Part of the Week

August 3rd, 2015

One of the really early suppliers of hop-up parts in the Los Angeles area was the Weber Tool Company that traces its roots back to Harry Webber and 1925. At first they were known for their cams but soon became the go to guys for their custom flywheels. We’re looking at one of their Aluminum Flywheels made out of 40E material that had a tensile strength of 44,000 PSI. They even went the extra mile in production and dynamically balance ever one they made. The victims of their usage were ’32 to ’50 Ford and Merc flattie V8’s with an occasional six thrown in. These would set you back $30. If you had a V8-60 they said for boat use only.
