Cylinder Head Heating Before Retouque
John Edwards @ Costa Mesa R&D Automotive Machine Shop was over visiting his friends @ Ital Mechanica where he found them pre-heating a cylinder head before final torquing. This process helps eliminate blown head gaskets because the head bolts are retorques after a heat cycle. Just about any temperature over 125 degrees F. will do the trick. Be sure to let the engine cool down completely after heat cycling and the retorque the cylinder head. Ital Mechanica, 15562 Producer Lane, Huntington Beach, CA 92649.

9 Days in Summer (full)
Courtesy of Mike Banks "One of, if not the classic motorsport film Nine Days in Summer is the definitive story of the development of an iconic racing car and record-breaking engine. Design guru Colin Chapman and engine supremo Keith Duckworth came together to produce the now legendary Lotus 49, powered by the fabled Ford DFV which would go on to become the most successful engine in Formula One history. The car went from concept to racetrack in just months and, amazingly, was victorious on four occasions during the 1967 Grand Prix season, including its debut. Nine Days in Summer, introduced by motorsport expert Simon Taylor, charts this extraordinary achievement in comprehensive detail. Incredible full-colour race action from nine Formula One rounds combines with fascinating footage of Cosworth and Lotus craftsmen painstakingly creating these stunning examples of automotive art. The film also allows you unprecedented access to Chapman, Duckworth and legendary drivers Jim Clark and Graham Hill. Nine Days of Summer, from the Ford Archive Gems series, is the ultimate guide to the creation of a motorsport icon and a milestone in motorsport film-making."
