  1. Sorry, should read 691m or 711m block. Thanks,
  2. Hi, Yes, you have the auto linkage arm and bracket. The small flat on the bulkhead end of the linkage with the hole in it is where the kick down cable connected and, went to the gearbox. The manual rod is slightly longer which stops it jumping out. You are also missing a wedge shape spring clip which holds the rod in at the carb end. Maybe worth fitting the right carb as not sure how your one will run with no wiring connected
  3. Yes, £500 on pistons, £1200 on head work before you start on the rest.
  4. Hi, Yes my sons throttle linkage was the same....either stuck on full throttle or fell off. Get yourself a manual throttle linkage
  5. Looking at building up a hybrid using a crossflow bottom end with Cosworth pistons and pre crossflow head. Anyone built and used one? Be interested to hear whether all the work is viable. Still torn between a hybrid or zetec it. Be nice to keep near original looking with the hybrid. Please let me know what you think.
  6. Keep up the hard work! You'll get there. Looks a nice clean shell. So, well worth putting the work in. My son did the same conversion from auto to manual. After a couple of weeks driving the throttle rod fell out loosing all throttle on a dual carriage way. It seems the manual has a slightly longer throttle rod than the auto. May be worth checking this. Got a couple of single choke Mk2 carbs if you don't get any joy with that one
  7. Hi, as above I'm after a 1600 crossflow block preferably 691f or 711m. Also after a good crank and main caps. looking for a good strong block bores irrelevant as long as it will take a rebore to 83.5mm Thanks
  8. Welcome to the Forum Mark, You'll find no shortage of help, encouragement and enthusiasm on here.
  9. A lovely 2 door Mk2 Escort in Yellow and primer drove past me in Billericay the weekend. Is it anyone on here?
  10. Hi, I've got a more or less complete 1300 711m 6015AA. Its been sitting some years covered in dust .But complete minus 1 x valve spring and collets. It has the dizzy, water pump, oil pump, flywheel ,exhaust manifold and weber inlet manifold and weber 32/36 by memory. Let me know if you are interested. Can't help with the front bowl sump and pick up I'm afraid...they are like rocking horse S***t! I'm in Essex as well.
  11. The chokes will be a lot bigger then the 28/36 ones. So, jetting will be very different. Did you not find the carb spindle opens the opposite way to the 28/36?
  12. My Son has the Nodiz on his Mk1 Fiesta. Lierally clip on the crank sensor plug and coil plack plug and connect a power feed!! Make sure you get the 2nd Gen Nodiz as the earlier on was wireless and had no cable plug for the tuner to use. A lot of the rolling road tuners didn't like this
  13. Thanks, just need a block and mains. Got cranks, conrods , heads ,sumps etc. Sticking to just a block unless this is something special??? Most other parts wont be used as building a hybrid pre crossflow.
  14. Hi, I'm after a crossflow 1600 block and mains caps preferably 711m. Building a crossflow and my block has a hairline crack on the tabs where the sump bolts! Any help much appreciated.
