    I quite like that.

    It's in a Mk1 Sierra 5 door in Argentina, was a 1.6 now a 1.9. That's all I know...
  7. Would do if it was an OSF. [emoji1787][emoji1787][emoji1787]

    Nowt wrong with the car, it's the wheels that belong in this thread.

    Are you an off road enthusiast with no taste? Then may I present to you an Audi A4 buggy.

    What's going on here, then?
  11. I'm not a huge fan of Mk1 Fiestas and this doesn't help things.

    Stumped non starter?

    Have you taken the plugs out in turn and rested them against the block to see if you get a spark? Are the washers in the correct order on the points spindle? I did that wrong once on a mate's Morris Minor and it wouldn't fire.

    Lambo doors look silly on Lambos, let alone a Focus. And as for this Explorer...

    Cortina Atlas Rear Axle (MK3, 4, 5)

    Here's a couple of links that might help regarding the Atlas. https://www.classicfordmag.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/definitive-guide-to-atlas-axles-classic-ford.pdf https://www.classicfordmag.co.uk/tech/definitive-guide-atlas-axles/

    Rear Live Axle Choices (Cortina, Capri)

    On a second look I think it's actually a Koln axle (Mk3/4/5 Cortina). Look for two bolts near each other at the 5/6o'clock position. They are weaker than an English and I don't think there are LSDs available. As such, they are worth barely anything and best off in the bin.

    Rear Live Axle Choices (Cortina, Capri)

    Could well be a Volvo 240 axle. They are quite strong and I think some/all for the swedish market were LSD equipped from the factory.

    Is it possible the cambelt has jumped a tooth? Maybe the ignition module has failed? Have you checked the basics, ie fuel and spark?

    A monster truck or tank parked on top would help the ride height.

    "Better than it sitting there rotting." Nope, wrong.
  20. Could well have, I wouldn't have put that wing on it though, even if it had a 426.
  21. Why on earth would you tarnish a piece of Mopar history by putting a Mustang under it??

    Panhard rod

    Defo get the adjustable kit. I got the fixed one from Rally Design and it isn't level with the axle. Mock it all up with the car's weight on the tyres/axle, that's about it really. You may need to remove the ARB or even reroute the exhaust depending on which kit you get.

    Advice needed on engine choice

    Have you asked on the rodsnsods forum? Plenty of hot rod and yank knowledge on there. Sent from my SM-A320FL using Tapatalk
