  1. Brilliant adds My first car was bought for £150 1974 mk1 escort 1600 x flow some weird rally dash and had twin tanks
  2. Look at the bearing very smooth so just wear no tearing or grooves, oil pressure may have dropped when warm but not sufficient to notice if using the RS 5 clock
  3. I don’t lol just try to buy the right bits when they come up for sale, just have to prioritise if poss lol the Anglia needs sills/jacking points welding so I’ll get it stripped as the nights are now getting longer so couple of late nights will get that done Mk2 Mexico is being put up for sale soon and Mk1 RS2000 I’m still buying stuff so maybe next year will tackle the paintwork so only leaves me the cortina to do this summer (and the Rover P5b)
  4. Your probably thinking a red top anyway lol if it arrives it’s got to be fitted really hasn’t it
  5. Just trying to arrange collection, think I have a lotus slant engine on its way fingers crossed
  6. Yes bearings definitely on their last legs
  7. Yes me to 😂 hence my user name lol
  8. My thoughts were to sell the cortina on but been chatting today and think I should restore it, but more rolling resto get the engine bay painted and detail the engine remove the interior as that was fitted back in 1988 as the original interior was stolen, replace it with some roll top recaro’s and get rear seat trimmed to match I have a set of Mexico deep dish steels which would suit it paint the rear panel,bumpers, handles and mirrors satin black a-la ‘S’
  9. I don’t use anything! Not seen any issues on cars I work on day to day and do you do 12000 miles a year? dont bother is my opinion

  11. I’ve been offered a Mk1 Cortina 4 door pre airflow if anyone is interested please let me know currently don’t know much about it but hopefully next couple of days I will Price will be about £3250
  12. If it’s that bad prob diff jack it up and check for play on propshaft
  13. Hi and welcome you could do Zetec\St170 engine turbo or N/A or even dare I say red top (for col) 😂 but depends what you want to get out of the car get some pics up
  14. Stunning looking cars, not a fan of a mk3 but that does look good why are you selling up? Have you found something else
  15. It has an mot 😁 few advisory bits, lower wishbone bushes, brake lines have small amount of corrosion, tyre, battery was loose but I’m very happy with that outcome
