  8. Ok so I've been Askin about tryin to find out about the rear axles on mk2 transits and what will fit (up to what year) I'm not worried about moving the spring mounts just kinda wondering if the axles ever got longer/shorter or massively different so much that there more difficult to fit than is worth it thanks

  11. Plz help pinto now fitted but wont start!!

    It don't really matter which post on the cap is number one as long as it runs if I remember right you wire it from the key so when you engage 12v to the starter you also feed 12v to the coil when you release the key to the second position you go via the ballast resister , so you get 12 v on crank and 7-9 v when she's up and running as soon as she sounds sweet you can work on your carb problems ?
  12. I know a very good trimmer but he's nowhere near you ๐Ÿ™ But if you can't find anybody you could always ship them to him

  14. Plz help pinto now fitted but wont start!!

    Ok first thing get a compression test make sure you have decent compression on all four cylinders you say you already have fuel at the carb make sure inlet manifold is not leaking double check cam and crank timing to make sure that is spot on now this bit might sound daft but just try it turn it over and spray lynx deodorant in the carb it's flammable and acts like easy start see if it fires up pinto engines are very basic you need compression, timing ,sparks and fuel I had this on a pinto it was overfilling and the fuel was basically putting the spark out pintos also like to crank over quite fast so try getting a nice big battery on there I've got a big diesel van battery on mine the fuel in the oil is called bore washing which is why I say to test your compression and Leeds me to think your gettin too much fuel in the cylinders but it might be alright after it's running as it'll be using the fuel instead of bore washing hope this helps let us know how you get on
