    Wanted Mk2 Escort Fiddly Trim Bits

    MK2 Mexico being brought up to a show in North Wales (RS Owners club show or something) in 2016 on a service station on the M5. Car had come from PORT ISAAC, where the series Doc Martin is filmed. Is a 1976 car, one owner, and I forgot the dealers name it came from, it is in the rear window. Car had less than 4000 miles on it, but was not interested in parting with it, inside was as nice as my new modern car, if not better. As can be seen on this one, 1.6 badge on wings in silver, silver door handles, silver boot lock, silver gutter moulding, the wiper arms were silver as well, the only thing not silver was the door mirrors, they are both black. Boot lid had "ESCORT" in silver on L.H.S, and MEXICO on R.H.S. Would love to have seen it running, would have been as tight as a drum. Inside was strange though, no clock, no radio, no glove box, but it had a roof aerial.

    1600 xflow throttle linkage setup mk1

    Not sure what it is off, but it looks as though it was originally for an auto box car, pretty sure that the throttle cable should pass through the lower hole in the black bracket, the kickdown cable would then be in the top hole of the black bracket ??!! What car is it on, I have a few GT brackets for the Escort MK2 Ghia & 1600 Sport (same bracket and rod).

    MK1 RS2000 electrical issue

    An alternator output will not change very much upon rising revs if there is no demand, that is the job of the regulator, if the demand is say 7 amps and that can be supplied by the alternator at 1000 RPM, increasing the revs to 2000 RPM the demand would still be 7 amps, so the alternator would not need to supply more, 13.8Volts is not what I would call "Charging Voltage", 14+ Volts would deliver a better charge rate, as long as it does not exceed 14.6 Volts, 13.8 Volts is what I would expect an alternator to give out at tick over on a light load, switch on the headlamps and/or rear window and then increase the revs to 1000 RPM + and the voltage should be closer to 14 Volts indicating that current is being produced.

    South African paint code ZZ

    Looks pretty close to Venetian red on my 1976 Mexico MK2. If the car is being painted all over, then that's what I would go with, makes future paint rectification that much simpler. Nice car.
