
Model-specific linkage conversions for many Inglese carburetion systems allow easy throttle connection without modification. For instance, this unit can be ordered with a ’65-66 Mustang bolt-on linkage conversion. Polished manifolds, chrome linkages, custom finish carbs, and air cleaners are also available.

Wheel Nice Mover
Moving projects around the garage or shop is always a chore, made worse with under inflated tires or mismatched roller wheels. Wheel Arounds from Kugel Komponents offer a solution, taking up less space than conventional wheels and tires when not in use, and always ready to use. Constructed from injection-molded polyurethane, they’ll support 1,500 pounds of static load (375 pounds per wheel), and as such are designed to move chassis only. They will not support the weight of a body and engine.
These durable 24-inch-tall rollers are 1 3/8 inches wide and come in a set of four. Included is one set of 20 special sleeved lug nuts and washers in lug sizes 1/2-inch, 7/16-inch, or 12mm, and Wheel Arounds are drilled for both 4 1/2- and 4 3/4-inch bolt patterns. Extra lug nuts are available. For more information, contact Kugel Komponents at (562) 691-7006 or www.kugelkomponents.com.
Speedway Motors makes it easy to strengthen the frame of your ’35-40 Ford, eliminate the torque tube, and install modern suspension and power brake components, all without plugging in a welder.
