  1. And there`s this one for sale , https://www.ebay.nl/itm/Springalex-Steering-Wheel-Retro-Mk1-mk2-Escort/123770282297?hash=item1cd148a139:g:I9AAAOSwadlc3agc
  2. I have also a new springa-flex steeringwheel , they are not very strong , but thats a advantage when you crash and when you are not wearing a seatbelt.,, 😎 I have mounted longer centerbolts becourse the center didn`t stay on , i did grind these 3 heads so the center stay ony very good now and i did file out these holes a little bit. And i also put on a heavier washer. And i did let make the RS center logo for it. But they look cool and give it`s a old skool flavor.
  3. And again i did something on the dashboard , more than a year ago i bought a 6-dial , the first serie from a 1300 GT. I was working on it , and i want to re-chrome the front , but sunday i did bought another 6-dial a second serie with a RS1600 rev couter and speedo of the first serie, So i bought yesterday another incomplete 6-dial a first serie to make it original and complete. And i did remove the fake woodtrim and it make more sporty. I have more wishes of the interieur but thats comes later.
  4. Thanks , the inlet took much more time than the manifold , also becourse i did use a air and that uses alot of air , the grinding tool that i did use was with P40 sanding paper. You can use a metal grinding tool but that goes very fast , with cast iron is that the best thing. But i am happy with this
  5. So now i have done the inlet manifold , it took ours to grind it to the gaskets , for a much better flow. I want to do the heads also one day , especially the outlet ports.
  6. Hi Ford guys. I know this is a car site , but i find it importent to share it with you guys.. This for the one`s that want to wake up and dares to listen to a other truth than we hear at skools and MSM. But when you have seen the whole serie of 10 parts , than you may get trouble with sleeping and this is no joke. And when you want to hear and see all , watch first the introduction movie , that about the fact checking 73% truth and 27% that was said by somebody else or couldn`t be found , but says not that it is not the truth. , Europa-The last Battle.

  7. Yes Colin , i think that is ATF , but now it got normal oil in it , when i did get oil for mine escort mk1V6 with a T9 Granada mk2 2,3 5-speed gearbox at the ford dealer it was also red.
  8. Thanks Ben , yes i want it to be , a bit time period , except the seats , steeringwheel and radio.
  9. And this is what have done the last weeks , i have put in a quaife gearbox , i wanted this for a while and mine old gearbox has a problem so the timing was good. Also i did have to exchange the rear form the old gearbox becourse the quaife did have a electric speedsender and i want to keep the cable. And i also did put in a new quick shift lever , so i have more clearance with the tunnel , and looks better than the orignal one with the quick shift kit. And on more litt;e thing i did was , welded 2 spacers on the steering rack , to prevent that calipers can hit the compresion struts.
  10. I can`t help you with that , but when parts are hard to find , than i try to buy them if a get the change , on some accasions i didn`t have the money , and than the next day they are gone .
  11. Yes that can be real dilemma , money wise , time wise , a good workspot
