  1. I had the chance of buying a good spec motor for 500 or get new wheels.the shows shows the outcome
  2. It still the same with the odd jangle noise from top end and heavy breathing. Got a missfire now but it still goes well. Do to the wifey having a new kitchen I haven't had any time on the car for 5 weekends. I am starting to accumulating some parts for a new engine. Its basically a stock 2.0 block albeit refreshed and a big valve head with fast road cam. Still on bike carbs though.
  3. Can someone recommend a good quality pinto head gasket. I have one but it's a bit cheap and flimsy. The compression would be a little higher than standard as the head has been skimmed by 1mm. Neil
  4. Hope you enjoy your new wheels to celebrate your recent 41st birthday. Can't beat a set of JBW Rs4. Went for silver. Wearing 185 60 13 with no arch mods Love Dad

    I haven't touched the escort for 3 weeks and hoping to get on it this weekend. Let's hope the rain stops it's been 24hrs non stop and feel sorry for those in low lying areas.
  8. Twas a few weeks ago Mk2 escort won it
  9. If I win the lottery,I would have a massive fook off garage with Lotus cortina Twincam Rs1600 Harrier Rs1800 Mexico mk2 My 4 door Brenda with low compression on cylinder 3 Mk3 rs1600i Rs200 Rs1700t Darrian with bdg
  10. Last night rally I went to was over 30 yrs ago going from Asda over to Cwm Cadlan by the reservoir. This one started near abergavenny. I noted 1 x mexico,1 x rs2000 and about 8 mk2 escorts with many of them being 4 doors. Even a hillman avenger more door. The organisation was great and the cars in excellent condition.lots of shitty FWD cars.
  11. I bought a carbon fibre type and it fitted very well and looks good. I edged mine with some rubber edging to prevent scuff as the hollow spoiler does flex.
  12. It's scary when it does happen.this was due to a cracked petrol pipe near the dizzy. The ramair filter certainly accelerated the fire . Took ages to get the carb clean.
  13. Oh go on,ermine white with black bonnet wearing a set of minilites with 2 up and 2 down cibies
  14. I got the chrome centre caps with minilite logos if you want them for free. Just cover postage. They wouldn't fit mine so I used the plastic caps from aerosol paint cans as mine
