    I’ve done the repair, etch primed and primed just needs some top coat now, looking underneath it still has the original floor pans but has had repairs to inner sills so will be left as is! Plate made and ready to be welded looks better in the flesh I’ve got a bit carried away and pulled the engine and box out! Bought a 1.6 pinto which will have a check and get new bearings and repaint, then fit the original 4 speed back in whilst the engine is out I’ll give the engine bay a clean maybe straighten the heater bowl up a little and maybe repaint the front crossmember, anti roll bar, rack and arms (why not lol), and fit new bushes as these poly ones are crap ive removed the spot lamp brackets, just need to sort the front valence took the head off to find the apparent 2.1 has just +.75 pistons, went ok but just goes to show what rubbish people tell you! The head mind you is a different matter, lovely porting work, very big valves, the cam is a Kent FR32 i bolted the idf inlet as I’ll port match it to this head for the mk1

    The stonewalling by Ebay is now reaching epic proportions. I filled out a form on an email they sent by their request and now they claim that its not enough they want it filled out with a physical signature where before they stated just to type one in on the form provided. There have been several messages from them since I last posted but here is a copy of the latest round of emails. From: vero@ebay.com <vero@ebay.com> Sent: Thursday, 16 January 2020 4:37 AM Subject: RE: Re: Re: Re: Seller using Photos belonging to me to sell his product SR# 1-240285839306 Hello, I have reviewed the notice you have submitted and unfortunately, as you are located in Australia, due to recent legal changes we must request that you provide us with a different form to enforce your IP in Australia. Although we have provided you the electronic form, we are unable to accept this as the AU notice requires a physical signature and a physical witness signature. Attached is a copy of our Australian NOCI form. Please complete all sections, physically sign, and send the form to us as a PDF attachment to vero@ebay.com Thank you for your concern in helping to keep eBay a safe and reputable forum in which to conduct business. We appreciate your participation in the VeRO Program. Sincerely, Alan K. eBay VeRO Team My Reply read as follows Dear Vero This matter is now being drawn out to such and extent it is causing great distress and concern. I have complied with all your wishes and each time you come up with yet another reason to drag this matter out further. The goalposts are changing with each and every email and even contracting yourselves at times. As previously explained I DO NOT have the computer software to modify a PDF file to then print it out to sign it and also take it to a Justice of the Peace to witness that as well and then somehow reconverting that back into a PDF format to re-attach to this email? If a manual signature or "Physical Signature" as you put it is required and witnessed by a Justice of the Peace then the form will HAVE to be filled out manually by hand with pen paper and ink and posted to you. Its the only possible way. As a matter of Law you cannot force or demand one type of computer only submission discriminating against all others. It begs the question if a "Physical Signature" is required how can it then be returned to you as a PDF format as then its no longer a physical signature? Its totally contradictory. If a hand written form and signature is all you will accept then please provide the postage address for this form to be sent by international registered post. Is it the same as that listed on your website? eBay Designated Agent 583 W. eBay Way Draper, UT 84020 Could you also provide me with the local Corporate Postal Address of Ebay Australia. As this matter shows no signs of progression I must anticipate further obstructions from this procedural minefield I fear that a two tier approach may become necessary, requesting a review through ACCC (The Australian Consumer Authority) through my own appointed legal representative. With thanks

    Hi, as said, the proper action is not really achieved until the brake drum is fitted, when correctly set up and with all springs in good order, there is not a lot of movement of the shoes laterally, the self adjusting mechanism (when working as it should), will keep the friction material of the shoe in very very light contact with the machined face of the drum so light that it is contact with the drum but with zero effort on the rotation of the drum, otherwise you have excess pedal travel when you brake while the shoes move to contact the drum. Can you try the operation of this brake once you have the drum in place and acting more in the real working world. Cheers Al.

    Marcus you need to start with these Main 120 air corrector 170 choke 30mm F9 or F16 emulsion tube Idle jet 45F9 I’d go for you should be pretty much spot on with that on a standard 1600 xflow

    Very nice, and I love that colour combo, it really suits the shape and lines of the car, as no doubt a lot where in BLACK. That lighter green looks very similar to a colour Ford used in the late 70's early 80's as Highland Green !!??, it used to look very nice on Capri MK3 "S" models, the black "S" decals really showing off the green. Bet that's got Rod brakes !!?? PLUS AN ANCHOR. ??!!.

    Picking up on Friday now I’ve got the paperwork for it, it’s not a pretty sight. Everything is there and year dated, to say it’s suffered with rust worm would be an understatement...lol But just happen to have a shell waiting to be cut up and make the Harrier good.

    Not a bad guess, the rear spoiler can be deceptive but this was a specific arch kit for competition of this particular model. The rear spoiler wasn't always used though.

    Good advice mate, I think it would be good to give my background information as I am ex-body repairs & paint sprayer with over 20 years of experience in my motor trade business and can tinkerer with mechanical stuffs, but I left the trade due to back problems, also as I am busy father of three kids and full time job, I just want to get the car done with engine running and driving it at same time I can do bit of body work doing up and as well as enjoying the time to drive it on good days 👍 Seán

    im just doing the very mod to a pre oct 73 car, changing from tip fwd to mk2 reclining runnered, the lock as I called it or your clip plate RP, has to be removed for this, otherwise the runnered seat will foul on it, as do the 4 plastic pads screwed to the floor, the mod also leaves 10 big gaping holes in the carpet at that point, so really a new carpet would have been fitted, the lock/clip plate sits at as angle because the seats are also at an angle, so if fitting a new lock/clip plate this needs taking into consideration, along with a few other things

    Hi all, They will sell your car for you on a commission basis, but they also buy cars to sell on from themselves, but they don't really offer the buyer anymore than if you bought direct from the seller and did all the normal checks for correct ownership etc-etc, just a glorified in door car showroom.

    Thank you both. I was aware of cam and crank sensor correlation, but hadn't come across the term Sync Cam before. Most of the stuff I work with is heavy diesel that already runs with the OEM control, so don't go down the road of wasted spark, dual injection etc. Every day's a school day on here and I'm always happy to learn. 👍

    At least they cut the wood to shape given it a good go lol, if they had painted it white you’d hardly notice and the mole grip would work if it was a rat rod haha

    First of all, thank you those who came. Show stands only happen if you come along so thanks for making it happen. I made it there and back with no issues, I was reluctant to push to car however on the way home it made it flat out up Holden hill so hopefully the gremlins have gone. Back to the show. What a contrast from 2018, weather was fantastic, wall to wall sunshine. A few changes to the day with the introduction of a legends session. This was set up as a "special stage" which allowed cars to weave their way through the paddock, out the pit exit, tight turn before heading through the pits and then out on track. This was for rally car legends, including Coiln Mcrae's 97 impreza and Ford Focus, Peter Solbergs Impreza, Stigs RS200, a few works Lancia's Plus more. Drivers included Jimmy and Alister McRae, Nicky Grist and Craig Breen The stage was adjusted for the Clubmann group, with only the track being used with S bends at intervals. Some lovely motors on show. See photos below, plenty of fords including the Rs capri club, RS1700t, lancia Stratos and deltas, even a tarmac spec Ferrari ....... One trade stand was offering a kit build RS200 project known as RS RETRO, all road ready for 50K. 2020 Rally Day is set to change date and being their anniversary year it's set to be a big one. Once a date has been realised I will be in touch to see who's interested. I will go through my videos and see what's good before posting on here but my pics (mainly fords) are below. Ta

    Just the car for when you can't decide whether you want a luxury coupe, a pickup, or a supercar.
