    It appears that Wilmot Breeden Ltd was around at least in to the 1970's. Brothers Breeden were alive in 1967. Perhaps our UK folks could do some looking to see if any of the records or even workers are still around that may be able to assist in finding out exactly what was used for the steering wheels and how their process worked?

    Wide range of colours there Matthew. Was there just one colour originally? Or was it like most other parts that came from a number of different suppliers? Cheers

    A friend of mine modified his 67 Mustang and used a hydraulic throw out bearing. I am not sure if the "hydraulic concentric bearing" mentioned above is the same or not.
    However when he attempted to bleed the bearing/unit they could not get the air out of it. When installed the unit was turned such that air was trapped. They had to pull the tramny and bleed the air from the unit then reinstall...

    The middle cylinders have 110+ compression. I will measure all 4 tonight.

    I had a Volvo B20 engine with a burned gasket between #2 and #3 that showed proper compression in a test but ran poorly under load. So a compression test is not necessarily definitive but is certainly a good starting point before removing the head.

    I have found the Pertronix to be flawless in several cars...
