  8. Well the only progress I made this week was drilling the rocker cover for a AN8 bulkhead fitting, rubbing it and priming it and rubbing down the spark plug cover. I tapped out the original oil breather hole with a M12 tap, stuck in a big bolt with locktite and left it ready to be cut off flush.

  10. Looks great, get it on the road first before you strip it I know it’s mot exempt but I’d get it moted and register it for historic tax if it hasn’t been already

  16. I just read Martin Lewis's (Money Saving Expert's) take on this and i'm more confused than ever! Why its so complicated is beyond me! If you are an oversea's national, come here and buy something you pay vat at point of purchase, keep your receipts and you can claim the vat back when you leave the UK, so why is the EU charging vat when vat will be levied in the UK (supposedly on the import duty and delivery charges but not the couriers 'overheads') Just charge us zero rate vat, include delivery charges and then charge the vat when it gets here - we know that we'll be bent over a chair but at l

  18. We are 300! Join us in celebrating this milestone in the Classic Ford Spring 2021 issue — out now — featuring the best stories, photos and more, plus the top 30 feature cars of all time! When Classic Ford launched in 1997, we can well remember the buzz in the office when the first copies came back from the printers. We all knew it was going to be a success. Both the magazine and the scene have changed immeasurably since those days, but looking back through all the old copies to put together the 300th Issue special feature for this issue, it’s good to see the one thing that driv

  20. Depends how much they were. Though Turkey isn't in the EU, as we aren't either now that doesn't make any difference. If your purchase is under £39 then you should be ok, anything over though and stand by for a bill.

  21. Hi there, Sorry no I personally never progressed this. I got as far as designing the adapter and getting it drawn up, but I couldn't fulfill the minimum order quantity. I've attached the drawing below if its any use to you, it will thread into the tank and gives a -10 end (better too big than too small and can always be adapted down). The good news though, is that MotorSport Tools contacted me via TurboSport on the other thread open for this. And they are actually going to be making and stocking this very thing by the end of the year (or so they say...) : http://www.turbosport.

  22. Lot of brass!!! But you could buy a bloody good original I think? Bit scared of escort prices these days! Start giving me sleepless nights with 'If only I hadn't flogged my mk1 mex' type of thoughts!!

  28. The Escort turned a lot of heads in the way home yesterday, that’s for sure. weather has been pretty good, I wouldn’t swap it for early Feb in Dudley.... the other cars in that photo are in the Bodyshop I’ve used. Mk2 Cortina is a new arrival and the red car is an MG ( looks like a Mk2 Jag from a distance.

  29. So I'm at the stage of putting the axle back in to get the position of the ATB axle brackets and went over to crack on with it today, only to find that the rear hangers won't fit into my brand new bushes 😕. Turns out the ones I bought last year are wrong, as they have the same diameter upper (chassis) and lower(spring bush) bolts, instead of the smaller diameter lower bolts. So ordered up the proper ones. So I'm stuck with that job for the moment. I have everything else :-

  33. I fitted a Mazda 1840 twin cam engine and 5 speed to my MK1 Cortina. I'd recommend it, but I know it doesn't sit too well with a lot of ford people. Stock engine with tiny 40 dcoes made 160 bhp and 150 ft torque on the dyno. That's quite a lot of money and work to get a pinto or crossflow to do that. And it already comes with a good 5 speed. And anyway, Fords Duratec engine is a Mazda engine.😆

  39. Good work there! What kind of welder do you have? When I first started welding years ago I had a cheapo Clarke one and I really struggled, my mate gave me a go in his snap on one and my god what a difference it's was so much easier with a decent machine and within 2 mins I was laying down some nice welds so I saved up and bought a second hand cebora mig and never looked back.
