I think the 750mc racers would be after the rocket box not the type 2 - would be interested to know if anyone has the info?

Alan,

Do you know where there is a rolling road locally that can do Dellortos? I live near Daventry.

Its not as straighforward as that. I guess the majority of the grid would say that the Rocket box is preferable but someone will be using each of the Ford RWD units. For example, Max uses a Type 9 and I ran a Type 2. If you're circa 90kgs+ and struggling to get weight down to the minimum then its a good solution.

Thats interesting, where do you get spares from? I have a couple of type 2 boxes with the same failures, would love to know a contact so I can get the parts I need for them!

Sorry to Hijack the thread - the engine looks well priced by the way.

I had 3 boxes and cannibalised as needed. I found good contacts in The Escort Agency and Bob Dowen (both on Google.)

Alternatively try TMC Motorsport or Procomp on here.
