    Brakes

    If your looking for new items, Burton power are now suppling new Princess 4 pot calipers and Capri vented discs, I've got origenal refurbished Princess ones on my Mk3 and they work well, the rear axle is from a Mk4 estate, and has the bigger drums so they are ok, to fit disc brakes on the rear is a bit more involved.

    Cortina

    I've been using a standard type 9 box with a 2.9 tweaked Cologne V6 (196 @ the wheels) for 5 years now with no probs, I did fit an aluminium bracing plate to replace the standard pressed steel one on the top of the box and a quickshift lever.

    ECU.

    Hi Scott, I will get Graham (Rawspeed) to fit and tune it all, he did a top job with converting the Mk3's Cologne engine, fitting the induction, throttle body's and linkage etc, then set it all up on his rolling road, fitting throttle body's in place of carbs makes a huge difference to the overall performance and tractability, well worth doing!

    ECU.

    I'm swapping the 38 DGAS carb on the 2.0 Pinto fitted to my Crusader for a Webcon retroject 38/38 Throttle body, any recommendations for an ECU engine management system?

    Advice

    My Mk5 has 1" shorter springs all round, up-rated adjustable shocks, polyurethane bushes all round, it improves the handling a lot! - My Mk3 has been 5 linked with coil-overs on the back, 1" lowered up-rated springs on the front with Koni red shocks, and polyurethane bushes all round, this was essentially done for drag racing but with a V6 now fitted it's good to drive on the road with no tramping and goes around corners!

    Post something today's kids wouldn't understand

    Like it! all normal to me, rich if you could afford the scrunchy Izal or Bronco toilet paper! one of my jobs as a kid was tearing newspapers into squares for toilet paper! Kodak 120 film for my box camera and 78 records, back when a Ford pop was in production, how times have changed! as an apprentice there was only the imperial system, Whitworth BSF BA and UNC threads, I still think in thous and inches and do the mental calculation into metric, no calculators or computers, log tables to work out angles etc, good old days? not sure 😂
