That's a lovely looking car!

Robsport have a quality timing chain kit with a decent tensioner and they give a discount to TDC members.

If you need decent bearings for the bottom end, I have a good selection of mainly AE Glacier and some Vandervell of different sizes.

It's a good old one and Unipart rebranded them ..... So a good chance it might be a genuine one :D I think the brand to avoid was "Rolon" Just check the tensioner.
