  1. Looking great and that exhaust is a work of art
  2. Katana, you must be a city boy :-))))))
  3. We came from the Croft but now live on the mainland, with that we learnt how to drive tractors at a very young age but my brother has never lost the enthusiasm for tractors but they have to be either fergies or MFs Had to laugh the last time I was home visiting my mam as a gathering would always appear but back in the day it would be escorts, cortina, capris, cavaliers or mantas while this time it was tractors the boys showed up in

  5. He is running twin 45s ad she as had a lot of done to the pinto in the past as I can’t remember them being that quick
  6. Looking forward to seeing her all together as your mk1 is a Bonny looking car. I big plus about throttle bodies is starting it up as I smile when I have my brothers Rs and she is coughing and spluttering on initial start up, don’t get that with the ITBs , well once set up anyway
  7. There you go, hopefully that helps. Also need two sets of driveshaft bolts, first set to bolt the spacer to the axle and second set for the prop to the spacer
  8. They can be done without the raiser I am told but alas I fitted it as I wanted to make sure I had enough clearance at the bulkhead this was my engine and box trial fitted, she was close to the bulkhead so then went for the raiser plate as you can see how far the tail of the box comes through the floor This is a picture of the spacer I got on eBay for the drive shaft Got my car running now and finally took it out for a shake down today so delighted but needs a session on the rolling road
  9. You are better of with the raiser plate as that will then give you a decent gap between the bulkhead and the back of the head as the tail of the box will be higher then For the driveshaft, you can buy spacers already made, got mine on eBay but try burton power as they may have them
  10. She is looking fine. Is that her in for good as it will be a pain to fit the short hose from the water rail to the heater once the engine is in Finally got mine running this week as the fault was the shielded wiring from the crank sensor to the ecu, nightmare to find but alas now delighted
  11. Looking good and not long now and she will be up and running
  12. Credit to you as that been some work and looking good
  13. Looking good and soon be looking right at home in the engine bay
  14. Repairs back in the day were just to keep them on the road as not many people were looking 30 years on or saw their old escorts as classics but something to get them from A to B, road legal, plenty, affordable and left you with beer tokens to spend on yourself rather than the car You are doing a grande job of the rebuild and it with be worth it as she is rare car nowadays and Bonny in red. Loving the build so keep the updates coming
  15. Shall have her running by the summer, then it’s Chuck the interior back in and it, wheel alignment and suspension geometry sorted then rolling road and all should be good keep the posts coming with your car as she will be a cracker
