At Burton Power we specialise in the supply of components for the classic, performance, rally and race market and have been doing so since 1963. Our products cover components ranging from single gaskets to complete bespoke race engines, gearboxes, axles, suspension, brakes, electrical, instrumentation as well as a full range of ancillary and sundry items. Although we are best known for supplying performance engines and spares for classic Fords such as Escorts, Cortinas and Capris, we have an ever increasing range for both modern Fords and other popular makes such as Subaru.Although Burton’s founder, Lionel Burton, died in 1965, Burton Power remains true to his fundamental principle of quality and service. Our well known Sea Lion logo, designed originally to illustrate the company’s balancing skills, has become a hallmark for excellence. From our early days of engine balancing, we have progressed to the sharp edge of motorsport, where we carry out specialist engineering work on all types of high performance engines.Our workshops incorporate the equipment and technical skills essential for this type of precision work. Our Powerflow cylinder heads, the result of repeated flowbench testing and race development, are renowned for their quality and performance. Cylinder blocks for sleeving, pistons for valve pocketing, flywheels for modifying, cranks and rods for crack testing – all these services, plus many more are carried out daily for race teams, professional engine builders and private enthusiasts.
This expertise has been greatly enhanced by our long and close association with many of the popular and successful motorsport competitors, developing engines that deliver the power they want, when they want it, from the starting grid to the chequered flag. Working with competitors at all levels of motorsport and helping them build race winning cars allows our customers to benefit from our experience.This approach has kept Burton Power at the forefront in the implementation of new products. It is this hands-on involvement with all aspects of engine modification that has, over the years, enabled us to accumulate a wealth of knowledge – which you, our customer, can benefit from.We have also consistently supported the classic car market, and have invested considerably in the production of obsolete parts to keep these memorable cars on the road or race track.Put simply, Burton Power are not just another provider of motorsport parts and accessories or ‘internet box shifter’ – we are involved in their manufacture and understand their usage.
