    1500 precrossflow Gt carb flat spot

    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?

    Any zetec conversion parts

    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

    Mk1 Tina gt manifold help

    Make sure you fit a support bar from the top engine mount to block bolt up bolted onto the bracket on the underside of the manifold. If you don't have this the manifold sags and causes air leaks especially if your not using the G.T head with the collars which sit in the inlets.

    Mk1 Tina gt manifold help

    Hi, You can get these water unions from Burton, about £8 each I think. You will also need a T piece as these run water via the heater and water pump top outlet
  13. Hi, desperately need a fuel tank and sender for a mk2 Cortina. On my sons car the tank was holed and now the sender wont seal and is pouring fuel out. Any help with these items would be greatly appreciated.
  14. No, Mk1 Escort struts wont fit unless your converting to rack & pinion which would not be allowed in historic class.

    Mk1 Cortina 2000e box

    You will have to cut a hole for the gearstick which will be very close to the handbrake. A old trick is to bend the handbrake about an inch and this will clear the gearlever in 2nd and 4th. The other option is to use the tailshaft and selector rods from your cortina box and retain the original gearstick position and if you want to fit a mk1 Cortina Gt remote.
