For Sale: Set of Tecalemit-Jackson Mechanical Injectors and Manifolds

Tecalemit-Jackson Mechanical Injectors and Manifolds

This set of Tecalemit-Jackson mechanical injectors and manifolds are up for sale through a Queensland-based member of the club.

They are possibly off one of the Geoghegan race cars of the early ’60s and would suit that early Lotus F2 car that you have sitting in the garage.

The price is $650 plus freight (if required) from near Brisbane.

Send Seth an email, and he’ll put you in touch with Bill.
