    Right on Ray........so we'll see you there this year? On this subject, I've been getting a bit of stick on my phone, through my FB profile and also through the OSF FB page. Bring it on I say. I don't need anyone's permission to run an internal event aimed solely at members of this club.

    TBH you don't have to justify yourself or OSF to anyone, you took polite cautionary steps before booking the event. If they didn't think it justified a response then it's tuff shit if it's on the same weekend. THEiR LOSS I would say.

Camping is available, the showers are imaculate and second to none. Would be a worthwhile show to attend. 15th July at the British Motor museum. Gaydon. CV35 OBJ

The second Blue car was a unfinished project and needed much more work but is there now all but for a re paint and the engine needs putting back together has a fast road cam stage two head light weight flywheel for a Lotus 1650cc

    Zetec's are Zetec's - Duratec's aren't! Zetec E's were at least used in Escorts abit mk4's LOL! Zetec SE's don't count as developed by Yamaha and Duratec's are the Mazda design. ST170's are true Zetec's. Pinto's may have been fitted by Ford but only to a tiny proportion of the total Escort production. Why this Pinto / Zetec argument persists amazes me, there's few enough of our cars left to worry about what bloody engine it tools around with!

    My old Capri White Heat I paid £500 for it in bits and still in that Mauve color I had it painted White again, sold it on in the mid 80s by then it had become as fashionable as a pair of flared trousers. If I had it now I would put it back to standard as it was a 3000 GT XLR not many of them made and the Dealer at Luton had modified it slightly Lumo cars fetch good money now like the Broadspeed of their day

    Would love to be there again, I might even make the Tour this time.... Camp site is great. I may leave much earlier next time though, the 8/9 hour trip down killed it a little bit.

    Thanks for the offer dale.off to Chicago for 5 days so if it's in the same condition I might have a look next week if that's ok. Mine is sorn at the moment and doing all those small jobs one of which is fitting a supercharger. Do you need a lift with your engine. It would be a bit lighter now given how much metal you have taken off lol

    Not fully lifted off my chest yet, but as long as the heater is on, I'm OK. Yes, it's coming on slowly, but there's no major rush. Gearbox will also come out with my old block and that's going to need a bit of TLC too. Will probably go for a taller 1st gear on that and an uprated bearing instead of the needle rollers. I should post it to Col

    Hı all I am new to the forum ,and hopefully this topic is on the right section. .. I own a 1975 ford granada with the 2.0 v6 cologne manual 4 speed ,I am starting to get the granada restored, and also need to go ahead and do something with the engine this is the reason for this topic ,I want to know what I can do to get some more power out of the 2.0 v6 cologne engine I am open to any ideas like turbo or carbs or anything that you guys have experienced with ,a lot of your are going to say no need for all just get a bigger engine , well I thought about this has lots of ideas like 2.9 cosworth or a zetec but for now I want to know what I can to with this engine I have and keep matching number ...so if any one out there knows about these engines please give us some help the engine I have is standard but I think will need rebuilding anyway ... thankyou all

    I did have the same trouble with 13x9 wheels with 235/50/13 tyres , at did touch the inner/arch so did hammer it but that was not enough and that did look not nice , so i took the grinder and i did make a cut in in to get rid off the extra material and weld it. But also the tyre`s did rub against the outer wings at the front , so i did fix that with a hammer/tool. There a anti-roll bars for sale but these are thin for mine taste so i did make one mine self with loose parts form rally design race siërra parts.

    "Real men choose elite Escorts" - I read that on a toilet wall once and there was no mention of Anglias Cortinas or Capris. Heaps of other wisdom written there too.
