  4. Ordered new sensor-went to fit and wrong type-only 2 pin and wrong size connector. Re ordered the right one listed as RPM/Crankshaft sensor with 3 pins and bingo. Easy to get at also which was nice.

  8. After a decade of reliable, faithful service it's time to sell our Sierra Azura estate. 1.8cvh with 5 speed manual gearbox It's a 1993 car so one of the last ever Sierras - someone probably walked past a brand new Mondeo and bought this (and quite right too!) It's a special edition Azura - it's pretty basic though, I think it was just the alloy wheels that they added It's done 130,000 miles (nearly half of those with me behind the wheel) and until a few weeks ago, never given me any mechanical trouble at all. We've been all over the place in it and it really is the best car I've ever owned in terms of looking cool and not letting me down The reason it's up for sale now is that the engine seized (I'm told just the bottom, the head seems to be ok - I was also told the cam belt was totally fine) I can't really afford to have the 1.8cvh rebuilt or buy a replacement engine and I'm not man enough to attempt anything myself either ;-( This could be the opportunity for someone with more skill than me to sort the original engine themselves or to drop something more exciting in there It's been properly serviced every year and anything needed for the MOT has been done to a good standard - yes it's had some welding underneath, it's also had new sills and rear arches and a replacement rear bumper - it doesn't currently need anything doing to it apart from a few cosmetic bits and bobs. It has 4 new matching Goodyear tyres. It has an obligatory 90s big bore back box but apart from that (and a load of stickers) it's completely standard I've filled the boot with all the Sierra spares that I've accumulated over the years and this will all be thrown in with the price. There's all sorts, a front bumper, headlights, rear lights, indicators, wing mirrors, door glass, handles, dash clocks, trim etc. MOT until December 2021 Located in South East London and I work from home so viewing can be arranged pretty much whenever suits you £2500 Contact me on here or get me on 07939 206540 Obviously it can't be driven as it is so it will need to be trailered away to its new home I really love this car so it's been a tough decision and I'll not be giving it away

  15. I haven't with these as I haven't found any that deliver a totally smooth finish. All the 3D stuff I have seen have very noticeable lines from the printing process. I am however looking to get a washer done though that is used in door locks of Mk2 Escorts that operates between the lock barrel itself and the door handle. They are brown in colour original but always perish and allows the lock to sink into the handle and often jams it. Its a small thing but Im sure 3D printing could solve this.

  16. So i have done some work on the interieur , first the dashboard , i took of the fake leahter , the reason that it was on it , was becourse it was green when i bought it years ago with damage and it wasn`t looking right anmore it came loose so did i paint it and it`s looks better. And i did paint ohter pieces of the dash and steering wheel. Also i bought a original brown center coin tray and brown klok and i did paint hem black , but the chrome line was not so easy to do , it`s not super but for no i leave it like it is. But before i could install it i , the handbrakelever and cylinder did need go backward , so did drill new holes and weld the old holes shut. The next things to buy are new switch housings and kickpanels.

  17. Brenda was looking a bit sad, 43 years of faded , touched and mis matched paint. So, me and the old man rolled the escort in red rustoleum combi paint. From 10ft away it looks good. Need the paint to harden, rub down 3000 wet and dry, bit of a polish and will look better

  24. I'd love to see how you fit them. I bought some off eBay and was very confused how to fit them. I found a way. But definitely not THE way to do it 😬

  26. Not actually Escort related but my current fave is Alan Millyard. He does crazy things with motorbike engines using little more than a hacksaw and a file. Really nice guy too, one of us for sure. Try this for starters: And yes that really is a home built V12.
