  1. Pinto - The Resurrection

    Driving with a half full petroltank , thats only bad for the balance.
  2. Pinto - The Resurrection

    Thanks , it`s about 14 pounds cheaper , we will see , a even cheaper way to save weight and to save money is to loose weight mine self about 3kg arround the middle ....
  3. Pinto - The Resurrection

    Yes offcourse it`s alot of money to save a little bit of weight , your right about the lay shaft i have seen these made from alloy and magnesium , maybe the alloy is one thing to go for , http://www.ebay.nl/itm/Quaife-For-Ford-Sierra-Type-9-5-Speed-Alloy-Nose-Cone-Short-4-Cylinder/381940049047?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649 burtonpower have them also chrees
  4. Pinto - The Resurrection

    I am more thinking about the weight , and becourse mine gearbox makes a noise , and yes mine engine got more than than 140hp , but i am not so worried if it can handle it , i like to make it lighter but also must it look nice. And i just saw this at burtonpower http://www.burtonpower.com/tracsport-hd-alloy-maincase-ford-sierra-type-9-5-speed-gearbox-gbt9105.html cheaper
  5. Pinto - The Resurrection

    it gearing time , i was thinking on a alloy gearcase but they expensive , and the upgraded shaft bearing is maybe something to think about cheers .. http://www.ebay.nl/itm/Quaife-For-Ford-5-Speed-Type-9-Sierra-Gearbox-Casing-Alloy-Main-Case-5-Speed/292067002754?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649

  7. Mk1 granada 2.0 v6 cologne

    It`s just what you want , the easiest way is to go for a 2,8 carb 135HP , but if you want to keep the Original engine , than you can start with the exhaust/manifolds and build somethings , maybe you can fit the heads [bigger valves] maybe lower compression/ machineshop from a 2,3/2,6/2,8 complete with manifold and carb , if this fit than you can fit also the triple carb set/manifold but not cheap , you can balance the crankshaft/pistons/rods , port flowing , but don`t expect to get much horshpower , standard 90hp , in the first serie cologne engine there was also a 1,8 V6. The crankshaft doesn`t fit from a 2,3 these are thicker these are the same as 2,8 , i did new a guy that did have a siërra 2,3 with after market turbo. I think that a 2,3 carb does fit on the 2,0 manifold.
  8. Mk 1 project

    The DCOE are no problem for the strutbrace , or may be if you have not a straight inlet manifold , the valve cover is the first thing that will hit the strutbace.
  9. Mk 1 project

    It looks always good a roll cage , you have a low strut brace , that`s a good thing , mine was a bit high and i have reinforcing top suspension plate so it did hit the bonnet/beam.
  10. Escort estate mk2 with mk1 exterieur

    Thanks Doughnut King , and it was alot of work and there is stil enough to do , the next thing to do is take out the gearbox becourse there is a noise i think there bearing is gone. Or i go first furher on the doors , they need more work.
  11. help with front anti roll bar

    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.
  12. Pinto - The Resurrection

    A pinto 2,1 for free/some work is not so bad , and more original than a zetec , but heavier , but a zetec is that a original ford engine or based on a Mazda engine ?
  13. Pinto - The Resurrection

    It`s getting there and how much power must come out of this engine ?
  14. My 1975 1600 sport resto

    Yes it`s look much better , and these way you can work also much better on the underside , i may not complain i have a very old lift/bench.
