    I would get some heat eventualy though! it would also be handy in the summer traffic ques, extra cooling from the heater.........

    With the cold weather approaching I need to get some heat into the heater matrix on my Mk 3 Cortina, the engine is a 12 valve 2.9 Cologne with throttle bodies and a Ric Wood inlet manifold that has no heater outlet, would it work to tap the hot water off from the rad top hose? the return would feed back into the bottom of the block, any thoughts?
  3. The axle has now been re-built by Old Ford Auto services, 3.09 CWP fitted and set up, plates stripped and cleaned and new bearings fitted to replace the noisy ones which were badly worn, drove it back from Bracknell to Plymouth today all quiet with no problems! a job for next year will be new half shafts as the splines are worn, drag racing I guess!
  4. Mr. Ford should produce the new Capri now! suppose there would have to be a hybrid one though.........
  5. I bought mine a couple of years ago to replace my Vauxhall Combo, (which was ok) quiet, nippy and with the 1500 diesel good to drive, big load space and will take a euro pallet, I would reccomend it!
  6. Problem solved! Ive found a company who can refurbish my Atlas axle, "Old Ford auto services based in Bracknell, they are happy for me to leave the car with them to sort out, a bit of a trip but has to be done correctly
  7. Not EBC, but I used to have Green stuff pads in my mk3 Tina but they used to squeal a lot when stopping, swapped to Mintex, same stopping power and no squealing!
  8. I use a scissor jack, small light and very low so that it fits under the suspension when the tyre is flat, make sure that it has a wide base though.
  9. The operating temp is usually stamped into the thermostat......
  10. Just to rule it out, could be worth trying it with the thermostat removed......
  11. Hello! sounds like a plan, it's a fair distance from me but I want to get it done, I have a good 3.09 CWP set and would want any suspect bearings and LSD plates changing, early September would be good for me after all the tourists have gone home! but that would depend on your workload, whereabouts in Guilford are you based?

  12. Im based in Plymouth but prepared to travel! no one localy seems to carry out this work......
  13. When I first put a 2.9 Cologne in my Mk3 I used an FX4 taxi rad, it was ok except in traffic jams and when escaping from car shows etc, I now have a big bespoke aluminuim rad fitted, had to cut into the slam panel about 25mm to give it clearance and fitted 2 Kenlow fans, it never overheats now, I did take the engine fan off to save engine power and electric fans dont come on when on the open road, as said your two fans could be working against each other.
  14. Thanks for the info, his site is under construction at the moment, but there is a pic of an Escort rally car so guess he is well acquainted with Atlas axles! have you used you used him for work?
