February 2015 n Performance & Hotrod Business n 75 Reverse-Mount Swing Pedal Assembly Wilwood Engineering, Camarillo, California, offers its Reverse-Mount Swing 6:1 Single Pedal Assembly that can be used as a clutch or brake pedal. The pedal features a lightweight aluminum frame with a strong, I-beam-design forged aluminum pedal, and a laterally adjustable, non-slip waffled foot pad. The assembly features a 6:1 pedal ratio to suit various mounting and leverage requirements while positioning the master cylinder inside the firewall away from engine heat. It is coated in Wilwood's proprietary black e-coat for a long-lasting, durable finish. Diesel Heater C&R Racing, Indianapolis, introduces its state-of-the-art Diesel Heater. The unit utilizes a self-contained, diesel- fired heater to handle all pre-heating requirements. Its 12-volt design makes it entirely independent to an external power source, providing up to 4 hours of continuous operation on a full charge. Once the unit is connected, it will gradually heat water in the racecar to a temperature of approximately 170 degrees and then maintain it until the unit is switched off and disconnected. Its small size allows for easy storage. Replacement Fuel Tanks Aeromotive, Lenexa, Kansas, presents its line of Stealth Replacement Fuel Tanks. The line recently doubled in size to meet the demand for modern replacement fuel tanks for vintage vehicles, and specifically in EFI conversion and late-model engine transplant applications. New tanks include models for first-generation GM A-bodies (1964-'67), 1970-'73 Camaros and Firebirds, 1965- '66 GM full-size cars, '62-'72 Nova/ Chevy II models, and now 1932 and '33-'34 Ford street rods. The new tanks feature a Stealth 340-lph fuel pump and internal sump. Adjustable Ladder Bars Chassis Engineering, Riviera Beach, Florida, offers its "Triple" Adjustable Ladder Bars for street and strip. The Outlaw allows five I.C. height adjustments, easy-bind free pinion angle changes and leverage changes. Its moly upper and lower bars plus 1/4-inch-thick brackets provide adjustment capabilities and improved strength uncommon in ladder bar systems. Circular Cold Saw Scotchman Industries, Philip, South Dakota, presents its American-made CPO 350 Circular Cold Saw that features a double-clamping, self-centering vise that provides burr-free, high quality parts and a chip drawer. The saw has 135-degree mitering ability and a miter-locking device that automatically stops at 45 degrees left, 90 degrees straight and 45 degrees right. Other features include a double reduction gearbox, and a two-speed motor that utilizes up to a 14-inch-diameter blade, giving it a 4-7/8-inch OD round capacity. Ford Polyurethane Motor & Transmission Mount Set Energy Suspension, San Clemente, California, presents its early Ford small-block V-8 Polyurethane Motor and Transmission Mount Set. The sets stabilize the drivetrain and are designed for mid-1960s to early '70s small-block V-8 Ford/Mercury vehicles. The mounts are durable yet more compliant than solid mounts, and help prevent drivetrain damage by stabilizing the engine and transmission. Available in red or black polyurethane, the mounts are also sold separately.
