  1. I had messaged him about this engine, it had a blown thermostat O ring, that could lead tool sorts of issues, If Im not being fastidious about purchasing top line stuff, and work to a budget, I think 1.5k is reasonable, perhaps a decent exhaust manifold, Good luck with your build. Is there a thread?
  2. At Last I am in the position of being able to build another Ford, I honestly thought I was going to be priced out of the market, I started looking for a LHD mk1 cortina, Most have a very dubious provenance can be given to most of them, BUT, just as an odd punt around was getting boring I found something that hit the right buttons, one of the 2 unicorns that have existed in 60s fords, one is/was a 2 door corsair, (had one) and then there is This......... its a bit crusty around the corners, not desperate, could do with sills, or at least a good patching, anybody else got a 109e/1
  3. Thats Lovely, as much as I would love that engine, its a bit too rich for me.
  4. Im just feeling the water at the moment and seeing what's available........ I 99% I want Full ST170 engine, with all manifolds, sensors etc, must be in good serviceable condition, I just want to go plug n Play with my emerald....... what have you, and how much?
  5. Somewhere in the back of my mind, I seem to remember bonnet hinges are generic thru Mk 1 & 2 cortina and Mk 1 & 2 Escort, I think they all fit, worth a check.
  6. So, If was looking for a GOOD, complete st170, on below average milage, what should I be paying...... or should forgo the VVT and buy a 2l zetec
  7. I have been out of the game for a few years now, and have a itch to build something, My car has arrived with a very tired 1300 crossflow, I know Could slot in a 1600, or Pinto, or even build a 1300 screamer, But this its all old hat, I fancy something a bit more modern, Things have moved on a lot since I last played with 4 pots, So, what Engine, Im iunsure. the only criteria is it must be a 4pot FORD, produce in excess of 150hp, and cheap to buy, and what gearbox would bolt up to it, Im after something quick to build thats not going to break the bank and not hard to find I have on my shelf o
  8. without a doubt, as we get older things fall apart,Good to hear you are on the mend, Took early retirement last year, still doing a bit of work, but getting stuck into the van, I do still have a ford in the wings, for the wife, a ratty 100e, building a budget 1300 screamer, 1600 block and rods, 1300 crank 1100 pistons, big valve head, and a A8 cam, going to be interesting granny grocery getter
  9. Unfortunately not, had to sell it because I was made redundant and suffered a stroke too, But made a full recovery, regretted it as soon as it had gone, but have never been in the position to replace it, so something cheaper filled the space, strangely, much harder to build as there is very little aftermarket support, Hows the world treating you?
  10. Hello, Just thought I would say hello after falling off the Ford Scene, Still playing Cars tho, Although its not ford, it still has the right ethos, low n fast, has a 105e axle, .. lol
  11. time to tidy up,Im not sure where I got this from, I have a Atlas Axle that has been narrowed to 33" flange to flange, 4 stud ford shafts are resplined, the centre section is open, not a LSD its in bits and requires putting back together, 9" drums and back plates. I don't have the centre section bearing caps, but these appear to be available, or strip from another axle, cheap enough @ £150, 07954180622
  12. Time to set up my car, and want to find somebody with a set of rollers in the south east, prefer in east sussex, any suggestions?
  13. I have a pair of brand new, never even been offered up on a car Weld in Escort style 4 bar boxes, £40. + Post
  14. I find myself in need of a pair of useable 105e rear drums..... Now Sorted.
