A recent post by him indicated that unless he gets a buyer by end of July, he will shut the site down. :-(

Re: Argenta Turbo engine bearings?

I believe that tri-metal bearings wee used in 132 blocks as used in the volumex cars (i.e. supercharged 2 liter spiders, Argenta, Beta, etc) A quick google search did not turn up vendors that supply these but they are still available for my integrale motors (might be the same since they are based o...

Re: 2 Liter standard over bore sizes and sources

Ok - dug deeper, looks like Vicks sells some 84.8 10.2:1 pistons. Any one know a source for something a bit less than this 9:8 or 9.5:1
