  1. Thanks for your reply, confirms what I thought but wanted to test the water Valaline seems a popular choice....
  2. Opinions please! what would be the best engine oil to use in a 2.9i Granada 12 valve? make, grade and viscosity, I've had a few conflicting recommendations recently! 190 @ the wheels.
  3. Just had a short break in Jersey with classic car tours in the Cortina, long ferry ride from Portsmouth - 10 hrs 20 mins, but well catered for, the Merton Hotel was excellet, it was good to have a drive around the island stopping here and there at vairous interesting places with no face masks and able to buy a beer over the bar! the journey home was on the tri hull ferry 45 mph! and a journey time of 6 hours, it was just good to get away for a few days with the car! although the weather was a bit soggy!
  4. Hello! yes all ok ta, the Cortinas been asleep for 6 months I've had my second jab so hopefully things will start to improve show and trip wise in a couple of months!!
  5. Iv'e always used BP ultimate in mine, the YB when I had it was 11:1 cr and it seemed to like it! also its just up the road from where I live so another reason to use it!
  6. We are off to Guernsey in mid June, long weekend to stretch the Cortina's legs!
  7. It's lots of pennies, so I'm fimishing my Mk5 crusader estate off instead, long term project! the block has been re bored, decked,crank ground and fitted wih a stage 2 head that I acuired but turns out that it was not all it could be, issues with the cam (injection), valves (standard), gas flowing (not finished) and porting that didn't match the manifold but it's being sorted now with a suitable high torque cam with the head relieved so that the oil seals dont get crushed, bigger stainless valves, correctly flowed and ported, and then the ECU re mapped on the rolling road, so should then be nicely drivable! the rear valance needs replacing and then it's ready to go!
  8. I saw it in the Burton's catalog, made by Quaif....
  9. Worth checking the speed limit for your van, a friend who drives a Transit Courier 7 cwt for the local fire brigade was recently fined with points for driving at 70 on the A38, these vans and above are restricted to 60 mph except on motorways, my Daughter in law was also fined for the same in her Ford Ranger Ute as it's classed as a Commercial vehicle, I' drive a work van which is also a Transit Courier wasn't sure so I confirmed it with the local Ford dealer, as the roadside money collectors will be out in force at this festive time its worth checking!
  10. Yes please I'll have one! but swop lager for real ale!
  11. I've got a Mk3 Tina with a 2.9 V6 from an 89 Scorpieo fitted, work done to the engine, gas flowed big valves and fitted with 6 injected Jenvy throttle bodys and DTA management, 190 @ the wheels and 30 mpg on a run, (if I dont joust!) goed like a train!
  12. So what's needed is a hydrogen conversion for old Fords.........
  13. What would a helical 6 speed sequential gearbox be like for road use?
