    Your Club Needs You ! #OldSkoolFord

    I've not really been on here that long, but I like this forum, I like it a lot and it's got a lot going for it. I think how active it is speaks for it's self, and proves the guys that run it are doing a good job. I'm on FB, but don't use it for this sort of thing, I might be old school myself. But like what's been said above, articles, project builds, including all the pic's just disappear. Where as on here, you can search and look back at them. I've been on a few forums over the years, and still am. I'm on only one other that is thriving in the present climate. So can I suggest a couple of wee things that I've seen working else where. 1. Is your wee 'Like heart' at the bottom right of each quote could benefit from adding a 'Agree' and a 'Helpful' icon. 2. Is to have a two tear forum. The first part is the forum as it is, and the second part (Needs a name) a paying upgrade. I the paid section members would find in-detail car specs and any other information that the very knowledgeable guys wouldn't want to reveal on a open form. I do release this would take a lot of effort my meany to set up. But on the hole. I think the forum works well the way it is.

    Car covers

    Hi Chinkamon, If your looking for another recommendation... I've got a couple of the custom indoor covers from these guys. https://www.classicadditions.com There indoor covers are very good, but I don't have any experience on there outdoor ones. Craig.

    Fraud fords

    I find this such a shame, but completely understand what your saying also. Back in the day I worked (as a rally mechanic) around MK1/MK2 Escorts and I've had 20 odd of them. I was very knowledgeable on a escorts as a rally car, but have never really got in to exact specs of years and models. Even if I did, my memory seems to be on a 5 minute loop these days anyway! A few years ago, I decided I'd like to own a MK1/MK2 RS again, and got a nice one. But being a bit anal about it looking standard, I decided fix up a few bits that weren't standard looking, this quickly turned in to a full nut and bolt strip, then rebuild. Now to my point (at last), I came on this forum because it was insistently noticeable the it's got a lot of knowledge and willing to help guys on it. As I'm keen to build my car as original looking (I'm using the words "original looking" because I've not the time or money to find/buy OM parts. So know the car will never be Original now) as I can. But it surprises me, and slightly disappoints me that there is a wealth of knowledge out there for the small detail that guys are not willing to share with some!

    MK2 Roof Skin

    Has anyone bought a new roof skin that they were happy with the fit? Or know of a good one? Who does them? Any pointers and all information greatly appreciated. Craig
  9. Yes,as most have said above. I done this all the time on the rally cars in a past life. I would definitely link water pump to carb to bypassed the heater too.

    Any clues what this is?

    If you lock up and land in the field front on, you need a bit more Rear Bias. If you lock up and land in the field back roads, you need a bit more Front Bias. 😁👍

    Suspension & Wiper Help

    Correction, sorry guys... What I should have said is I'm looking for Wiper Linkage! The hole unit from the motor to the wiper arms. Or refurbishment kits for the linkage.
