Vent Tube Anti-Spill Valve
Holley just made racing with a carburetor a lot safer with its Vent Tube Anti-Spill Valves. These one-way ball valves take the place of the standard vent tubes, and in the event of a wreck or if the car flips upside down, fuel can't spill from the vent, greatly reducing the risk of fire. For more information on the Vent Tube Anti-Spill valves, visit www.holley.com. To see video of them in action, visit www.holleytv.com.
SCE Reusable Carb Gaskets
SCE recently released its precision molded carburetor gaskets, which are designed to save time and frustration with carb work or jet changes. The reusable gaskets are designed to replace the paper gaskets that can tear or stick to the bowls or metering blocks, leaving material for you to scrape away. The thermoplastic gaskets won't shrink, stick, or tear, making jet changes easy. They are also E85 compatible. For more information, call 661/728-9200 or visit www.scegaskets.com.
Jiffy-Tite Quick Connect Fluid Fittings are a perfect fit for the rigorous racing demands in the Sprint Car market.

Total Seal AP Rings
Total Seal recently announced a new set of ring packs that feature 1.1mm (0.043-inch), 1.1mm, 2.0mm ring sets available for most bore sizes ranging from 4.000-inch bore through 4.250-inch. These packs feature the AP steel top ring, ductile iron Napier Second rings (in most sets where available), and a new oil ring set.
Oil rings will be available in standard low and high-tension configurations. These sets will feature shallow radial depths: tops: 0.134-inch, Seconds: 0.145-inch, oils 0.130-inch (1.1mm, 1.1mm, and 2mm) this combination dramatically reduces friction, and significantly increases bore conformability. The AP steel top ring features the C-33 PVD coating, applied using vacuum deposition that won't flake or chip off; while the ductile iron Napier Second rings offer increases durability and improves oil control. These new sets are available in Gapless and conventional styles.
Total Seal's new ring packs are suitable for normally aspirated as well as forced induction and nitrous applications. The reduced stack height of these rings permits the use of a piston with a very short compression height allowing the use of longer connecting rods, and or increased strokes while keeping the wristpin out of the oil ring groove.

Carb Defender Race Concentrate
Designed for carbureted engines that use Methanol, E85, or Oxygenated race fuel, Driven's Carb Defender Race Concentrate prevents corrosion and deposits in the fuel system and intake tract. Special corrosion inhibitors work to prevent damage and diminished performance caused by fuels containing Methanol and Ethanol, as well as the moisture these fuels attract. This powerful new additive controls com20bustion chamber residue, plus cleans and protects surfaces of the fuel system and intake tract. Carb Defender Race Concentrate also contains a multi-functional lubricant so "top lubes" are not required. Just one bottle of additive treats up to 55 gallons of fuel, and the bottle features a handy view strip to let users measure out doses for as little as 5 gallons of gas. Driven Racing Oil Carb Defender Race Concentrate works with Methanol, E85, and race fuels, and it's compatible with spec fuel and water tests. For more information, visit www.drivenracingoil.com.
Allstar Performance Power Steering Pump
Allstar Performance's new steel power steering pump with integral fluid reservoir is designed for street use and classes of racing that mandate a stock-style pump with stock type reservoir, or when mounting an external reservoir is not desired. The pump produces up to 1,300 psi, is equipped with -6 pressure and -6 return fittings, a 3-gpm orifice to work with most steering systems, and a 6-inch diameter V-groove pulley for use on high-rpm engines.
