SAE Review

After months of preparation, practice and planning, the season's race championship can rely on just one fastener doing its job. If that fastener shears or loosens, the whole race can be lost - not to mention valuable machinery and even lives. This informative publication is a guide to hardware for race and street cars. Famed race team manager Carroll Smith tells you what each nut, bolt, fastener, and plumbing piece is, how it works, how to torque it, where to use it, and where not to use it. Chapters include: Characteristics of Metal; Stress, Strain, Load, and Fatigue; Thread Physics; Bolts and Bolted Joints; Bolt Specifics; Female Threads; Locking Devices; Washers and Miscellaneous Fasteners; Rivets and Riveting; High-Performance Plumbing, and Future Trends in Fastening. Over 320 photographs, technical drawings, and illustrations are included. Published by Motorbooks International. Distributed by SAE.
