  2. Clutch cable problem

    These are some of the problems with buying after market parts, not the same as oe. As with most parts these days made in the other side of the world on the cheap ! Run a drill through it and if you need another one try another supplier, problably find it cheaper anyway.
  3. Clutch cable problem

    I recently bought a new clutch cable from Burton Power for my Mk1 Escort 1100cc Estate which has a standard crossflow engine. I originally intended to carry this as a spare, but then decided to fit the new one and keep the old one as a spare. My problem is that the original pin will not fit through the eye of the new cable. My thoughts are that my pin is imperial and the eye of the new cable is metric? I could easily drill the eye of the new cable to take the old pin but I thought it might be a good idea to ask here first. Has anyone else experienced this scenario? Replacement pins do not appear to be available so buying a new one is not an option.

  8. Expressed V Magnum

    Well as it stands im 50/50. I think a rear panel is the way to go on my car. But weather i go skin or full kit and caboodle is another thing. Need to take a closer look ant the inner frame etc and go from there. Also the one on my car hasnt got the pressings where the number plate goes even though its a 74??? That being sead, its definately had a N/S/R 1/4 panel in its life so theres every chance its had a rear panel aswell. Rich

  11. Mk 1 project

    I have seen a picture that was taken at a ford body repairshop [windows still in place grinding] , and there was one guy puting the bubble arches on a new mk1 , i tnink that this was the only way you could order this option , i think also that the mk1 that came with the bubble arches came off a other line/or factory/or at the ford dealers workshop ?

  18. Evening all. So, in its life its had a few "mods" to the wiring. Ive chopped a load out from under the dash and engine bay. Had spot lights fitted. Theres 3 wires that come out of the back of the alternator but one of them has been cut. Its the skinny one out of the 3. No idea where it goes. Ive cut back the loom tape about 12 inches and cant see what it connects to? Ill take a look tomorrow to see what colour the wire is. Havnt looked at it for a few weeks and forgot the colour. Cheers Rich
