    TCA's

    The turrets are like it just came out the factory so not worried about strength, I may just get away with the ride if I do nothing else.

    They do exactly what you require, any upgrade on suspension inc polybushing increase the harshness of ride. Think it's just a case of getting what you what at the limits you think are suitable for the car. You can try them and if not happy try an alternative. The escort tops I used were half the price but involved a fair bit of work to make fit. But my time is free, which I don't mind spending. My Anglia is rose jointed through out and to be honest on the road it's horrendous. People don't seem to mention things like this when suggesting loads of mods😩

    Yes I understand about tracking, the guy before me lowered it and left the tracking , it was miles out, the front wheels are 0 now but the camber is positive very slightly and would like to adjust to the same but negative, I adjusted the toe in/out using tracking sticks which I calibrated, equal thread adjustment and steering wheel is also spot on. I am not interested in caster just achieving slight negative camber, the top mounts I gave you the ebay number for will give me exact adjustment compared to the offset fixed type which would involve caster to get the correct camber. Also would these top mounts make it too harsh for the road ? I don't want to be punching the turret through the body on our billiard table roads Thank you for your help.

    Can't see why you can't retain the original tops as long as you are not going silly with camber, they need to be in good condition though. Problems arise when you start altering the inner tca mount to gain neg camber. There should be enough threads on the steering adjusting rods to cover camber adjustments. As you know the tracking will need re- adjusting once done, adjust equally at both sides to correct. Anti- roll bar will stretch no problem again make sure the rubbers are good or replace.

    would I get away with TCA's with the standard steering gear and front anti roll bar ? I don't think Tom lists them anymore, I know Milton do them but you have to send them your old ones. I spoke to Tom a couple of months ago, a very helpful guy indeed but did not mention the TCA's at the time Would these be ok ? ebay 292605779268

    There two ways you can do it, 1) adjustable tcas 2) accentric top mounts. One advantage of using the top mounts is you can also alter the caster. If you ring Tom @ team deville he will be able to supply anything if its available. The Anglia tops are expensive, I bought escort ones and reduced the diameter plus redrilled at half the price but I'm using escort suspension on mine. Sure the Anglia legs are 1/2" on the insert top so might be able to use and convert the escort ones to fit.

    TCA's

    Hi, Can I just fit adjustable TCA's to the front of my Anglia with standard top mounts to bring the camber out slightly ? It has a shock absorber conversion on the rear with 1 1/2" blocks and has a coil and a half cut from the front. These were done before I owned it, the standard wheels and tyres were being eaten on the outer edges on the front so I fitted 5 1/2" j's with 175/60/13's, I then adjusted the tracking which was toeing in a massive 3 degrees !! The car now drives faultless but I would like to adjust the front to give it slightly more negative camber.

    Unleaded 2.0 pinto cylinder head id

    And also the 1,6 valve`s are smaller , a 1,6 GT or S they also have bigger 2,0 exhaust valve`s , so the ports would also be smaller.

    Unleaded 2.0 pinto cylinder head id

    My 2.0 unleaded head has a P stamped on it beside a punch mark on inlet side. 1.6 head has smaller combustion chambers, so higher compression if used on a 2.0 block.

    Scheel roll top seats

    Sell those 94mm Kobelnscmits you have and commit straight away to a set of Ford Cosworth YB 38mm compression height accralites. I possibly might be selling a set of 1.6 Fiesta rods soon with a brand new set of bearings. RWL81P goes 2.2... Apologies for sidetracking the seat thread, but it's sort of related. If you have more torque, then the Scheel seats will hold you in better.

    Scheel roll top seats

    I found the Rolltops in my first RS more comfortable than the next one I had with Fishnets. Car I have now has Sparco buckets in it, which although snug should really be replaced for an original RS set. Problem is that every time my car fund builds up, I spend it elsewhere on the mechanical side of the car.

    Scheel roll top seats

    Well i'm in no rush. I have a set of brown fishnet recaro's with a black interior and my car is a 77 so should have roll tops, so it's just something that I would like to change. If you are interested in selling them when you are ready drop me a message👍 Thanks

    RS mk2 parts wanted

    no that was another yard, used to buy a wing mirror for a fiver then drive round the corner and load the car up with the alloys we threw over the fence, seats and gearboxs followed. it was too easy! another place we used to go there was 2 scrapyards next to each other, one was dear and one was cheap as chips. used to go in the cheap one, climb over the fence into the dear one. get the parts we needed then go back over the fence and pay for them in the cheap scrapyard. the amount of times they said "dint think we ad one o them" i'd just smile and say yep! i'm a good boy now though.
  28. I'm after a pair of black Scheel roll top seats for my RS2000 if anyone has any or knows of any
