  1. Sorry, put this in the wrong section. Can a mod move it to the ford parts wanted, thanks!
  2. Hi, asking the impossible! I'm in need of a 2 litre big valve head for my escort. Head that came off is 44.5/38 valves preferably unleaded and ported. Cam is not required. Everywhere I have checked seems to be 6-10 weeks for fabrication and mine has been skimmed to the limit. If anyone has anything that may suit, please let me know. Allan Glasgow
  3. No one interested in these? Fitted pic below. Swop might be an option.
  4. Alley Cat Alloys 13x8 Hi, I have decided to sell my alley cat alloys, 13x8 as they are too wide for my liking, having to run stretched tyres to clear the std arches on mk 2 Escort Centre section is painted red in good condition, Spare is all silver (note bore is different for fitting to hub for this one). I don't know anything about them as they came with the car. 2 Nankang 185/60/13 tyres inc, no centre caps. £300 ono collected or could possibly arrange courier or meet somewhere to suit.

  5. Sure it is a cork gasket I bought. Found a set of Sealey crows feet on ebay, 10-19mm for £10 odd, purchased. Thought it could be tricky bending a spanner.
  6. Yeah I was going to use a 19mm last night but found an imperial one, can't remember size but it seemed a better fit, probably just a better quality spanner. I'll look into bodging some spanners to suit, cheers. As for fitting the valve cover back on, just best to stick the gasket to the cover with some rtv sealant then fit it? No need for sealant on the head? See you can buy a 19mm crows foot individually, thought you would have to buy an expensive set, might just get this instead. https://www.zoro.co.uk/shop/hand-tools/spigot-end-fittings/19mm-o-e-crowfoot-wrench-3-8"-sq--drive/p/ZT1005552X?utm_campaign=pla-Hand+Tools+-+&utm_source=google&utm_medium=shopping-pla&utm_keyword=ZT1005552X&istCompanyId=6aa6787b-063e-4414-802d-129f235df603&istItemId=wtqixrlttr&istBid=tztx&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI97CSl5Cp3QIVwbHtCh0yqwiUEAQYAiABEgIhqvD_BwE
  7. Yeah that looks like the way to go. I'm not at the car this weekend, what size spanner fits the lock nuts? Need to buy a cheapy I can bend. Got sidedraft 45 webbers on it but its still a bugger to get into!
  8. Cheers guys, using 8 & 10 thou. adjusted a few of the inlets tonight, fiddly job getting it set right! after tightening locknut. Probably need to invest in a smaller spanner for lock nuts for carb side. Get there!
  9. Hi, Escort has become very tappety low down. Can someone confirm the correct clearance (follower-cam) for bp300 cam? Found a thread for BP285 stating 0.35mm (0.014") for all valves. Also is it best to measure the clearance when cam is exactly 12:00 when the lobe is pointing directly up? New build last year, roughly done near 1000 miles. Thanks Allan
  10. Hi mate, Welcome, I'm a bit along the road from you, near Glasgow. I own a modded 4 door mk2 escort. Some lovely cars you have there!!! Escort my favourite!
  11. Thanks again for the info. The feed is now fixed, found a break in the wiring. Just the circuit board to fix now as there is a break in it at the bottom bulb for the earth. Going to try some copper tape to join it, failing that maybe get a replacement cluster off ebay and swop whole circuit. Getting there! So much for having a so called proper auto electrician look at!
  12. Hi fellas, Sorry been busy. Thanks for all the comments - More doors the better ha Love it! Its a good wee forum for help. Definitely keep an eye out for meets and try and get along to one at some point.
  13. Hi mate, Could you explain in more detail how to tap into the headlamp switch plug and where it might be located? Will it be on the column, at the stalk?
  14. I don't think there is any other option but resort back to original plan to hard wire the bulbs to a switch. I need the bulb loom complete with the holders (X3). If anyone has this, let me know. Thanks Guess I can run a new feed from a switch to the connector pin (grey/yellow) if the board is still intact.
